What you eat is only part of your weight-loss success. To burn calories and fat, you need to get moving. Just as you’ve started to plan your week of meals, put exercise on your calendar. The recommended weekly amount of activity for adults is 150 minutes of moderate activity, like brisk walking, or 75 minutes of more vigorous activity like running, plus at least two strength-training sessions. Just 10 minutes at a time is enough to get the benefits of exercise (and we can all find 10 minutes in our schedules). Make a walking date with a friend, or try a new class at your gym.

What if you turned on the news and heard that the world was flat? And, to support that bold claim, the news anchor shared the results of one study. Would you believe it at first pass?

While this example may seem far-fetched, something similar happened recently in the nutrition world: a new research review proposing upper intake limits for omega-3 fats sparked headlines that caused many to think the message was “dump out your fish-oil supplements.”
