As many of you probably know, when I am not working in the lab or posting here at Obesity Panacea I am also a content editor at ResearchBlogging.org. Each weekday a different Research Blogging editor selects their favourite posts from the past week in their area of expertise, and you can find my favourite posts on Health and Clinical Research here every Wednesday. Since there are always great Health-related posts on Research Blogging that don't necessarily overlap with obesity/fitness/nutrition, I don't usually cross-post my Research Blogging selections here on Obesity Panacea. But this week there was a wealth of terrific nutrition and obesity-related content, so I have decided to cross-post my selections here.
As an aside, if you're blogging about peer-reviewed research, you really should consider signing up for Research Blogging. All of their posts are advertised in the ScienceBlogs sidebar, which can result in a very solid boost in visitors (the first time we ever used the service our readership roughly doubled!). It has been tremendously helpful in promoting our own blog, as well as helping us connect with other bloggers in our area. To sign-up your own site, click here.
Research Blogging is indeed great for traffic, but getting linked here always gets me the biggest boost. Thanks!
