Friday Five: Five weight loss ideas whose effects have probably been exaggerated.

Posted May 15 2009 11:26pm

I’m sick on my day off. Of course. And so I’m not even going to list these with my usual rambling “explanations.” I’m just going to link to people who say it better than I do.

1. Green Tea
2. Gaining muscle
3. HIIT (High intensity interval training)
4. “Fat burning” zones

5. Ok, I don’t actually have five. There are a lot more of these ideas out there, of course. Offhand I can think of several people in the last month who have told me they only work out on an empty stomach (um, what?) or that they never ever ever ever eat after 7pm (the magic fat hour!) So you fill in number five for me. Tell me what people around you are convinced is some kind of super fat-burning magic bullet. Yeah, that’s right, do my blogging for me. You got a problem. Wanna fight about it?


I’m going back to bed. Happy Friday, everyone.
