I’ve been writing more about exercise, so I thought this worth pointing out: Exercise won’t make you skinny.
Yes, some people exercise for weight control. But it requires working out a lot, not a little, and you don’t necessarily lose a lot of weight. Some people gain a little weight when they start exercising. Bodybuilders work hard to gain weight.
Exercise can improve your mobility, balance, and strength. It can improve your heart, lungs, joints, cholesterol, insulin sensitivity, bone, and your overall health. Exercising a lot may make you thinner. But it will not necessarily make you thin.
