I KNEW IT! "Fitness may lower cardiovascular death risk"
Tuesday, December 06, 2011
You MUST read this news article here on SparkPeople.
This is based on an 11 year study of 14,000 middle aged men! Those you maintained a fit life-style, although overweight, increased their odds by 30%...and those who INCREASED their fitness levels increased their odds by 40% !!
WooHoo! SEE? We shouldn't rely on the scales. It IS NOT a measurement of our health. And this article also indicated that BMIs are unreliable. It does not take into consideration the composition of each persons body...we are all so different, not just height and weight numbers.
SO get out there and move your booty!! Have fun and enjoy life! Gotta love it!!
