    EXERCISE

    Smokers and ex-smokers who exercise reduce risk of death by 30%

    Ex-smokers who exercise were 30% less likely to have died over some number of years compared to ex-smokers who do not exercise according to an analysis of self-reported exercise and smoking in 106,341 adults in the Health Survey for England and the Scottish Health Survey.

    The risk of dying from cardiovascular disease was 29% lower in ex-smokers who exercised versus those who do not.

    The risk of dying from cancer was 34% lower in ex-smokers who exercised versus those who do not.

    Similar results were found in smokers who exercised versus smokers who do not.

    The risk of dying over some number of years was 31% lower in smokers who exercise versus smokers who do not.

    EXERCISE & HEART DISEASE

    People who exercise vigorously are 88% less likely to die from heart disease over the next 15 years

    People who engage in vigorous recreational physical activity—exercise which made them breath harder or puff or pant—are 84% less likely to suffer cardiovascular disease (CVD) and are 88% less likely to die from coronary heart disease over the next 15 years compared to people who engage in a low amount of recreational physical activity—exercise which did not cause them to breath harder—according to a recent study from Australia.

    After adjusting for the Framingham Risk Score (measures of blood pressure, cholesterol, etc) and central obesity (belly fat), people who engage in vigorous recreational physical activity were 65% less likely to have died from cardiovascular disease than people with a low level of activity.

    Walking 30-60 minutes per day associated with 11% lower risk of stroke

    Men who walked 30- 60 minutes per day (3-7 hours per week) had an 11% lower risk of stroke over the next 11 years compared to men who walked 0-30 minutes a day (0-3 hours per week) according to a new study.

    “Time spent walking was associated with reduced risk of onset of stroke in dose-response fashion, independent of walking pace,” the authors of the study concluded. “Walking could form an important part of stroke-prevention strategies in older people.”

    BOOK - WHY WE GET FAT

    The idea that we can eat less or exercise more without affecting appetite & energy is wrong, Taubes

    The belief that we can eat less without it affecting our energy levels, or exercise more without it affecting our appetite, is wrong notes Gary Taubes in his excellent book Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It.

    "The very notion that expending more energy than we take in -- eating less and exercising more -- can cure us of our weight problem, make us permanently leaner and lighter, is based on yet another assumption about the laws of thermodynamics that happens to be incorrect," Taubes writes.

    BOOK - WHY WE GET FAT

    When we eat less, we get hungry and move less, and metabolism slows down, notes Gary Taubes

    "If we restrict the amount of food an animal can eat..., not only does it get hungry, but it actually expends less energy. Its metabolic rate slows down. Its cells burn less energy (because they have less energy to burn). And when it gets a chance to eat as much as it wants, it gains the weight right back," Gary Taubes writes in his excellent book Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It.

    "The same is true for humans."

    "Eventually, our bodies compensate."

    Therefore, as Taubes points out, the advice we have been given by health experts, that losing weight is simply a matter of diet and exercise, ignores this fact, and can only lead to temporary weight loss. Read the entire article | Email this article

    BOOK - WHY WE GET FAT

    Gaining 5 lbs of muscle only burns an extra 24 calories per day notes Gary Taubes

    "If we replace five pounds of fat with five pounds of muscle, which is a significant achievement for most adults, we will increase our energy expenditure by two dozen calories a day. Once again, we're talking about the caloric equivalent of a quarter-slice of bread, with no guarantee that we won't be two-dozen-calories-a-day hungrier because of this," writes Gary Taubes in his excellent book Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It.

    This is in relationship to the idea that weight lifting rather than aerobic activity like running will cause weight loss because weight lifting will increase muscle that will burn more calories, however, as Taubes points out above, the effect of this is tiny.

    BOOK - WHY WE GET FAT

    Two obesity experts failed to mention that women lost no weight training for a marathon, Gary Taubes

    "Two experts in the Handbook of Obesity, for instance, reported as a reason to exercise that the Danish attempt to turn sedentary subjects into marathon runners had resulted in a loss of five pounds of body fat in male subjects; they neglected to mention, however, that it had zero influence on the women in the trial, which could be taken as a strong incentive not to exercise," writes Gary Taubes in his excellent book Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It.

    This is in relationship to the idea that you can lose weight simply by by exercising which will burn more calories without appetite increasing as well to compensate for the extra calories burned. Read the entire article | Email this article

    BOOK - WHY WE GET FAT

    The idea that exercise causes weight loss ignores the idea of working up an appetite, Gary Taubes

    "Physicians, researchers, exercise physiologists, even personal trainers at the gym took to thinking about hunger as though it were something that existed only in the brain, a question of will power (whatever that is), not the natural consequence of a body's effort to get back the energy it has expended," writes Gary Taubes in his excellent book Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It.

    BOOK - WHY WE GET FAT

    The idea that exercise causes weight loss due to nutritionist Jean Mayer, notes Gary Taubes

    "The dubious credit for why we came to believe otherwise goes almost exclusively to one man, Jean Mayer, who began his professional career at Harvard in 1950, proceeded to become the most influential nutritionist in the United States, and then, for sixteen years, served as president of Tufts University (where there is now a Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging)," writes Gary Taubes in his excellent book Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It.

    "Data from the scientific community indicate that a 15-[week] diet or diet plus exercise program produces a weight loss of about [22 lbs] with a 60-80% maintenance after 1 [year]," according to a 1999 review paper on the effectiveness of diet and exercise for weight loss.

    "Although long-term follow-up data are meager, the data that do exist suggest almost complete relapse after 3-5 [years]."
