Skipping breakfast, a common habit among teenagers, associates directly with increased waist circumference and body mass index in this age group. The habit can lead to an unbalanced diet and other unhealthy behaviors, potentially making the adolescents vu
But read the comments:

"But this finding proves nothing.

It is based on two papers that are based on questionnaires to determine what the kids ate during a day and how much they exercise.

Even in an ideal world where we write down food as we eat, we still mess up. Now imagine answering a questionnaire weekly about what you ate while you are a teen or the parent of a teen. Additionally, teens that aren't skipping breakfast might have rigorous parental controls and come from higher income families which leads to healthier eating patterns as a whole. Kids from poorer families tend to skip breakfast and have a poorer understanding of the bodies nutritional needs as they eat what they get.

There are way too many variables in these types of studies that they are never reliable for more than forming a hint of a hypothesis.

No matter what the finding is it is inconclusive at best until they are able to do a clinical trial, which they won't do as they wouldn't be able to replicate their own results using the exact participants."

More great discussion in the comments.

Being able to see green spaces from your home is associated with reduced cravings for alcohol, cigarettes and harmful foods. It's the first study to demonstrate that passive exposure to nearby greenspace is linked to both lower frequencies and strengths o
And then there's this comment:

"This is typical environmental psychology. Associtations only. Did you know that people who have plenty of green areas around and near their house live longer and are happier? One confounder thats always present is the fact that people who live near green areas almost always are more well off than the control group being able to live in a not so crowded area."

"Strength training in a gym and doing bodyweight exercises seemed to confer roughly equivalent benefits. So you don’t necessarily need to heave around large quantities of iron."

I'm an obesity doctor. I've seen long-term weight loss work. Here's how. - Vox
I'm all for people being happy, so that's a positive from this article.

But I do think that we need to go deeper and examine the lifestyles we're living. We simply weren't meant to drive everywhere, sit for hours at a time, get home watch Netflix on a sofa, buy and eat processed food, etc.

As with anything, I think we have to examine the system we're living in and find ways to buck the system... Can I bike to work? Can I squat at my desk? Can I talk walking meetings? Can I cook my food? Can I spend time with family running around a park instead of sitting on a couch?

Shoespiracy - Full Edit (Vivobarefoot mini-documentary)
This is an 8 minute documentary produced by Vivobarefoot.

In terms of marketing, I hear the docu-series format (like Money Revealed) is as effective as VSLs were in 2006 right now (2019), so we should look into this for SFP.
