Fibion.com-Aaro’s Journey – From the USA to Everyday Exercise
Aaro’s #Journey – From the USA to #Everyday #Exercise

In September I moved from Washington State in the USA where I lived for 26 years, to Jyväskylä in order to study. In America I drive a lot, as many do. I drove approximately 250 km a week - the drive to school was 25km, the gym 4km and the grocery store 2km. My hobbies included running and mountain biking,...

The #Motorized #Commute – Sedentary Kilometers

While the decrease in daily energy expenditure in our working environments can explain, in part, the obesity epidemic, the other parts of our daily life are not without blame. At work we sit and move primarily just our fingers, so maybe it is a good idea to increase our daily energy expenditure via our daily commute. Unfortunately, during the last 35...

Our Work Days as Caged Monkeys (Part 2) – Changing times

In the 1960s almost half of jobs required moderate physical activity. Nowadays, only 20% of jobs require at least moderate physical activity. It is no surprise that four out of five Finns does their work sitting in front of a screen. These days, making the grade at work is about being smart and less about having endurance, strength and skills. Here...

The Energy Hamburger (Part 2) – You Don’t Need to #Workout

Expending energy includes a lot more than just recreational exercise. We can do shoulder shrugs for other reasons than to simply indicate our lack of knowledge. In other words, we can exercise every day. Researchers in the USA asked approximately 10000 people what they do during a 24 hour period. Subjects reported all of their activity from driving in the car to...

The Energy Hamburger (Part 1) – #Exercise More, #Eat Less, Still #Fat?

Let’s examine the energy equation from the perspective of spending energy. As I told you before, the number of adults participating in recreational physical activity is larger than ever before. According to questionnaires used in studies the number of adults that participate in recreational physical activity at least twice per week has increased from approximately 40% to 70% in the...

The Business of Wellness (Part 2) – Commercial Solutions

In the USA over 6 billion dollars a year are spent on diet foods. Close to a billion cans of low calorie “diet sodas” were sold in 2010 alone. In Finland, we are following this trend. Up to half of Finns have stated that they are trying to lose weight, and one fifth of Finns are using some sort of...

The Wellness Paradox – Losing Weight is Easy?

Losing weight is annoyingly easy:  Consume less energy than you expend or expend more energy than you consume. Move more, eat smaller serving sizes and enjoy the results! As I said before, the struggle with this elementary school level mathematics problem is actually of astronomical proportions. Unfortunately, the current solutions to this epidemic are not working. Is the fight of the wellness industry against...

Energy Crisis (Part 4) – It is not just about #overweight/#obesity

Overweight is no longer a valued ideal but a prevailing condition. Ideals have changed. The worshiping of a round belly has given way to a craving to lose weight and be thin. These changes have made overweight a favorite topic in the health and wellness sector and an extremely important part of health marketing. People want to lose weight. Thankfully,...

Fibion.com-Energy Crisis (Part 3) – Why are we getting fat
Energy Crisis (Part 3) – Why are we getting fat?

Basically, weight gain is the result of an imbalance between energy consumption and energy expenditure. This balance is partly regulated by our genetics, our environment, and psychosocial factors. One, or many of these factors, has gotten members of our society to consume more than we expend, or to expend less than we consume. At the same time we have noticed...
