Fitness Matters

A couple of weeks ago, my friend and Food Network host, Ellie Krieger, invited a few colleagues for lunch to celebrate thefitness release of her new book, The Food You Crave. We were joined by editors from MORE magazine who were working on a story on anti-aging. When the editors asked us about our anti-aging strategies, without pause each of us talked about the importance of physical activity. And just yesterday, I read a report that men who are the most fit live the longest and that men who walk briskly for 30 minutes a day, five days a week dramatically cut their risk of dying. For me, physical activity is non-negotiable, like brushing my teeth. No matter how lousy or tired I feel before going to the gym or taking a walk, I feel much better after. Maybe I’ll even live longer!
