The Exercise Myth.
As a new study shows that millions of people exercising for their health's sake will get no benefit, evidence over the last half century suggests that they aren't the only ones. So are the recommendations that we should exercise more, just another scam?

Correct Nutrition for Athletes
Athletics is becoming increasingly competitive. More and more stress is being placed on how well you perform. To reach your highest potential, all of your body systems must be perfectly tuned. Nothing is more important to your well-being and ability to perform than good nutrition. Eating the right foods helps you maintain desirable body weight, stay physically fit, and establish optimum nerve-muscle reflexes. Without the right foods, even physical conditioning and expert coaching aren't enough to push you to your best. Good nutrition must be a key part of your training program if you are to succeed. . .

Feed Your Brain to Win
The link between carbohydrate intake and poorer performance. I don't shoot many target tournaments these days (I prefer the other disciplines). Normally just my own club's indoor and outdoor championships. But in an attempt to entice more of my local club's archers to shoot target tournaments, I recently allowed myself to be coerced into going with them. It was an education in more ways than one. . .

Moderate Protein for Muscle
For thousands of years, people have believed that eating large amounts of protein made it easier to build bigger, stronger muscles. Take Milo of Croton, the winner of five consecutive Olympic wrestling championships in the sixth century BC: If ancient writers are to be believed, he built his crushing strength in part by consuming 20 pounds of meat every day. . .

Are Cyclists Pedaling Towards Osteoporosis?
While maintaining a steady exercise regimen is one of the best things people can do for their general good health, recent studies suggest an alarming correlation between bicycling and the onset of osteopenia (lower-than-normal bone density) or osteoporosis (very low bone mineral density), even among those who are young and fit. . . .

Exercise Doesn't Eliminate Obesity Death Risks
Increased physical activity does not eliminate the potentially deadly health risks associated with obesity, US study findings suggest, just as being lean does not counteract the risks connected to low fitness levels.
