Regular exercise, even from young age is very good for later period. But, once it becomes a habit, never leaves.
Regular Exercise While Young May Slow Middle-Age Spread
TUESDAY, Dec. 14 (HealthDay News) — People who consistently exercise during their younger years, especially women, are less likely to face the battle of the bulge that less-consistent types struggle with, researchers say.
But regular exercise while young only appeared to prevent later weight gain if it reached about 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity a week, such as running, fast walking, basketball, exercise classes or daily activities like housework, according to a study in the Dec. 15 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
“Let’s go into middle age with the best opportunities we have for good weight, and you do that by starting early,” Ory agreed. “But it’s never too late to start good behaviors. You’re just probably going to have to do it more intensively.”
