10 New Don’t-Miss Pieces We Published This Fall
By JESS BARRON
The LIVESTRONG.COM editors and I read a large amount of health and fitness pieces every week. Many are blog posts, feature articles and slideshows submitted by our staff writers. And, then let’s not forget all the great studies and articles out there on other publications and websites. It’s essential that we stay up-to-date on all new studies and articles being published in the world of health and fitness.
After we publish the pieces here on LIVESTRONG.COM, we read the comments that our site members are posting at the bottom of our articles in order to respond to questions (when we have answers) and to find out about the comments, thoughts and experiences you as an audience want to share with us.
Here are 10 of the best pieces we published on the site last week:
