Fatty Foods Traumatize Rats

Scientists put rodents on a high-fat diet of bad foods, and the outcome is what we expect. After nine days of gluttony on fatty foods, the rats became overly sluggish and lost cognitive abilities.

Eliminate Belly Fat with Sit Ups

Forget it! You will not be losing any belly fat with just sit ups.

If this was remotely possible, all you would see it on The Biggest Loser would be contestants doing sit ups non-stop and plenty of product placements for As-Seen-on-TV abdominal machine gimmicks for $49.95

Sit ups will however help you develop muscle under the layers of fat (if you happen to be overweight).

Your goal however should be to lose overall body weight, and fat deposit with total body workouts.
