“To maintain a healthy weight, women need to exercise more than current recommendations suggest, say researchers who studied more than 34,000 middle-aged women for 13 years.  Normal-weight women who gained less than 5 pounds during the study did moderate-intensity exercise, such as running, for an hour a day, seven days a week. Even as little as 5 pounds of weight gain, the researchers say, is enough to worsen health.  Still, if you can’t commit to stepping up your workout schedule, the researchers noted that the recommended 30 minutes of exercise, five days a week, is enough to reduce the risk of many chronic illnesses.”  -Source: JAMA, March 24/31, 2010
