Why You Shouldn ’t Exercise to Lose Weight
Many of us are lacing up our sneakers and starting (or restarting) exercise regimens in hopes of shedding unwanted pounds. Unquestionably, aiming to be more active is a good thing.

That’s equal to one can of soda—not exactly a great return on your investment of time and effort. It&rsq...
