I’m a science writer, not a top-notch runner or a fitness/nutrition expert. The advice you see here is based on my reading of peer-reviewed literature and the advice of experts. In addition, I’m bringing several consulting experts on board to point me to the latest research and let me know when I make a mistake.
Travis Saunders is a certified exercise physiologist who studies the relationship between sedentary time and the risk of chronic disease. He is the coauthor of the award-winning blog Obesity Panacea and a competitive runner who has run marathons in the 2:40s. He has served as health editor for ResearchBlogging.org and also cofounded The Science of Blogging.
In the upcoming weeks I’ll be bringing in several more consulting experts. I also encourage contributions and suggestions from readers, either in the comments, or by email.
