Medical memo: A little at a time: Eating and exercising in bits and pieces
A little at a time: Eating and exercising in bits and pieces
It's hard to ignore advice from experts. For years, nutritionists (and mothers) have made three square meals the gold standard for healthy eating. Likewise, physiologists (and coaches) have advocated regular exercise for optimal fitness. But in today's busy world, it can be hard for a guy to sit down for three meals or to stay moving for 30 straight minutes. Is there another way?
Possibly. New research suggests that frequent small meals can be nutritionally sound and that frequent short periods of exercise can add up to fitness and health. It may not be better, but it is different.
