Regular Guy Reads of the Week: April 17th

It's been a wacky week. Sorry this is a little late and a little thin. I definitely put a lot of time into the You Gotta Put In the Work post, so I haven't had as much time to compile links. But here's what I have.

Losing Fat Without Macro Counting - 10 Simple Strategies: Some interesting and, in my opinion, scientifically sound advice that cuts against a lot of current thinking.

Stop Thinking Personal Training Is Black and White: This is directed at professionals, but there's some really good advice along the lines of "do what works for you." For example, don't worry so much about free weights vs. machines.

From 1879 to Today, Nothing Has Changed: Ignore all the trends in health, diet and fitness. The challenge today is the same as a century and a half ago: getting people motivated.

The Real Worldwide Epidemic Is Not Obesity: This one is a little dense, but there's a really good message here: The goal shouldn't be solely to lose fat -- though that's a good goal -- but to gain muscle.

61 Ways to Lose Weight: You probably do a lot of these already, but there are some good little hacks in here.

The Right Dose of Exercise for a Longer Life: A good recap of the new studies debunking the BS "too much exercise will kill you" studies.
