EX­ER­CISE

Good Health Choices - - BE INFORMED -

It’s gen­er­ally agreed that ex­er­cise is an im­por­tant part of main­tain­ing a healthy life­style. And it seems the ear­lier you start, the bet­ter. A study from the Lig­gins In­sti­tute at the Uni­ver­sity of Auck­land says ex­er­cise in early life can coun­ter­act some of the dam­ag­ing ef­fects of a high­fat diet. The re­searchers found that bones re­tain a ‘mem­ory’ of the ef­fects of ex­er­cise long af­ter a work­out ends, and this bone mem­ory con­tin­ues to change the way the body metabolises a high-fat diet. The best part is these pos­i­tive changes may con­tinue way into midlife.
