According to researchers at Harvard University reporting in the journal Obesity Reviews, “Exercise seems to encourage a healthy diet. In fact, when exercise is added to a weight-loss diet, treatment of obesity is more successful and the diet is adhered to in the long run.” Bottom line: You need to combine diet with physical activity to lose weight and keep it off.
•Short Walks Cut Chocolate Consumption in Half: Do you need more reasons to get out there and take a walk? How about reducing your chocolate consumption --especially in high-stress situations. Researchers at the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom reported in the journal Appetite that a 15-minute walk can cut snacking on chocolate at work by 50 percent.
•Trying to Stop Chocolate Cravings? -- A Photo May Help: If you’re trying to avoid unhealthy foods, picking up a fashion magazine may help. Researchers studied the effect of viewing thin and overweight images of models in chocolate advertisements. The results showed that those who viewed the photos of “thin women” were less likely to eat chocolate.
