Exercise: The News You Don't Want to Hear

By Dr. Johnny Bowden

My mentor, the late great nutritionist Robert Crayhon, used to say this: "The two great dangers with nutrition are thinking it does too much, and thinking it does too little."

The same can be said of exercise.

This article is about exercise. And about weight loss. And about the relationship between the two. Which, sad to say, is probably a very different relationship than you might think.

Now before we get started, a disclaimer. I exercise regularly. I think you should too, no matter who you are. I think exercise is the greatest anti-aging activity on the planet. And the data are clear: Exercise can help with depression, lower the risk for heart disease and cancer, and reduce the risk and complications of diabetes. It can even grow new brain cells.

What it can't do is cause you to lose weight.

(I told you this was news you didn't want to hear.)

More of this excellent article at the link.
