30 Minutes Of Exercise Better For Weight Loss Than Longer Workouts
A short daily workout of just 30 minutes a day can help dieters lose more weight than exercising for an hour, scientists have found.
For anyone wanting to lose weight, you may need to exercise less than you thought.
A new study has found that people who exercised for just half an hour a day lost a third more weight than those who did an hour long work out.
The scientists behind the study found that the shorter exercise sessions left the participants with more energy and motivation to live healthier lifestyles.
A full hour of hard fitness training was more likely to leave those taking part feeling burned out.
Dr Astrid Jespersen, one of the authors of the study, said the findings could help encourage people who normally struggle to do exercise.
