Brisk workouts are effective

 Anew research has revealed that for preventing weight gain, the intensity of the activity matters more than the duration. University of Utah researchers found that even brief episodes of physical activity that exceed a certain level of intensity can have a positive effect on weight.
It was suggested that taking the stairs, parking at the far end of the lot, and walking to the store or between errands are choices that can add up and can make a positive health difference. Researchers compared measurements of physical activity based on length of time and intensity. Results showed that a woman who regularly adds a minute of brisk activity to her day will weigh nearly a half-pound less. The results were similar for men.
