You know all those annoying Europeans who love to tell you about how fat and unhealthy Americans are? A new study suggest…
Looking forward to your summer? Well, we certainly don't want you dwelling on your health while having a great time. We'd especially hate for you to think about how there are rare diseases that stalk guys just around your age. You probably shouldn't even know about the awful things that could already be fermenting within your DNA. You know what? Forget we brought it up--or read on, if you dare...
If you’ve been eating right and putting the work in, you should be getting results by now. Need proof? Bam! Not bad…
What’s up, COED Nation!? My name is Mike Simone and I’ve been working with COED contributor Charlie Roman…
When I saw that Reddit made a guide to fitness, I was pretty sure it was just going to be a bunch of 'motivational photos' to help you work out those forearms - I was wrong. In fact, this infographic is the brainchild of Reddit Fitness (Fittit) and the users all left some pretty helpful advice on how you can get started on that New Year's resolution. Of course, you're going to need to do more than read an infographic on the internet but even the Arnold needed to start somewhere.
Trojan released its annual report on sexual health today and we got our hands on this infographic displaying the nation's most and least sexually healthy colleges. Here's a fun fact: when I worked at Playboy, we hit up the University of Maryland, University of Miami, and FSU for the Girls of the ACC tour. We had a condom sponsor (NOT Trojan) that tried to give away free rubbers. More than half the kids (girls AND guys) turned them down. They were like, "Nah, I'm good. I don't use condoms". I hurt my jaw it dropped so quickly. Anyway, check out the rundown then vote in our poll after the jump.
Broke ass college dudes can live off protein shakes and power bars in lieu of meals, especially in the post-spring break "Damn I'm fat” gym-heading season. But can these cheap ass meals-in-a-bar actually replace real food? Some say yes, as the lack of moisture can keep packed goods from decaying and the powdered form is more easily broken down. Others say you miss the grit from the real source. We have Registered Dietitian Rachel Tobin, M.S., R.D. whey in on the matter. Check out the good, the bad, and the ugly after the jump.

We're not saying it's not tough - it is tough - very tough! But adopting even one of these life changing resolutions will make January 1 the first day of the rest of your life.
I love it when Newsweek lets its hair down and talks about the benefits of sex. You dirty, filthy magazine...ahem. In an age where student/teacher sex scandals pop up as often as the teen boners inspiring them, it's no surprise that being sexually frustrated is frequently pinned as one of the main reasons kids today get tense, irritable and violent - just like adults not getting any! An orgasm (from sex) a day will keep the anti-social behavior away.
The world is a dangerous place. Ever day thousands of people are killed by car wrecks, war, earthquakes, tsunamis, and boring celebrity gossip shows. But there are also plenty of things that we do every day that put us at risk or nudge us just slightly closer to death. And in case you weren't aware, we will help educate you on the shit you do every day that's gonna kill you, so hopefully you will stop doing it, and continue to come back to COED.

You've just finished a hot, clean shave and are ready to get dressed for the big event. You may have a hot date, a wedding, or maybe even a potential life-changing job interview. But there's a problem: you have a cut on your face from shaving and don't know what to do. And not only that, you also want to make a positive lasting impression, but don't know what cologne to wear.
The Situation announced that he's writing a self-help fitness book that will help beer-bellied men across America look just like him. It's pretty generous considering they've already taught us so many life lessons. While we're eagerly anticipating the book that is sure to change our life, we're ready to get started now on getting a ripped body. Because it's not that hard to use weights or even to get a rock-hard body without stepping a foot into a traditional gym.
Now that summertime is here, guys everywhere are hitting the gym to get ripped for the beach. Of the many beach muscles guys train, the six-pack is one of the most sought-after fitness goals...and one of the hardest to achieve. Before you start crunching away to create your own "Situation," read this blog to make sure you do it right and don't waste your time on silly gimmicks and commercials.
Forget gaining the dreaded freshman 15. These students took it to the next level by turning their dining hall meals into an cholesterol-level-raising race to see who could get a heart attack first. Guess they're lucky that sweats are all the rage in college because there's no way that they're fitting into anything that doesn't involve an elastic waistband.
Normally we don't report on things like medical advances here at COED, but this was just a bit too SciFi awesome for me to pass up. Scientists have created contact lenses cultured from stems cell that have successfully cured blindness in patients in less than a month.
New high-tech research from Nottingham Trent University claims that playing video games has the potential to become part of a beneficial daily physical exercise regime. Which is reassuring, if hardly news for anyone who's been dabbling in the more vigorous side of video-gaming in recent years. Here's five of the best that just might make you tone up...
