Statistics indicate that only 20 percent of Americans get enough physical exercise, while up to 64 percent of Americans don’t exercise at all. In addition, only 33 percent of Europeans do some regular exercise, and 42 percent don’t exercise at all.
Middle aged people who are overweight or obese are more likely to develop various diseases, including stroke, arthritis, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and colon cancer.
Physical activity benefits one’s body weight, and it also has beneficial effects on the blood pressure, triglyceride, cholesterol, strokes, arthritis, cancers, sleep and mood. But why only few people actually do exercises regularly? The researchers consider that it is because that it takes time and effort, and that people know little about short- and long-term benefits of exercise. Research on people who do not exercise in Europe confirms this hypothesis.
Many people are not clear about caloric intake and calories burned during exercise. Comparing with exercise, calorie restriction dieting is thought to be a better way to control body weight. This is a big problem, according to the researchers.
