MOSCOW, August 29 - RIA Novosti. Sports are the main way to prolong life, said the doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov on the air of the TV channel "Russia 1".
"On the list of 'physical activity, diet, medicine, drugs' only physical activity prolongs life. In second place is calorie restriction and so on," he said.
The physician, in particular, recommended abandoning the elevators and using the stairs more often.
In addition, Myasnikov advised to stop buying food for a week at once and, if possible, walk to the store. Thanks to such walks, another important rule will be observed - a calorie deficit.
"With frequent trips to the store, you do not have to eat large amounts of food, fearing that purchases that have been brought home with such difficulty will deteriorate," the host explained.
It is also possible to increase physical activity by refusing to transport, the specialist noted. If this is not possible, you can miss several stops to the desired point and walk this distance on foot, he concluded.
