WOW! I thought I knew but obviously I have a lot to learn. I agree with the comment about exercise. That is really a lot.
I feel pretty good about getting the 60-90 in a day. I don't park "at the door" when I shop, and I make trips up and down the steps with laundry, etc. I also walk 4 times a week, about an hour at a time.
For maintenance, keeping a good balance of healthy foods AND exercise has to be a part. There is no way I would have the energy I have without my body getting sufficient exercise at least 5-6 days a week. I really need this. It is a mood booster for sure! It is attainable. Park further from my destination, take stairs to different floors for bathroom breaks, get up move around, etc. It really works!
60-90 minutes is grossly unrealistic for the average adult. I work 10 to 12 hour days and commute over 2hrs per day. If I am going to have enough time to sleep and do all of my daily domestic duties, doing that much exercise is crazy. Exercise for weight loss isn't all that effective anyway. Exercising for health maintenance is a better approach. 30 minutes is doable. Telling people they need to work out 90 minutes per day is bound to turn some off of exercising. 80% of weight management happens in the kitchen.

Very informative, thank you. 60-90 minutes exercise a day in small increments will be my focus.

Very informative. Don't know if I agree 100% with all the information.
