Food labels with caloric costs in exercise could lead to healthier choices -

Food labels with caloric costs in exercise could lead to healthier choicesPooled data from 14 randomized trials showed that labels with activity times induced consumers to cut back nearly 65 calories per meal more than labels that simply listed calories, researchers reported in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health. "The PACE food labeling, where you show how many minutes of physical activity are required to expend the calories in a food may be a good way of helping the public make healthier food decisions and reduce overall calorie consumption," said the study's lead author, Amanda Daley, a professor of behavioral medicine at Loughborough University in the UK. "We know that the public underestimates the number of calories in food, so we need to find an easy method to make it easier for the public to make healthier decisions about what they eat," Daley said in an email.

The excavation contractor, L.E. Bell Construction Co. of Heflin, Alabama, and Colonial Pipeline, which is based in suburban Atlanta, both instituted safety procedures to prevent a repeat of the deadly accident afterward, the report said.

Resistance exercise may preserve bone in older obese dieters -

Resistance exercise may preserve bone in older obese dietersWeight loss efforts among obese adults are linked to an increased risk of thinning, brittle bones that are prone to fractures, the study team writes in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research. While exercise can strengthen bones and reduce the risk of falls and fractures, doctors don't yet know the optimal workout routine for obese people who are dieting. For the current study, researchers randomly assigned 141 obese adults to one of four groups: dieters who did only aerobic exercise, dieters who only did resistance exercise, dieters who did both types of exercise, or a control group that didn't exercise or diet.
