    Haha, the problem with HIIT workouts is I hate them! Also, black tea, duh.

  2. Justine says:

    I suspect HIIT would also result in a lot more injuries than moderate intensity exercise (kind of related to how people are injuring themselves in spin classes in that article you linked- every spin class I attended followed a HIIT rhythm.)

    • MikeT says:

      I actually find the opposite. Longer lower intensity workouts (e.g jogging,cycling) seem to put more wear and tear on my body. My body also responds much better to HIIT type workouts. Caveat is t hat I have to give myself sufficient time to recover.

      • Justine says:

        Ah, I stand corrected then. I probably underestimated the length of time some people spend doing moderate intensity cardio (personally, I never run or do other forms of cardio for more than 30 minutes.)

    Wow, that France ban is amazing! <3 <3 <3
    How are we going to achieve Zero waste to the Bay by 2020 (that's the goal) without common sense ban on pointless trash?

  4. Natalie says:

    I always knew deep down that black tea was good for you, but never realized it could be a superfood. My grandmother always drinks three or four cups every day and she’s a healthy and happy 104… so it can’t be bad!
