It's Work to Keep Flab Off: Study PDF Print E-mail

Women need hour of exercise daily

Chicago - Rev up the treadmill:  Sobering new research spells out just how much exercise women need to keep the flab off as they age - and it’s a lot.

At least an hour of moderate activity a day is needed for older women at a healthy weight who aren’t dieting.  For those who are already overweight - and that’s most American women- even more exercise is called for to avoid gaining weight without eating less, the study results suggest.

Brisk walking, leisurely bicycling and golfing are all examples of moderate exercise  But don’t throw in the towel if you can’t do those things for at least an hour a day.  Even a little exercise is good for your health even if it won’t make you thin, the researchers said.

The study appears in Wednesday’s Journal of the American Medical Association.  Only women were studied so the researchers from Harvard’s Brigham and Women Hospital said it’s uncertain whether the results would apply to men.

The results bolster a 2002 Institute of Medicine report that emphasized the importance of balancing diet and exercise and recommended at least 60 minutes daily of moderate activity for adults and children.
