New Course for the 20th Anniversary WALT DISNEY WORLD(r) Marathon!

Se ve genial. Esta vez corre por todo EPCOT dandole la vuelta a los paises!

Vale la pena ver el video del recorrido.

Can Runners Have ‘Too Many Miles on the Tires’?

“…if you start racing when you are young, you will be worse in middle age than if you started fresh when you were older.”

A Mathematical Challenge to Obesity

Super interesante articulo en el, cortesia de marquitos.

“… if you reduce your caloric intake, after a while, your body reaches equilibrium. It actually takes about three years for a dieter to reach their new “steady state.”

“The epidemic was caused by the overproduction of food in the United States.”

“One of the things the numbers have shown us is that weight change, up or down, takes a very, very long time. All diets work. But the reaction time is really slow: on the order of a year.”

Este estudio esta de acuerdo con mi teoria.

Aerobic exercise reduces neuronal responses in food reward brain regions.

Nero Evero, Laura C. Hackett, Robert D. Clark, Suzanne Phelan, and Todd A. Hagobian

Journal of Applied Physiology May 1, 2012 vol. 112 no. 9 1612-1619

Acute exercise suppresses ad libitum energy intake, but little is known about the effects of exercise on food reward brain regions. After an overnight fast, 30 (17 men, 13 women), healthy, habitually active (age = 22.2 ± 0.7 yr, body mass index = 23.6 ± 0.4 kg/m2, V̇O2peak = 44.2 ± 1.5 ml·kg−1·min−1) individuals completed 60 min of exercise on a cycle ergometer or 60 min of rest (no-exercise) in a counterbalanced, crossover fashion. After each condition, blood oxygen level-dependent responses to high-energy food, low-energy food, and control visual cues, were measured by functional magnetic resonance imaging. Exercise, compared with no-exercise, significantly (P < 0.005) reduced the neuronal response to food (high and low food) cues vs. control cues in the insula (−0.37 ± 0.13 vs. +0.07 ± 0.18%), putamen (−0.39 ± 0.10 vs. −0.10 ± 0.09%), and rolandic operculum (−0.37 ± 0.17 vs. 0.17 ± 0.12%). Exercise alone significantly (P < 0.005) reduced the neuronal response to high food vs. control and low food vs. control cues in the inferior orbitofrontal cortex (−0.94 ± 0.33%), insula (−0.37 ± 0.13%), and putamen (−0.41 ± 0.10%). No-exercise alone significantly (P < 0.005) reduced the neuronal response to high vs. control and low vs. control cues in the middle (−0.47 ± 0.15%) and inferior occipital gyrus (−1.00 ± 0.23%). Exercise reduced neuronal responses in brain regions consistent with reduced pleasure of food, reduced incentive motivation to eat, and reduced anticipation and consumption of food. Reduced neuronal response in these food reward brain regions after exercise is in line with the paradigm that acute exercise suppresses subsequent energy intake.
