Posted January 20, 2011
Are you looking for ways to eat better this year? Maybe you want to lose weight, eat healthier, or just find some new recipes. GALILEO has several resources to help you do that.
Take a look at the Diet and Nutrition section of GALILEO. You can search several databases at once to save time, or you can go to the Articles and Databases tab to search databases like Consumer Health Complete or MasterFILE Premier for topics such as diet, weight loss, cooking, nutrition, or recipes.
Remember that you can set up a search alert in the individual databases so that you receive emails when a new article matching your search is added. Or, if there is a particular magazine you love or if you want to keep up with nutrition magazines, such as Better Nutrition or Environmental Nutrition, you can set up a journal alert to receive emails when new issues are added.

Getting Fit in the New Year
USA.gov provides a list of popular resolutions for the new year, and one of the top resolutions is getting fit. Let’s take a look at some resources in GALILEO that can help someone keep this resolution.
GALILEO offers access to the full text of several popular fitness magazines, such as Men’s Fitness, Running and FitNews, and Shape, and it also includes some publications for those more serious about exercise, such as American Fitness, Bicycling, Joe Weidner’s Muscle and Fitness, and Runner’s World. Just go to Magazines A-Z to search for these or magazines that you like. If you want to know when a new issue is added, you can set up a journal alert.
In addition to the magazines, you can find many more articles, fact sheets, and more in several databases, such as Consumer Health Complete or MasterFILE Premier. Just search “physical fitness” or “exercise” in these or other databases listed in the Exercise subject area of GALILEO. If you have a particular topic that you like, you can set up a search alert so that you will receive emails when an article about your topic is added.
