The Department of Health and Human Services has just issued new guidelines for physical activity. They come with a guide for adults, a toolkit for community organizers, and research information for professionals. The approach is easy: some activity is better than none; more is better than less. Seems like good advice (but if you are worried about weight, you still have to eat less).
