Happy Friday! I’ve been fully back in the country for a week, the jetlag is long gone and I’m finally getting caught up on…everything (well, except for a huge pile of clean laundry that needs to be folded). This links post is also a catch-up on articles I’ve had published while I was away/offline, plus a few other great nutrition-related links that caught my eye. Enjoy!
- This is likely the week’s top story: After ‘The Biggest Loser,’ their bodies fought to regain weight.
- And a follow-up piece in the NY Times: Short answers to hard questions about weight loss.
- And here’s my semi-related article that ran today in The Washington Post (written while I was in France): 5 reasons we regain weight.
- You aren’t a lab rat, but this article about how exercise helps prevent weight gain more than it promotes weight loss was interesting: To keep obesity at bay, exercise may trump diet.
- And along those same lines, on a human front: Why you shouldn’t exercise to lose weight, explained with 60+ studies.
- Turning now to food, with some wisdom from Ellie Krieger: Greek? Nonfat? Fruit-flavored? A dietitian dishes on yogurt.
- My latest article in Today’s Dietitian: Key ingredients of the Mediterranean Diet – The nutritious sum of delicious parts.
- My most recent On Nutrition column: Excuses for not cooking healthful meals, and 4 ways to beat them.
- And before that: The year of the pulse: How to use nutritious beans and lentils.
- And before that: What’s behind your belly troubles? Eating for IBS.
There! I think I’m caught up. Have a wonderful weekend!
