GREAT advice, and I agree Doctor Mike Evans! I just started walking again, and I feel my body repairing? itself. I’d become too immobile and although checkups were good, I knew something was wrong or would be soon. Now, I feel I’m getting stronger, and will keep it up. Thanks! C-:

I don’t watch TV at all either, though I am not sure what the averages? are for countries in Europe. Probably not much less than the American average. But yeah, not that it matters, I spend that amount of time sitting at the computer, hardly any difference? there.

Thanks for this video. Makes me feel really good? about my 45 minutes in the pool today where they’ve added a water treadmill that I actually used. My doctor’s partner was so excited about my weight loss that he said, “If I had even one patient doing so well, I’d be thrilled!” Loved his positive feedback. Weight management is just plain hard!

I don’t watch tv at all anymore, but I sure do spend a lot of? time on the internet :S I’m heading out for a walk now xD

This was a great video, and I agree 100% that exercise? is awesome. I bike for 60 mins/day and it’s been a huge help with my depression, and I lost 40 lbs in a couple months 🙂

Awesome video!!!!!!

“I’d do anything to lose weight, except eat? healthy and exercise regularly”

Excellent video! I did leg lifts and arm exercises? while watching it–not sitting down. Clear, simple, extremely motivating–thanks!

When I was a kid. I had a generator light on my bike. As long as my bike wheels were moving I had light. Why can’t we have TV and Computers like that. Make elipticals, treadmils, and statationary bikes generators and if you want to watch TV you must generate the energy to watch it or use it byworking out. You can relax during commercials. Also if? just walking is benifitful then make it so you don’t have to break a sweat to use it.
