The Best Health and Fitness News
If you haven’t noticed, the Paleo diet is getting more popular at treating multiple sclerosis.
In rats, adding a high sugar diet to a high fat diet (similar to that of an American diet, could be worst than JUST a high fat diet. Who would’ve thought? Given the current state of chronic diseases, I’d say that a diet like that is pretty detrimental to the health of humans also.
Most of us are well aware that too much sun exposure can be detrimental to our long term health. However, did you know that the least sunny states have the highest rates of Melanoma?

The Worst Health and Fitness News
Why eating fruits and vegetables won’t make you thin – is the latest study to come from the University of Alabama Birmingham School of Public Health.
The reason: people don’t eliminate other foods in place of the fruits and vegetables.
It’s unfortunate the public has to sift through news like this (luckily I do it for you). It should go without saying, calories are calories (although fruit and vegetable calories are definitely better than some other types of caloreis). At the end of the day, eating extra calories (on top of what you’re already eating) is going to prevent you from hitting your weight loss goals.
My recommendation: Make fruits and vegetables a part of your diet but in doing so, take out some of the “bad.” Try ditching some of the extra pasta on your plate, or whatever it is that seems to be your kryptonite.
