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.
