Bicycling, Brisk Walking 30 Minutes Daily Controls Weight

RedTracker| The Harvard Nurses’ Health Study, which is tracking 116,608 female nurses since 1989, when they were 25 to 42 years old, finds that bicycling and brisk walking — not slow walking — are effective in fighting obesity.

Women who biked or walked briskly 30 minutes a day over the 16-year-period maintained or even lost weight, in contrast to the slow walkers. Women who decreased their bicycling time from more than 15 minutes a day to less than 15 minutes gained about four-and-a-half pounds on average. via NYTimes
