No need to wait until middle age to go on an exercise program to control weight then, according to a recent study.

According to a report working out in the present can reduce weight gain in the future, in middle age.

Researchers followed 3,554 people age 18-30  over 2 decades and found that physical activity over the years can prevent  weight gain in middle age.

  1. Men gained  6 pounds less than those  who were not highly active.
  2. Women gained 13 pounds less
  3. Waistlines were  trimmer

In the study highly active was equivalent to 2 & 1/2 hours per week of heart pumping exercise such as:  sports, brisk walking or even gardening.

The findings support the no-quick- fix method of weight control to promote health and prevent disease.

These findings should motivate people to make long-term commitments to weight management and not give up.

This self- developed weight  loss plan encourages the individual to remain committed long- term without the  financial costs.
