Eat less; move more; live longer is the mantra of this blog. Turns out that the move more part covers a multitude of sins.
I ran across this quote on WebMD “Exercise has consistently been linked to improved vigor and overall quality of life,” says Kerry J. Stewart, professor of medicine and director of clinical and research exercise physiology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. “People who become active have a greater sense of self-confidence. But exercise also improves the working efficiency of your heart, lungs, and muscles,” Stewart says. “That’s the equivalent of improving the fuel efficiency of a car. It gives you more energy for any kind of activity.”
It doesn’t get any better or clearer than that. I feel strongly that exercise is not optional in our daily life. (Check out my post Is Exercise Optional for Losing Weight?)
The sooner you integrate regular exercise into your daily life, the better off you will be. Remember, movement is exercise, walking, running, dancing, climbing stairs. You don’t have to go to the health club if that turns you off. Just get those limbs moving and you will be on your way to better health and lower weight.
Eat less; move more; live longer.
