Does vitamin C help people recover from sickness?

Possibly, but it probably doesn’t help very much, according to several scientific studies. A 2004 review from Australian National University found that a "routine mega-dose [of vitamin C to prevent disease] is not rationally justified for community use," though the authors noted that vitamin C supplements could help people who have overexerted themselves physically and for individuals who spend significant time in cold environments. The authors revisited their research in 2013, but their conclusions didn't change. Some...

How can you get control of your diet and stop overeating?

Having a plan and a good shopping list will help. A balanced diet will leave you less hungry for snacks later. If you do get hungry, eat unprocessed foods (a half cup) of almonds, yogurt, an apple or something of that sort. Avoid daily intake of soda, chips, cookies, ice cream and the like: remove them from your home. A pitfall for me was food at work that people brought in: avoid this at all costs. ...

After my body adjusted to the new plumbing situation (this took about 3 months) and with the help of Loperamide I have got back to a healthy weight. ...

Do rest days help your overall workouts and fat burning?

Yes, they do. Think of it this way: you do not grow muscle in the gym. What you do in the gym should stimulate muscle growth outside the gym, which means that recovery is as important as exercise. Exercise is like medicine: too little is not effective and too much is counter-productive. In both, it's important to get enough without getting too much. It's best to do both cardio and weight (strength) training for fat loss. Cardio will burn extra energy during and...

Why are people who do exercise usually healthier than those who dont?

People who exercise are more healthy because they keep active. They strain their bodies properly to increase muscle. When doing an exercise that increases your heart rate it works your heart(which is a muscle) and makes it stronger. Having a strong heart means you have less chances of heart failure or other casualties. Working your muscles also release hormones that make you happier and help you keep focus (which can help you on tests). The more you workout the more the hormones...
