This article, the second installment in a four-part series on meal timing, discusses the physiological effects of various time-restricted eating patterns. Series author Tyler Hass reviews the scientific literature on the subject and calls for more studies on a wider variety of populations using different intermittent fasting strategies, better quality food, and more effective exercise protocols.Read MoreMeal Timing: The Fasting Window
As politicians justify lockdowns to prevent COVID-19 deaths, the unintended consequences must be considered. Unemployment and missed medical treatments contribute to an estimated 700,000 years of life lost for every month of lockdown. This opinion piece argues for a careful return to normalcy.Read the articleThe COVID-19 Shutdown Will Cost Americans Millions of Years of Life
Science is the objective branch of knowledge. Yet objectivity is not an absolute, and it is not guaranteed simply by supplying measurements. Objectivity lies in scientific models and their predictive powers. Objectivity is not a discrete entity, either present or absent, but is a continuously valued parameter.Read MoreScientists vs. Science: Notes on Objectivity
In this 2020 editorial, the editor-in-chief of Molecular Brain finds a significant share of authors are unable or unwilling to provide the raw data to substantiate their results, raising questions regarding the potential for unchecked fraud and error.Read MoreNo Raw Data, No Science: Another Possible Source of the Reproducibility Crisis
Nearly 90% of Americans have suboptimal metabolic health and may therefore have increased risk of infectious disease morbidity and/or mortality.Read MorePrevalence of Optimal Metabolic Health in American Adults
“Low levels of physical activity put adults at increased risk of chronic diseases like obesity, cardiovascular disease and stroke which are also potential risk factors for more severe complications if someone develops COVID-19. It is concerning that in the mid to long term, multiple lockdowns might lead to prolonged periods of low physical activity which could increase the size of the population that is most vulnerable to severe complications from COVID-19.”Read the article Inactivity Caused by COVID-19 Lockdowns Risks Chronic Disease Spike
This small trial indicates carbohydrate/calorie restriction and exercise have significant, additive benefits on multiple measures of cognitive function and performance in men and women with metabolic syndrome.Read MoreCarbohydrate-Restricted Diet and Exercise Increase Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor and Cognitive Function
Tabata box jump, 16/20-in. box
Tabata handstand hold
The Tabata interval is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for eight intervals. For L-sit and handstand hold, count the number of seconds maintained in the hold. There is no rest between exercises.
Post total reps/seconds for each exercise to comments.
The term “physiologic conditioning” refers to a planned program of exercise directed toward improving the functional capacity of a particular bodily system. There are four basic principles of physiologic conditioning that trainers and athletes must take into account: overload, specificity, reversibility, and individual differences.Read the article Principles of Physiologic Conditioning
A survey of low-carb dieters reveals consistent and substantial improvements across a variety of measures of metabolic, mental, and overall health.Read MoreA Low-Carbohydrate Survey: Evidence for Sustainable Metabolic Syndrome Reversal
21-15-9 reps of:
Choose the heaviest dumbbells and most difficult variant of the pull-up at which you can still complete a set of 21 reps. Try to complete each exercise unbroken.
Post time, dumbbell load, and type of pull-ups performed to comments. Compare to 160113.
“We should not miss the opportunity to talk about the conditions that have made Americans especially vulnerable to this pandemic: our poor state of health. Some 60% of the U.S. population has at least one diet-related, chronic diseases, and numerous reports have cited these diseases as associated with increased risk for worsened outcomes from COVID-19.”Read the article Is It Time to Quarantine Junk Food?

As American waistlines have expanded over the past several decades, so has the amount of time we spend eating. Part one of this three-part series on meal timing summarizes significant research findings related to meal frequency and examines the impact of various eating patterns on health and athletic performance.Read MoreMeal Timing: Frequency
