A5-6) Exercise

Exercise is beneficial to the health of everyone, be they fat or thin.
See for example [Bla+]. It increases flexibility and mobility,
provides more energy and muscle tone, and can help to keep blood
pressure at normal levels. Also see the FAQs on Fitness Resources,
and Sports and Activities, for exercise tips for exercising as a large
person.


There is a mailing list for those who wish to discuss fitness and
healthy eating in a size-accepting atmosphere. Discussion of weight loss
for the sake of health is allowed, but it is not assumed you want to lose
weight. To subscribe, send mail to listproc@listserv.oit.unc.edu with
the content SUBSCRIBE FATANDFIT (your name).
