If you’ve acquired an extra pound or two this holiday season, that’s one gift you might want to return.
Hi, I’m Dr. Griffin Rodgers, bringing you Healthy Moments from the NIH. I’m the Director of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
To lose weight, start an exercise routine to get back on track. Most adults need 60 minutes of moderate- to vigorous- physical activity on most days of the week. To get to 60 minutes, you could walk 2 miles in 30 minutes plus dance or bicycle another 30 minutes.
But if you’ve been inactive for a while, slowly work up to a comfortable pace.
Regular physical activity can also help you reduce your risk for chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.
And for more tips, visit our website at NIDDK or majic1023.com. This is Dr. Griffin Rodgers. Join me next week for more “Healthy Moments.”
