Do This 5 Minutes a Day to Lose Weight?

A new study suggests that doing this activity for just five minutes a day can help women keep the pounds off? Any guesses?

Biking!

Health.com has the scoop on this study conducted by Harvard researchers:

Women who started biking for just five minutes a day gained about 1.5 fewer pounds over the course of the study than similar women who didn’t take up biking, the researchers found. Women who increased their daily biking by 30 minutes during the study kept even more weight off, gaining about 3.5 fewer pounds than those whose biking habits stayed the same.

And if you're going to bike, we love the bikes over at Linus. (They even made it into our Earth Day Gift Guide for Guys!)
