Weekend Roundup: low-fat diets and weight loss; how stress makes you sick; and improving your squat

“At least once in your life you did something that was brave…only question is…when will we care enough to be brave again?”

                                                                      -Seth Godin

A few headlines that caught my eye this week:

  • A new systematic review of randomized clinical trials (i.e. the strongest study design) comparing low-fat and low-carb diets in their efficacy for long-term weight loss.
  • How stress makes you sick.
  • Another study shows how physical activity prevents mental disorders.
  • Consumers beware: Big Food scheming to try and win back your trust.
  • What’s the limiting joint in a failed barbell squat? Insights for your training.
