I get a write up all the time from the Biggest loser.com sight! They were talking today about how getting more exercise will slow down memory loss! I am not sure if this is true or not.. Sense I can't seem to remember to exercise!!! LOL

What was the question? Oh there it is just above the box I'm typing in - let me read it again. Ok got it, opps lost it again... Just joking, not that bad - YET. I have heard this before and can see it being true - people who don't move around tend to lose a lot of muscle including in their brain. Just thinking about keeping your blood moving and circulating through your body should be some help. I don't think it will stop it completely though - I am very active and always have been but I see each year I get older and I don't remember things as well.

I have read some studies that show people who excersisce their minds - keeping involved reading, writing, even just doing crossword puzzles will keep their memory better than others.

What was it I was doing here? Oh, thank you dear for the Br :) I have noticed another problem with myLot though: you post discussion, I respond, you comment, then I respond again - problem is it shows my original response but not the list of others (and I've seen some that were very long) that follow - really taxing to my memory sometimes :( hugs and have a wonderful day.

exercise improves circulation, helps the body to get rid of toxin's, promotes endorphines and other useful hormones and generally makes the entire system, including the brain, to function better. It's equally important to exercise the brain, reading, working puzzles, writing and other creative pursuits, etc. It's been shown in studies of Alzheimer's patients that those who read , do crosswords, and do other things to keep the brain active suffer fewer effects and slow the progress of the disease by keeping the brain to active for the disease to kill it.

is it really true ? coz this is the first time i have heard of memory lose to excercise, its better to just have a little excercise not to lose ur weight but to keep urself healthy. i think no one want to lose their memory just coz of losing weight dont u think so ? if u r over weight u have only physical problems , but if u dont have a good memory its very difficult to live n will have both physical n mental problems.

You will not get memory lose from exercising, it is supposed to slow it down,, so you do not lose your memory. It is supposed to improve the memory!
