Nutrition science is a young science. Over the course of the last hundred years, every major nutrient has been vilified both by scientists and public opinion.
In my own short life, Ive seen fat and carbohydrates take significant hits. You wont be surprised to learn that before the anti-fat craze of the 70s and 80s, popular nutrition science was anti-protein.
It all began with John Harvey Kellogg, the man behind Kelloggs breakfast cereals. He was a surgeon and chief medical officer of Battle Creek Sanitarium.
So, what comes to mind when one talks of winter?
Apart from the holiday shopping, snowflakes and time spent with your twisted family, its also a tough time for those take exercise seriously.
Trust me, youll need to put in twice the effort to break into a sweat especially in the latter months of the year when during the summer months, all you will need to do is move a limb or two for a few minutes before you could fill a bucket with the amount of sweat that bursts through your pores.
And as much as youd like to stay indoors, thanks to the cold, or because youre snuggled up with your bitter half (wife), better half (girlfriend) or even someone new, its still best to get outside for a little fresh air and exercise.
Why Winter Exercise is Important
In a recent study conducted among 5000 participants, almost 30% of them said they did not exercise during the winter months.

NEW YORK After setting off a storm of criticism from abortion rights groups upset that a Democratic president had sided with social conservatives, the Obama administration said it will comply with a judge’s order to allow girls of any age to buy emergency contraception without prescriptions.
But in doing so, at least one opponent of easy access to the contraception thinks the president is buckling to political pressure, rather than making the health of girls a priority.
The Justice Department notified U.S. District Judge Edward Korman on Monday that it will submit a plan for compliance.
