Women may need at least an hour of exercise daily to avoid weight gain
A major new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that without making changes in diet, women need a lot of exercise just to keep their weight stable. The investigators found that at least an hour of moderate activity every day is needed for older women who are at a healthy weight and who aren’t dieting. Overweight women require even more exercise to avoid gaining weight without eating less. It’s uncertain whether the results would apply to men. As they age, people often put on weight because their metabolism slows down. For those who cannot do so much, an average of 35 minutes a day, seven days a week, is probably sufficient. Others advise doing at least 150 minutes of moderate–intensity physical activity each week.

Laughter the best medicine
One afternoon, a man went to his doctor and told him that he hadn’t been feeling well lately. The doctor examined the man, left the room, and came back with three different bottles of pills.
The doctor said, "Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you wake up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after you eat lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water."
Startled to be put on so much medicine, the man stammered, "Doc, exactly what is my problem?"
The doctor replied, "You’re not drinking enough water."
