Why Exercise Is More Important Than Weight Loss for a Longer Life5

People typically lower their risks of heart disease and premature death far more by gaining fitness than by dropping weight.

For better health and a longer life span, exercise is more important than weight loss, especially if you are overweight or obese, according to an interesting new review of the relationships between fitness, weight, heart health and longevity.

The study, which analyzed the results of hundreds of previous studies of weight loss and workouts in men and women, found that obese people typically lower their risks of heart disease and premature death far more by gaining fitness than by dropping weight or dieting.

The review adds to mounting evidence that most of us can be healthy at any weight, if we are also active enough.

My 2 cents opinion: When you excercise you are more aware of your diet, I do not want to waste my time sweating to see that my weight is not what I expect. Both diet and excercise are intrinsically connected.

Mi opinión: Cuando haces ejercicio eres más consciente de tu dieta, no quiero perder el tiempo sudando para ver que mi peso no es el que esperaba. Tanto la dieta como el ejercicio están intrínsecamente conectados.
