Running Shoes, Lying Labels, and Fat but Fit Research

Shoes (via e.t)
  • Running shoes may be good for your feet, but they're really bad for your knees, shows new research. Even worse, apparently, than walking around in high-heel shoes.  Another point for barefoot running.
  • Bad news, new research shows that lots of packaged and restaurant foods have more calories than their labels claim.
  • Lots of research shows people who are fit but overweight have better health outcomes that skinny people who are out of shape, but a new study shows that fitness isn't a free pass. Fit people with a few extra pounds are still at far greater risk for heart disease than they would be if they dropped to a lower BMI.
