“Irresponsible” Time Magazine Article

A LetsRun.com thread popped up recently pointing to this “irresponsible” article from Time Magazine. Here’s the thread.

I do agree that this article is largely irresponsible. Basically, it points to people that exercise and subsequently eat too much thinking that they’ve “earned it”; the article is saying that these people gain weight, thus exercise makes people gain weight. Yes, sure, that does happen. But I think that is a gross oversimplification of the exercise/weight issue. There are so many factors (genetics, efficiency, previous experience, diet) that you can’t simply make that sort of deduction. Anyway, check it out and let me know what you think!
