Exercise 2 1/2 Hours a Week...

Obesity and general unhealthiness are CHOKING this country. Most of us eat crap and DON’T exercise. But now, researchers are urging that activity-level may be the MOST important indicator of good health; the Associated Press reports.

And with that, the U.S. Health and Human Services Department has published REVISED national exercise guidelines; up to 2 1/2 hours of activity a week, including things like walking briskly, water aerobics, ballroom dancing, jogging and jumping rope.

Now, if you’ve got two left feet like me and can’t dance. You might want to try training like a Navy Seal or a MIGHTY Spartan. Remember, exercise not only helps you look good and feel great—it helps you POOP too!

They upped it to 2 1/2 hours a week? That's not very much. What was it before? I'm sure I average way more than that. Even more if you include square dancing, which I usually don't even count.

Everyone thinks that they can continue to eat without any sort of consequences for their actions. Yes, I whole-heartedly agree. I am somewhat overweight myself, and I started to use an exercise vest that I got from http://www.hyperwear.com
It seems to be working. Has anyone tried this?

I think the other key is to take stairs instead of the elevator whenever possible-to walk instead of driving.
