Fitness Journalist Says People Listening To Old News, Bad Science Before Dieting

By John Ostapkovich

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Working to stay fit sucks up a lot of people’s time, often with little to show for it, but a fitness journalist says, too often, we’re listening to old news or bad science.

Diets and workouts are a dime a dozen; some based on dubious claims. That’s the thought that spurred Adam Bornstein and John Romaniello to track down the common denominators in men’s health.

The villain: Hormones and the key to managing them is, in fact, what you eat, but largely not when.

“Some people don’t like eating breakfast and we show, through science, how breakfast is not necessarily the most important meal of the day. In fact, no meal is more important than one another. What’s most important is the food you eat during the course of the day, not when you eat it,” says Bornstein.

He says much of what their book, Man 2.0, Engineering the Alpha, has to say for men also works for women.

He figures the biggest hurdle for most people may be intermittent fasting, to counter the trend of eating for too many hours of the day.
