One minute can be a good goal for a non-runner to achieve. When on a walk, set a timer on your phone and begin running when you hit the ‘start’ button. Run like you’re trying to catch something or someone. It’s OK if have a hard time making it the full minute. Just keep trying every day for one minute, and you will be able to do it. Then, you could try adding a second minute later in your walk or doubling your running time for a two-minute interval. A second minute, or even third, does seem to increase the benefit to your bone health. Plus, it burns a few more calories that can contribute to weight loss.

Even if it’s greek yogurt, put it down. Just for a second. Turn the container around and check the sugar content before spooning in another delicious mouthful.
Yogurt and greek yogurt have gained popularity in recent years due to their high protein content. For gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and lap band patients, greek yogurts often have upwards of 10-13 g protein in each 6 oz cup, which goes a long way toward meeting their daily goal of 80g protein. But, if you are trying to lose weight (like bariatric surgery patients) or even just be healthy, you’ll want to make sure you aren’t eating heaping spoonfuls of sugar alongside of your protein.

According to a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, a sedentary lifestyle is bad for us. That we know. It leads to health problems and possibly an early death. But, according to this study, if you did sit for 12 or 13 hours a day (easily accomplished with a desk job) sitting for 30, 60, or 90 minutes at a time was associated with the highest risk of death. Sitting for less than 30 minutes at a time was associated with a lower risk. So, while a sedentary lifestyle is always bad, at least getting up every 30 minutes and moving around can be helpful.
