No Gym Needed

jumping ropeIn a perfect world, we’d all be at a healthy weight, chow down on perfectly-portioned and balanced meals three times a day and spend several hours a week hitting the gym. But if that sounds impossible to you, maybe you’ve been trying to suss out which heart-healthy habits are skippable.

Hint: It’s not the exercise.

Starting at age 30, physical inactivity has a greater influence on women’s heart disease risk than any other risk factor, including smoking, excess weight and high blood pressure, according to a new study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

Researchers looked at women from a large health study in Australia and found that compared with factors like high BMI, tobacco smoking, high cholesterol, diets low in fruits or nuts, and alcohol use, physical inactivity had the greatest impact.

Short version: While we wouldn’t give you the green light for any of those other factors, either (sorry not sorry!), you definitely can’t skip exercise.
