Hike More, Lose Fat

Here is a novel concept: hiking helps you lose fat. That’s what doctors at the
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire are telling patients,
according to the Associated Press. Patients, looking
for personalized advice, are being given hiking trails and told to get outdoors for some fresh air and the shedding of
pounds. It turns out also the hospital’s partner in this program, the Upper Valley
Trails Alliance
, is just one part of a larger effort nationwide
called “Active Living By Design“.
