Researchers find exercise often works just as well as drugs for the treatment of heart disease and stroke, and the prevention of diabetes. Exercise is medicine.
This is why I recommend 90 minutes of moderate-intensity, or 40 minutes of vigorous-intensity exercise. You can find examples in my free Daily Dozen app (for iPhone and Android). Since this video came out, I have more videos on exercise: • Exercise vs. Drugs for Depression (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/exer…) • How Much Should You Exercise? (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-…) • Foods to Improve Athletic Performance and Recovery (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/food…)
Thanks for watching. I hope you’ll join in the evidence-based nutrition revolution!
