kindle has a tts feature that lets you listen to the book you're reading. Pretty handy for the treadmill.

comment What are the nutritional benefits of saturated fats?
I'm going with this answer, it appears to be the best cited from a variety of sources. This is somewhat of a judgement call as I'm not expert enough to really know which solution works best.

comment Reading while doing cardio.
btw, I recommend the text-to-speech feature on kindle with the text size turned up. You basically have someone reading to you over headphones and you can follow the text too if you like.

@Ivo, fats from dairy, meat, bacon, eggs. I just want to eat my bacon and feel like I'm helping my body in some way :)

comment Exercises/diet to improve circulation to extremities? (ie for warmth)

thanks, I already exercise regularly. However the other tips are useful. Do you have a citation where I could go read more about the herbal/dietary means?

comment How to run without damaging your feet, knees or hips.
#3 depends on the distance being run. Short runs I wouldn't worry about it. You can sometimes do more damage eating right before a run.
