Q: What’s the biggest misconception people have about aging?

A: They think that it’s just a slow decline in activity.

That’s not the case.

I think we’re seeing it in people who are overweight and who are not getting enough exercise.

You’re also seeing it with people who don’t eat a healthy diet.

Q.

Why do we think this is the case?

A.

A lot of people believe that you need a lot of exercise, but they’re not getting the right amount.

They’re getting more than they should.

Q.: You say it takes about five to 10 years to lose the body fat that you gained during that period of time.

Do we need to be more active, or less?

A.: When you’re doing cardio, you’re not working out.

When you have the ability to sit still, you can go do that.

When your ability to move is great, you do the right kind of cardio.

When people don’t do cardio, they think it’s the only thing they need to do to lose weight.
