A new study suggests some obese women get one hour of vigorous exercise, a year.

Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham looked at a year-long study which tracked the eating habits and activity levels of 2,500 adults.

Activities like jogging and jumping rope were considered “vigorous.”

Researchers say exercise can have a big impact on overall health.

The recommend obese patients start with simple tasks like parking far away or taking the stairs.
