Home Science Health Counter weight gain with a bike

A Harvard/Brigham and Women's Hospital study confirms the long-held scientific position that moderate exercise, such as bicycle riding and brisk walking, helps to control weight gain as women age.

 


It's not rocket science, but people still don't seem to get it. Here is more proof that to lose weight you need to exercise.

Yet another study has confirmed what nutritionists, scientists, physicians, and many other professionals already know: If you want to control your weight gain over the years, then you need to moderately exercise on a daily basis. It works for women and for men, too!

The Archives of Internal Medicine paper 'Bicycle Riding, Walking, and Weight Gain in Premenopausal Women' was published on June 28, 2010 (Arch Intern Med. 2010;170(12):1050-1056).

Its authors are Anne C. Lusk, Rania A. Mekary, Diane Feskanich, and Walter C. Willett.

They are associated with the following: Departments of Nutrition (Lusk, Mekary, and Willett) and Epidemiology (Mekary and Willett), Harvard School of Public Health, and Channing Laboratory, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Harvard Medical School (Feskanich and Willett), Boston, Massachusetts.

The goal of their study was to compare bicycle riding and brisk walking in being effective ways to control weight gain in premenopausal women.

Page two talks about the study in detail, along with its results and conclusions.
