Exercise and Cholesterol

I cannot stress this enough, but daily exercise is the key to a healthy body. It's been shown that exercise is one of the most effective ways to control cholesterol levels and it works even if you don't lose weight. This is the message from a study out of Duke University Medical. This is the first study to demonstrate that exercise alone, independent of weight loss or diet changes, can reduce the risk of heart disease by a considerable margin.

The bottom line is that exercise is good for you even if you don't lose weight. On the other hand, if you exercise, lose weight and body fat, the health results are even better. In all, exercise and a proper balance of fats should be a part of any good diet and approach to cardiovascular health.
