Adding to a mounting body of evidence, a new study by Harvard School of Public Health and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, indicating the importance of moderate to vigorous exercise for controlling weight, recommends women should either jump on a bicycle or go for a brisk walk.
The study shows women gain an average of 20 pounds in 16 years (between the years of 25 and 42). However, women whom reported regularly participating in brisk walks or bicycling were much less likely to gain weight. Bicycling for just five minutes a day-helped women gain 1.5 fewer pounds over the duration of the study.
