Exercise is Good, But not for Weight Loss

The old myth that you can exercise your way out of excess fat has finally bit the dust since you would have to run like a demon all day to burn off a cheeseburger. For example, all things being equal, if you are lean, a runner or any do any serious form of exercise regularly–especially if you are female–and continue the same eating habits, most people will begin to gain weight with age doing nothing different but getting older. That said, we still need exercise for strong bones, a sharp brain, and over all better physical health. So get out and walk, do some weights 1-2 times a week, do any exercise you like, and you most likely will want to be more thoughtful about the food you eat– and you might get a little help on the weight front, after all.
