"Why Exercise Won`t Make You Thin"
This is a great cover story from Time Magazine from August 2009 to get you thinking! It provides some insight for people who regularly exercise however just can`t seem to reach their weight loss goals. Good conversation starter!
"What`s The Best Diet? Eating Less Food"
Another great article from Time Magazine from February 2009! It is based on a study published in the Feb. 26th issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. The article uncovers the "magic" of some highly publicized diets such as low carb, high protein etc. Bottom line: It is not a single type of food that needs to be cut for weight loss but rather less calories need to be consumed overall.
