When you have to choose between staying at home to use your Xbox and heading out for a gym workout, we know how hard it is for gadget heads like you to unplug. Let us read full story
Here at DailyBurn, when we’re not building cool things, working out, or cooking up something healthy and strange in the kitchen, we’re reading our favorite blogs! Today, we bring you 10 of our favorite health and fitness blogs that may be under the radar for some of you. Check them out:
Hyperlipid is a blog written by Petro Dobromylskyj, a vet, trained at the RVC, London University. His list of academic credentials is impressive, and his writing is a thoughtful analysis of the science behind nutrition, specifically low carb diets. His analysis of scientific studies with accompanying charts is a great addition to the low carb conversation. In a sea of shallow writing about why low carb eating is best, it’s refreshing to find a blog that nutrition buffs can geek out with.
Todd is a primal kinda guy with a mission: to get you to get real about food and exercise. His recipes are tasty and cost effective (he lists the price per serving for most recipes) and he breaks down the nutrition for each recipe too. He is building a robust community of primal enthusiasts, so make sure to check out his community lists. Plus, yesterday was his birthday, so stop by his blog and wish him a happy belated from us.
Ben Does Life
Ben’s story goes like this: “On Christmas Day, 2008, I made a promise to my grandmother to get a grip on my obesity, my depression, and my life. I’ve lost 120 pounds, run marathons, and finished an Ironman.” Ben is courageous and his blog is a refreshingly simple peek into the life of a man living life to the fullest. Check it out for a daily dose of inspiration.
The New Polymath
Written by performance coach Isaac Wilkins, The New Polymath is a place where a man can be a true man. According to Isaac:
“My clients are a huge priority to me and their success is my success. I have so much to thank them for as while I’ve taught them a lot about strength training and changing their bodies, they’ve taught me far more about people and life. However, all work and no play makes for a boring guy. This blog actually came about because I feel that today’s man is spending too much time as a specialized wage-slave and not living the life that he wants and maximizing his potential. I personally pursue a variety of hobbies from reading and writing (obviously) to gardening, powerlifting/strongman training, and going to rock shows. There’s nothing worse than asking someone “What do you do?” and have them say “I’m a
”, and after further questioning that’s still all they can come up with as their identity. That’s not a man, that’s an insect. A soft, weak insect. I don’t have room for them here.”

Peanut Butter Fingers
Julie is a writer from Florida with a huge love of, well besides health and fitness, fashion. Check out her fashion page. We love Julie’s lifestyle blog because she seems like someone who can smile her way through even the toughest of workouts.
Miz Fit Online
Miz Fit is Carla Birnberg from Austin, TX. She has appeared in Women’s Day, Experience Life, ivillage.com, Glamour, Women’s Health, Fitness, Yahoo!, Yahoo!Shine, Yahoo!’s YourWisdom, and Runners World. She’s also a prolific vlogger.

Fit Bottomed Girls
These girls have got it going on in a big way. This blog is a one stop shop for inspiration, motivation, product reviews, and fit tips.
Green Lite Bites
This is just one of Roni Noone’s sites within her growing blog empire. This is my favorite of Roni’s blogs because she posts weekly healthy recipes with amazing images and easy to follow directions. She also allows you to search recipes by ingredient, so you will always find a way to use the random contents of your refrigerator.
Kia is a new mom “who is not new to green or healthy living. I got through 3 yrs of a PhD program in biology while training for distance events when a car came through an intersection and interrupted my 5-year plan. Now I am rebuilding, taking my hubby and infant along for a new ride.” Her blog is a must read for moms who want to live a conscious life full of joy. Bonus – she’s a yoga teacher too! If you live in Colorado, you can look her up and take one of her classes.
Let Them Eat Meat
Rhys Southan is an ex-vegan who writes about veganism. His blog is easy to read and incredibly thoughtful. His musings on veganism and nutrition read like food philosophy. Rather than stuffing his blog full of links to thought leaders to support his case, he is the thought leader in a space that many find hard to touch: arguing against veganism in a compelling and ethically sound way.
