This past week, I attended the American College of Sports Medicine annual conference. This is where much of the high level scientific research is disseminated in the health and fitness field. The presenters are generally MD's, PhD's and MD/PhD's. It is from this research and organization that the exercise guidelines are created for the health and fitness industry.
This fascinating PBS video discusses the effects of eating on our health. In his video, Michael Mosley, MD spends time with 3 scientists who are all doing research on aging. It seems that eating less and fasting might help us to live longer and have healthier lives.
