Interesting article. I follow the keto way of eating and this adds to the reasons I need to exercise regularly.

I have never been one to follow the fad diets no matter how much they are touted as ‘the one’. This one sentence, however, put a horrible picture in my mind!
“…In addition to causing obesity, a high-fat diet can cause increased fat in the bone marrow. …”
I know some people get positive results from the different diets out there, but I’d rather just eat food from across the board, fat and sugar included. If I cut out or deny myself something in my diet for too long my body rebels and that is an ugly scene to watch.

A few years ago I was eating bacon and eggs on a nearly daily basis.
Went to the Dr.s and to my surprise, and her’s, my cholesterol numbers were fantastic!
However, those were our free range eggs, and my own minimally processed, pasture ranged pork/bacon.
Now that the season is winding down, I will have to put myself back on a regular exercise routine.

@crazy-me, that’s the way I go, eat everything in moderation. It seem to work for me since I weight now the same I weighted when I was 20 and my weight has always been withing few pounds of this. I hardly ever see a doctor, take no medicine and all my blood test are perfect.
I know some people get positive results from the different diets out there
but what people always seem to forget is that they work for people who had problems before and hardly anyone talk of long term results. I always hear “I lost 50 lbs and my cholesterol is great.” But that means that person was 50 lbs or more overweight. Where will he be in a couple of years?

Fitness is very important now a days due to less protein foods. People are getting unfit or you can say fat.
After checking this I have found an easy way to lose weight and to stay fit. I have wrote a article related to boiled egg diet plan, I want you all to read that and let me know if this work for you.

I am fat well over ideal bmi…. but everything scores in low and healthy range done blood tests last week, why first of all bmi is bs measurement. Second type of food and processing is key like crowbar said. Third is activity level.
At 510 i should not weight 230 lb but i do at 15 percent fat by the floating test. I can also haul in hay bales/ feed all day and walk well over 10,000 steps a day 15 to 20 on heavy walk days.
When you think of healthy you think of marathon runner who looks like a consentration camp victim or a sprinter who looks like a gym monkey or is it inbetween?
So many people go to gym to be “fit” stop wasting energy doing useless stuff find an activity you like that has physical component and use the energy to make yourself happier and more fit.
Note to gym monkeys ever notice the more people lift the more injuries over time happen? It is about micro tears in muscles to help them grow ie the burn… best way to achieve is 1/3 of max weight done at very slow reps ie 30 second cycle full range after 3 sets of those you will be completely burned without risking injury from lifting heavy yet still get both strength and bulk gains
For those who want lung capacity look up VO2 max training. Only thing that adds lung capacity not just more efficient use of current capacity. This is very important if you have asthma like me or other lung disease, what kiĺls us is when we get sick or have an attack that the lungs dont exchange oxygen properly more surface area with faster recovery will save your life in grid down. If you cant spend 30 min 3 times a week on your lung health then you just really dont care about yourself.
It was explained to me like this running is like tuning up engine to get best mileage, VO2max is like building a bigger engine. When you get sick it is losing lung capacity does not matter how effiecient you are you need capacity to get the job done. Ie there is no replacement for displacement.
