Do you wear your FITBIT and try to get in your 10,000 steps every day?  Do you step it up a notch and jog a little bit instead of merely running?  Jogging is supposed to be the best form of exercise you can get, right?

Or are you more of a bicycle enthusiast, riding your bike for 20 miles because you can?

While jogging and biking are definitely good, one of these is much more beneficial to you than the other.

What do Dodgeball and Musical Chairs have in common?


By web gangsta | Published:

Like most of us, Web Watch remembers the joys and the horrors of grade school gym class.

Remember that annual tradition of learning square dancing during the cold winter months?  Nobody liked doing that, but it was something for the gym teachers to foist upon their charges and hope for the best.

Anything was better than running laps, typically.  Square dancing wasn’t it.

You’ll never guess how many hours of exercise obese people get in a year


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch could make a million dollars by supplying doctors and physician offices with a stack of Post-It Notes and prescription pads that have LOSE WEIGHT and GET MORE EXERCISE printed on them as part of the standard checkup diagnosis.

There may be rare cases where a physician tells a patient that they have to eat more in order to maintain certain aspects of health, but the vast majority of us do need to lose some weight or get more exercise on a regular basis.

Survey shows SLIM-FAST is a better diet than NUTRISYSTEM


By web gangsta | Published:

We’re always on some sort of diet.  You may be on a diet and not know it (check with your significant other if unsure).

For some, it’s just a question of eating less, eating healthier, eating in more instead of eating out.  Packing a lunch for school or work, bypassing desserts, cutting out alcohol for Lent…. no matter how you do it, there’s always some sort of decison making that goes along with your meal plan of choice.

What’s your New Year’s Resolution going to be?


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s getting to be about that time of year, where everyone stops celebrating the holidays and starts looking more towards things that they can do to improve their lives in the upcoming year.

Many experts all say the same thing — you shouldn’t be worried about making a New Year’s Resolution, but rather make yourself a New Year’s Commitment.

The difference is that commitments are more binding, mentally and physically, over a mere resolution where you try to achieve something that may or may not happen.   It’s all about committing to your stated goal, forcing that new habit to take effect.  A resolution?  Beh.

Strollers, car seats, and shopping carts are making your kids fat


By web gangsta | Published:

Are your kids fat?

If you’re a normal, reasonable parent – chances are that you’re going to say, “no – my kids are not fat”.  Perhaps they’re merely big-boned, or still are working off their baby fat.

Think we’re crazy for even asking?  We don’t think so — One study published in the New York Times says that 10% of all children under 2 years old are overweight.  That 12.4% of children between the ages of 2 and 5 years old are obese.

If your child is obese at the age of 5 years old — and if obesity doesn’t run in your family genetically at that age — then maybe, just maybe, there’s something in the manner you’re raising your child that is contributing to their lardness.

Should you take the stairs or take the elevator?


By web gangsta | Published:

Should you take the elevator, or should you take the stairs?

This is really a first-world problem, but one that many people have to face every day.  Sometimes it is just easier to take the elevator than it is to take the stairs, no question.

But “easier” isn’t always the best answer.
