I read this ages ago but never really applied what I'd learned. I'm not sure why 12 minutes of aerobic exercise a day seemed like such a daunting task or why I neglected to follow this simple advice. Re-reading has given me a good motivation boost so I'm back on an exercise program again. It seems to much more realistic (for me) than any of the other diet and exercise advice out there, and it seems to be backed up by good science, as near as I can tell.
There are lots and lots of diet and exercise books of one form or another out there for us to read. Covert Bailey was reccomended to me years ago by a cardiologist. Bailey's books are all very down to earth and make sense, helping people make some kind of sense out how to live a healthy life style that includes exercise as well as eating the right foods. I highly recomend any of his books. I have read the book many times since 1988
This was a rereading of this book that I bought in the 90s. His premise is that we need to keep exercising long enough each day that we develop fat burning enzymes that will take care of the fat. We don’t actual exercise to burn fat we need to develop the enzymes that will do it for us. His ideas are good and have stimulated me to continue the exercise daily to try to get the muscles developed that will hold those little enzymes.
I read this for health class back in high school. Some years later, my mom bought me the updated copy in an effort to get me to exercise more. I still refer to it from time to time when I'm feeling gung-ho.
Sort of a preoccupation after childbirth.
Fit or fat? Neither and both.
