I posted this in the other thread, but I'm going to repeat it here. The next step in healthy living is exercise. You don't have to run 10 miles a day, but you do need to be active. A 1/2 hour walk everyday will accelerate weight loss & change your blood chemistry. I believe exercise is more important than diet in maintaining a healthy body. If you can do both, exercise & eat healthy you are going to reverse many of the health problems you may have. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, artery clogging, can all be reversed with diet & exercise. But you need to do both. You will be surprised that the 1/2 hour walk you struggle with at first will turn into a 1 hour walk & seem easy after a couple of months. If you live in a cold climate & can't walk outside, then go to a Mall & walk inside. If you can't walk because of bad knees, then get a stationary bike or join the Y and learn how to swim. You guys don't really know my past, but I have been an athlete almost all my life & still exercise everyday. I live in a retirement community & see 80-90 year old folks walking, swimming, doing water aerobics, playing tennis, etc. everyday. Many of them are in very good health. The one thing they have in common is they are active. I urge you all to make some kind of exercise a part of your daily routine.
