With Memorial Day having come and gone and the 4th of July drawing near, an article recently published on fitbottomedgirls.com still has a ton of relevance. Contributed by an authoress named Kelly, the article discusses the pros and cons of national holidays on the health of the population. With a concerted focus on burning calories, Kelly delves into our sedentary, over-eating habits during the holidays and how it can really put a dent in our health.

Malia Frey recently contributed an article to about.com on a topic that many people struggling to exercise will find refreshing. In her piece she discusses not just the importance of exercising but also the trouble that people experience when it comes to self motivation and exercise. Citing a recently published study by the American Cancer Society, Frey explains that 40% of women would exercise more if it felt less like chore and more like fun. This is not a new concept as it can be compared to many things within our lives outside the scope of exercise. We see it in children who don't like to read and in adults who don't like common but mandatory tasks like house cleaning.

Initially the article discusses the difference between losing weight and losing fat, itemizing that it is easy to lose weight but not fat. Weight loss specifically in this context was cited as being the loss of vital fluids, proteins and muscle mass. It would seem that the rest of the article begins to meander downhill from this point. Shortly after stating the difference between weight loss and fats loss, the article declares that the reason the body holds onto fat is because it is anticipating famine.

Jarretmorrow.com recently published an insightful article outlining some of the things that we do that may actually hurt our fitness programs or render them ineffective. It is human nature to want to fix things or to self medicate. We often do the best we can with what we know but if what we know is flawed or inaccurate - just how much good can we possibly accomplish? As far as health matters are concerned, the media inundates us with information from this study to the next, independent research bodies strive to prove fact over fallacy and the internet itself has given so many people a platform that it is difficult to separate the legitimate from the illegitimate.
