Why It's So Important To Keep Moving "During the three days of inactivity, volunteers’ blood sugar levels spiked significantly after meals, with the peaks increasing by about 26 percent compared with when the volunteers were exercising and moving more. What’s more, the peaks grew slightly with each successive day."—Gretchen Reynolds, NY Times
It's The Fat That Matters "Another important message is that protein content does matter. Those eating 15% or 25% protein gained lean muscle mass along with the fat. That’s a good thing, because more muscle means faster metabolism. The problem is that the diet low in protein caused a decrease in lean body mass.
“There is no health-related benefit to a reduction in lean body mass,” Dr. Bray stated. That’s a bit of an understatement because, by slowing metabolism, lower lean body mass encourages further weight gain. An editorial that accompanied the report of the study in the January 4, 2012, Journal of the American Medical Association focused on the negative effect of overeating beyond weight gain."—Clarence Bass, Ripped
