Everyone hanging in there? Are we enjoying the Dog Days of Summer (which technically end of August 11th)? Are we soaking up that sultry heat and extended sunlight?
I normally enjoy this time of year, but what with everything going on around me, it just doesn't feel the same. I'm still exercising, but I'm also indulging in a few more foods (sugary ones!) to add a little respite to the situation.
While I'm not quite at the COVID 15 (15 pounds, not a new virus name), I know many of us have seen new numbers on our scale. And having been there before, we know it can escalate quicker than it can decrease.
It may seem obvious that those who exercise are less likely to be obese than those who are sedentary. But, interestingly enough, exercise does not seem to be very effective at helping most overweight people drop pounds, probably because exercise tends to make people hungry.
In a new study, which was published in Obesity, researchers in Australia compared the exercise habits and obesity numbers in an enormous group of American adults, over a million!
The researchers noted whether or not the men and women reported having completed at least 150 minutes a week of aerobic activities, such as walking or jogging during the past month, which is the standard health recommendation for exercise. They also recorded whether they had reported having done any resistance exercise, which would include not just weight training but activities like yoga and calisthenics, at least twice a week.
