Exercise Less

I am gemused to see that Nanny's advice that we should do 150 minutes of exercise a week, has been castigated in the BMJ as being unrealistic.

Instead of setting a target that many (eg the elderly) can't achieve, researchers argue that doctors should set more achievable targets of small increases in activity (especially for those who currently do fark all exercise).

Prof Philipe de Souto Barreto at the University Hospital of Toulouse, advises people who are sedentary to make small incremental increases in their activity levels - rather than pushing to achieve current goals.

He points to previous studies which show even short periods of walking or just 20 minutes of vigorous activity a few times a month, can reduce the risk of death, compared to people who do no exercise.

In the second article, Prof Phillip Sparling of the Georgia Institute of Technology, says doctors should tailor their advice - particularly for older patients.

He suggests using GP visits for people over 60 to discuss "realistic options" to increase activity - such as getting people to stand up and move during TV commercial breaks.

Suffice to say, Nanny is having non of this backsliding nonsense!

Prof Kevin Fenton at Public Health England, is quoted by the BBC:
"Everyone needs to be active every day - bouts of 10 or more minutes of physical activity have proven health benefits, but getting 150 minutes or more of moderate activity every week is the amount we need to positively impact on a wide range of health conditions. 

This includes reducing the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes."
It is farking pointless of Nanny to stick rigidly to the 150 minute formula, if people are put off from doing anything at all if they are told that they MUST do 150 minutes a week in order to save themselves from diseases!

    Is wanking considered exercise? If it is, then the nanny state could do a lot worse than show hard-core porno on the BBC after the watershed. Keeping Britain Fit Thru' XXXercise.
