The following excerpts from “Huff Post Green:”

A powerful winter storm system moving through the central United States could bring up to a foot of snow to areas of the Plains and reach as far east as the Ohio Valley, according to the National Weather Service.

The Weather Channel has named the system winter storm “Q,” apparently after the New York City subway line, according to The New York Times. But as whimsical as the name might be, authorities aren’t taking winter storm Q lightly.

You figured out ways to soldier on with regularly scheduled sweat sessions despite a recent weather pattern that screams at you to surrender to the security of your most comfortable blanket.

You stick to your diet and remain ever mindful of what you eat; but somehow the weight loss just isn’t going as planned.

According to a new study published today in the International Journal of Obesity, when it comes to losing weight, the time you eat can have as much of an effect as what you eat. (Original article appears here.)

“We should start to consider meal timing in addition to calories and meal composition when thinking about weight loss.”
