Older Obese Can Improve Quality Of Life With Diet, Exercise


According to a review of studies, physical activity and a healthier diet can improve bodily function and quality of life in older obese people. According to the study, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, researchers at Dartmouth University found exercise and an improved diet have significant benefits for older obese people. They found that the effect is not nearly as great without both. Improvements to diet hare known to be good for health, and increased physical activity, from midlife and with increasing age, can help cognition and muscle repair. Dr. John Batsis, a researcher at Dartmouth and lead author of the study, said in a press release, "Obesity in older adults is a significant public health concern that will increasingly become a burden to society if we do not address it promptly."
