Exercise: your best bet for health
You know that exercise is important. It lowers blood pressure and cholesterol and reduces risk for al major diseases: heart disease, diabetes and cancer. It helps in conquering depression and anxiety, it keeps your bones healthy and of course it keeps your weight down.
A recent study found yet another reason why exercise is important. The researchers divided 33 obese women with type 2 diabetes in three groups:
- A restricted calorie diet high in monounsaturated fat
- Diet and exercise
After fourteen weeks only the women in the exercise groups had lost visceral fat (deep belly fat): the most dangerous fat. Diet alone did burn abdominal fat, but in order to lose visceral fat, exercise was necessary.
The conclusion is clear: go exercise! Find something you like, so that you stick with it.
