Welcome to Friday’s For The Love of Food, Summer Tomato’s weekly link roundup. 

This week skipping workouts decreases brain circulation, the FDA considers what’s “healthy,” and nuts have fewer calories than thought.

      I always read your roundups and love them. I have to say, this Fitbit study is flawed, I think. They should have measured using a tracking device vs. not tracking. Instead they measured it compared with people logging their own exercise. It’s not surprising at all to me that people who logged their own exercise lost more weight than those who let the device do it for them. Because logging your own activity requires more active thought and participation than letting device do it. But I bet people who didn’t track either way would lose the least weight.

    Thanks for sharing these links! I’m really psyched about the news on walnuts and almonds getting a calorie cut. If the old method of counting calories isn’t that reliable, then perhaps other healthy foods aren’t such big calorie bombs after all. Of course, it could also be the other way, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed I can eat more dark chocolate. 😉

    I love all of these links. I am a firm believer that exercise is amazing for your brain! And that’s awesome about the nuts, I always keep a stash in my purse!
