"Silence" is a large part of well-being. "Silence" is the sound of things not happening—calls not being made, conversations not being started, and entertainment not being absorbed. How can someone who advocates taking control over your own life and reclaiming your health and well-being also praise "silence" as a good thing?...

To get the best results from your cardio workouts, do you know how fast your heart rate should be and for how long? ...Maximum heart rate is exactly what it sounds like.

So, why do people hate their bodies? Usually, it's because they don't look the way they think they should. But the question that needs to be asked is, what should they look like? What is the "perfect" weight? This is an important point because our ideals that we compare ourselves to are a big problem when it comes to our body image. We live in a culture that is constantly holding up ideals that are not real...

We all know that too much sitting is bad for you. But if your job requires it - or even if your lifestyle is just more sedentary than it ought to be - you can still avoid outgrowing your pants. I ran across a study in the January issue of the European Heart Journal which finds that it's not just the length of time people spend sitting that makes waistbands tight, but how infrequently they get up from their chairs...

One of my favorite outdoor activities is hiking, and I once had the pleasure of taking Entertainment Tonight host Mark Steines on one of my favorite hikes in the local mountains for a segment on their show.  We had a lot of laughs, and at one point he (and the camera crew) stood back as I leapt across a stream in our path, landing on a rock on the other side. Mark paid me a great compliment - not on my waistline or tone, but on an aspect of fitness we often overlook:  Good balance.

One of the reasons so many people struggle with back pain and all the many variations of it is because the majority of the treatments recommended by doctors don't address the main causes of the pain. It's highly unlikely you'll ever hear about any of this from your doctor.

Exercise not only makes you healthier, it also may make you more intelligent.

New research shows that in addition to causing the release of chemicals called endorphins — welldocumented as the source of the  "runner's high" — exercise may contribute to the formation of new connections among nerve cells in the brain and even to the growth of new cells. Other research has underscored the strong correlation between exercise and higher mental function.

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles. When glycogen storage reaches full capacity, all the extra carbs are converted into fat...
