Get a lot of it fast and lose pounds, too, with our easy new plan.

Al­ways worn out? The sin­gle best way to get your en­ergy back is to ex­er­cise, even if you don’t feel like lift­ing a pinkie toe. New re­search shows just how strong the con­nec­tion re­ally is and how do­ing even a lit­tle helps you in a hurry. Think of ex­er­cise as your en­ergy-back guar­an­tee: A ground-break­ing study re­viewed 70 other stud­ies of more than 6,800 peo­ple to­tal and found that reg­u­lar work­outs con­sis­tently in­creased en­ergy and low­ered fa­tigue in adults of all ages (and even worked for peo­ple with con­di­tions like can­cer and heart dis­ease). Best of all, it didn’t take months of hard­core work­outs for par­tic­i­pants to reap the ben­e­fits. Ready to get go­ing? Here’s our easy plan to feel­ing great again – fast. Keep it up for eight weeks, and you’ll take off five kgs, too!
