I try not to use the title of the articles I find, but this one I couldn't change.
This is a great article on how our whole body needs exercise, not just our glucose or weight. http://www.everydayhealth.com/columns/white-s...
It is not just one kind of exercise either…you need as much of a range as you can get to benefit the different parts of your body.
Resistance training for your bone strength
Aerobic for your heart, lungs and nervous system
Moderate exercise helps with depression, sleep, immune system and regeneration of cells in all parts of your body
The last statement was worded kind of weird though "Lastly, regular physical activity extends your life. Research has shown that people who follow federal guidelines for physical activity reduce their risk of dying by 25 to 35 percent." Sorry to burst your bubble, we will all eventually die, but we can live longer and hopefully better when we exercise.
