While I happen to be a fan of fitness for the past 20 years or so and have put on some muscle, the goal is not quite about bodybuilding for me.
Still, there is some great information in this relatively long read.
If your goal is to lose weight, putting on muscle will build your metabolism (about an extra 50 calories per day for every pound of muscle gain). Sounds like nothing, but 5 pounds would mean 250 calories per day, even while sitting in traffic, sleeping, reading a magazine, etc.
If you want to just look better, again you can find some great information and advice.
If you just like some relatively entertaining reading, the article is worth it. Trust me, not a heavy lift.

A recent report from the folks at STAT News indicates that a new version of speed hit the pharmaceutical market last week called Adzenys, a chewable, fruit-flavored drug designed with the same active ingredient as other popular ADHD medications, such as Adderall. The drug, which is essentially extended release gummy meth, was approved earlier this year by the Food and Drug Administration for patients as young as six years old.

If you've ever shared a meal with me, my half of it was likely a cheeseburger, burned to a crisp. I've always loved the taste, the texture, the smell of excessively charred bovine flesh. Of course I know that it's bad for me, something that tastes so good couldn't possibly have any other redeeming qualities or it would upset the balance of the universe.
Turns out, tho, it's not just bad for me, it's really really really bad for me. Really. Pass the A1.

So you never heard of Quercetin, have you? Though available in many of the foods you eat, you can also take it as a supplement.
So who did the studies and how does it work? Funny you should ask, I just happen to have this handy from my friend who is a teaching registered nurse.
According to the Wikipedia enrty, Quercetin is a flavonol found in many fruits, vegetables, leaves and grains. It can be used as an ingredient in supplements, beverages, or foods.

After more than 40 years of medicine telling you to lower your cholesterol by eating less of it, it turns out they're all wrong.
"Sure", you say, "that's only one article". No, major newspapers are reporting the same. The real problem is high blood glucose and low fiber intake.
Go ahead. Enjoy a cheese omelet with a big T-bone steak on the side.

Juice fasts, raw foods cleansing, water-only detox ó youíve probably tried them all by now. Fads like these promise to leave you feeling rejuvenated, but their effectiveness is uncertain at best. Thatís why more and more nutritionists swear by a proven, deceptively simple approach to wellness: a seven-day-long dietary cleanse in which you eat nothing but chili dogs.

Few things are more comforting in life than a mug of hot cocoa. But that was not the case in Vicenza, Italy, where hot chocolate made by a 77-year-old grandmother sent three children and two adults to the emergency room. The likely cause? The packets of hot chocolate she used had expired in 1990.

Scientists have successfully grown penises in a laboratory and say they could be tested on humans within five years. The organs would be used to help men who have suffered a serious injury to the region, had surgery for cancer or are suffering from a congenital abnormality.

"After we did those experiments, the definition of 'dead' changed," says Rhee. "Every day at work I declare people dead. They have no signs of life, no heartbeat, no brain activity. I sign a piece of paper knowing in my heart that they are not actually dead. I could, right then and there, suspend them. But I have to put them in a body bag. It's frustrating to know there's a solution."
We are truly living in the future.
