OT: Women Can Do Less Exercise Than Men

…and get the same longevity benefits.

Recent study showed women need do about half of aerobic exercise and about 1/3 of weight training to get same benefits as men. Or 140 minutes cardio vs. 300 minutes per week and 1 lifting session vs 3 per week…

Jury is out as to why. One theory is that male systems are bigger and need more work to be stressed.

My sister and I are both back on Noom.

She has problems dieting and socializing on the weekends. She is down about 2.5 lbs over the weeks.

I am down 6 lbs in just over 2 weeks.

I can eat 2200 calories and lose substantial weight in 24 hours. She has to eat under 1700 calories.
