Rich’s Three for Thursday – Great Health Reads

young pitcher exercises baudry therapyHere’s one for all of those little league parents, and young throwers. This article talks about some of the facts and myths about throwing injuries.

I also thought this article from the NY Times gave a great account of the latest science behind diets and weight loss. Give it a look and I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s more than just counting calories.

And if you’ve ever wished for a great resource to help you make better diet decisions for you and your family… I think you’ll like ChooseMyPlate — from the USDA… it’s full of helpful diet tips, suggestions and interactive tools.

But as an nutritionist will tell you, diet is only half the battle. You have to combine a good diet with a good exercise program. Everyone’s needs for exercise are not the same, nor are all exercises equal. So I think you’ll find this link from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) helpful.

And that concludes this week’s edition of Three for Thursday. As I said last week, this is a new series here, and I’d love to hear what you think about it, ways to make it more valuable to you or maybe just your thoughts on today’s posts.
