Black girls don't benefit as much from exercise: study
Reuters ^

In a new study of U.S. preteen and teen girls, daily exercise was strongly linked to weight and obesity in white girls but not black girls.

Although it's still important to promote physical activity in all young people, according to the researchers that may not be enough to prevent black girls -- who have a higher rate of obesity to begin with -- from gaining weight.

So there you go: exercise is a racist notion set up by evil white men to hold back little black girls.

Who knew?

I am wondering if all of these stories regarding the dangers or ineffectivness of exercise are part of a campaign to encourage the governmentt to go after “Big Foods”. After all, if exercise is dangerous and useless, the only soution would be to control “Big Foods”.

You know, I’m not a dietitian... But it’s clear that people get fat because they eat more than they need. It’s all about eating too much. If you eat just enough to keep your temperature at 98.6 degrees and support whatever physical activity you have, you won’t gain weight.

It’s not rocket science...

Take your weight (in pounds) and multiply it by 9.8. That is the maximum amount of calories one should in take daily.

If you weigh 120 lbs, the most you should eat is 1176 calories, barring any need for additional calories.

If you weigh 200 lbs, it should be 1960.

I have an idea: lower simple carbs, increase complex carbs, fats and proteins, and increase exercise.

Ta-da! You lose weight and inches.

I always thought I had a wicked metabolism....but found out that i'm REAL CONSISTeNT about my calorie intake.

My dad was the same way. At the end of winter, he usually had gained 10 pounds and went to two meals a day until he lost it...which was very quick.

Imagine...for 60 years, he was 5'10" and weighed 185 lbs. No gut on my dad!!

It's all about habits!!

Genetics aside, diet and nutrition are about two thirds responsible for how much you weigh and exercise is the other third.

If you don’t have your nutrition and calories accounted for, exercising will not be too helpful in losing weight.
