Let’s start the week off right by discussing some of the news you may have missed this past week.
Exercise Not the Most Helpful Weight Loss Tool
An article from Vox appeared Friday, detailing how exercise does not result in shedding pounds. At least, not as much as we’d like to think. For the amount of time it takes to burn 500 calories at the gym, you can eat it back in a few minutes by mindlessly noshing on granola or downing a protein packed post-workout shake. Bottom line, watch what goes into your mouth if you want to drop lbs.
The Honest Company Gets Sued…Again!
For you mamas and papas who love yourself some Honest Company prods, know that the highly popular business of Jessica Alba’s is being sued. The lawsuit claims that it’s Premium Organic Infant Formula contains 11 synthetic substances…allegedly. This isn’t the first time the company has been accused of false advertising. Last summer disgruntled customers took to social media to show sunburns endured after applying the company’s sunscreen.
Exercise Labels on Food?
If you’ve ever wondered how many squats it would take to burn off that donut you just ate, the world of food labeling may have you covered. The UK’s Royal Society for Public Health wants to start putting exercise suggestions on packaged food to help people make better diet choices. We’re not sure if this idea will take off or make its way to the states, but the idea is problematic to say the least. How much you burn depends on intensity of movement, as well as your body weight. Also, when are we going to start seeing food as fuel and not some evil thing we have to destroy with exercise?
To Weigh or Not to Weigh + Other Stories
Of course, we couldn’t leave ourselves out of the line-up. Founder, Holly J, gave her expert opinion on weighing yourself regularly. We also gave a great breakfast recipe for a Blueberry Cacao Smoothie Bowl and featured this great Hudson Valley Based company, Blessed Brewery. Their kombucha is major. Check them out pronto.
