Fat and Fit: Why Exercise is Important
Professor Elliot Berry, Director of the Hebrew University-Hadassah School of Public Health and Community Medicine, has examined the relative benefits of weight loss and exercise on overall well-being. Some of his research subjects were instructed to reduce their daily caloric intake by 1,000 calories, while others exercised for 3 hours a day. While weight loss was comparable among both groups, those who exercised had lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in their blood – and the men registered higher testosterone levels.

Concluded Professor Berry: “Better fat and fit than lean and lazy.”
