    Anne Elliott answers your fitness questions What Vitamins and Supplements at 50plus?

There are as many reasons not to exercise as there are people you ask. We all know how important it is to maintain a healthy weight and stay fit and healthy – in fact it’s really easy. All you have to do is eat less and move more. Yet it seems to be the hardest thing in the world for the majority of us. The Chief Medical Officer’s report has just been published and outlines how much physical activity we should be doing: How much exercise should I be doing? 1.    Adults should aim...
