  • Performance = Speed, Power, Balance, Agility, SpeedHealth = Cardiovascular Fitness, Flexibility, Body Composition, Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance
  • HINTS: developed by NCI to describe cancer-related knowledge, beliefs, attitudes and behaviors
  • Exercise is slower than SSRI’s
  • Transcript

    • 1. Eat Right…
      Feel Right
      Mark Stoutenberg, Ph.D.Research Assistant Professor
      Department of Epidemiology & Public Health
      University of Miami Miller School of Medicine
    • 2. What if there was
      one prescription
      that could
      prevent and treat
      dozens of diseases,
      such as diabetes, hypertension
      and obesity?
    • 3. We know adequate amounts of Physical Activity:
      Reduces blood pressure
      Reduces cholesterol
      Reduces risk of diabetes
      Reduces risk of cancer
      Reduces excess body fat
      Reduces risk of osteoporosis
      Reduces risk of heart attack
      Reduces anxiety
      Reduces depression
      Improves memory
      Improves functional abilities
    • 4. Evolutionary Paradox
      We won the war on against physical work
      but are losing to disease!!
      As evolution increased our ability to:
      • Move and think improved
      • 5. Brain size increased
      • 6. Increased ability to rationalize and solve-problems
      • 7. Led to tool development, industrialization and, ultimately
    • 8. Energy Balance
    • 9. Thermic Effect of Exercise
      Jeukendrup and Gleeson. Sport Nutrition: An Introduction to Energy Production and Performance, 1st Edition.
    • 10. Daily Energy Balance
      Jeukendrup and Gleeson. Sport Nutrition: An Introduction to Energy Production and Performance, 1st Edition.
    • 11. What is Physical Activity?
      Physical Activity (PA)
      - any movement of the body that results in energy expenditure
      Physical Activity
    • 12. Physical Activity
      Occupational & Lifestyle PA
      Leisure-Time Physical Activity
      Physical Transportation
      Health-Related Fitness
      Performance-Related Fitness
    • 13. Who is the Most Active?
      A person who moves around all day but does not do any formal exercise
      A person who has a desk job and goes to the gym for 1 hour each night
    • 14. PA Intensity
      • Low Intensity (MET < 3.0)
      • 15. Does not substantially raise heart rate
      • 16. Light daily activities that include:
      • 17. Shopping
      • 18. Cooking
      • 19. Doing the laundry
      • 20. Moderate Intensity (MET = 3.0 – 6.0)
      • 21. Raises heart rate and hard enough that it causes break a sweat
      • 22. Examples include:
      • 23. Brisk walking
      • 24. Water aerobics
      • 25. Bike riding
      • 26. Pushing a lawn mower
      • 27. Raking leaves
    • PA Intensity
      • Vigorous Intensity (MET > 6.0)
      • 28. Results in a hard, fast breathing rate and an elevated HR
      • 29. Examples:
      • 30. Jogging or running
      • 31. Swimming laps
      • 32. Riding a bike fast or on hills
      • 33. Playing singles tennis or basketball
    • Health Benefits of Exercise
    • 34. Lifetime PA & Breast Cancer
      Nurses’ Health Study II (2008)
      64,777 eligible women
      Length of follow-up = 6 years
      550 cases of BCa in premenopausal women
      Total lifetime PA associated with 25% decrease in risk in BCa
      Higher levels of leisure-time PA during ages 12–22 were extremely important
      Regardless of PA levels during later years in life
      Maruti, S.S., et. al. J Natl Cancer Inst. 2008; 100: 728-737.
    • 35. PA & Cancer Survival
      • Women who decreased their PA levels are at an approximately 4-fold increased risk of death
      • 36. Pre- to post-diagnosis
      Irwin, M.L., et. al. J Clin Oncol. 2008; 26: 3958-3964.
    • 37. Cancer Prevention Strategies
      • Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS)
      • 38. Asked respondents, “Can you think of anything people can do to reduce their chances of getting cancer?”
      • 39. Of the 5,586 respondents, only 25.1% cited exercise as a cancer prevention strategy
      • 40. Those who cited exercise as a prevention strategy were more likely (65.6%) to report exercising at least once a week
      Hawkins, N.A., et. al. Health Educ Behav. 2010; 37(4): 490-503.
    • 41. Exercise & Neurogenesis
      Exercise may prevent depression related to aging and decreasing levels of neurogenesis
      Neurogenesis results in higher cognitive function
      Rats that run 3-8km per night show 2-3 times greater neurogenesis (Fabel et al., 2008)
      Increase in number & enhanced maturation of newly developing neurons (van Praag et al., 2008)
    • 42. Exercise & Depression
      Exercise reduces depressive(Rethorst et al., 2008) and anxiety symptoms (Wipfli et al., 2009)
      Suggestions that exercise may be equally effective in treating depression as psychotherapy(Klein at al., 1985) and anti-depressant medication(Babyak et al., 2000; Blumenthal et al., 2007)
      Exercise has been shown to be successful both as a monotherapy and in addition to other treatments
      Decreased interaction effect with other treatments
    • 43. Brain Reward Pathway
      • Middle of the brain  “Reward Pathway”
      • 44. Based on the neurotransmitter called dopamine
      • 45. Continued surges of dopamine causes the brain to:
      • 46. Produce less dopamine - or -
      • 47. Reduce the number of dopamine receptors that receive signals
      • 48. The ability to experience any pleasure is reduced
      • 49. More drug is needed to try and bring their dopamine function back up to normal
    • Exercise “High”
      Exercise increases plasma dopamine (Van Loon et al., 1979)
      Chronic wheel running prevents decreases in affinity of dopamine receptors in aging mice (McRae et al., 1987)
      Dopamine turnover is increased following acute bout of exercise (Hattori et al., 1994)
    • 50. Exercise & Drug Abuse
      STimulant Reduction Intervention using Dosed Exercise
      • Addition of exercise to residential drug treatment programs
      • 51. Cocaine & Methamphetamine abusers
      • 52. Vigorous intensity walking on a treadmill 3x a week
      • 53. To compare the difference in % days abstinence between an exercise interventionon stimulant use
    • Exploratory Goal of STRIDE
      Individuals who suffer from addiction often have one or more accompanying medical issues including:
      Lung disease
      CVD / Stroke
      To determine if there are additional healthbenefits to using exercise augmentation inthe treatment of substance use disorders
    • 54. Your “Exercise” Prescription
    • 55. Determinants;
      Risk & Protective
      Disease Processes
      (e.g., food & brain,
      reward system)
      Physical Activity
      (e.g., stress, depression)
      Obesity & Undernutrition
      Ecological / Environmental
      (e.g., built environment)
      Infectious Disease
      Metabolic Syndrome
      Disease Processes
      Risk & Protective
    • 56. Current Recommendations?
      • Moderately intense cardio 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week;
      • Vigorously intense cardio 20 minutes a day, 3 days a week;
      • Do 8 - 10 strength-training exercises, 8 - 12 repetitions of each exercise 2x / week.
      2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans
    • 57. Lifestyle Modifications
      Convenient, less intimidating, less structured
      Increase likelihood of remaining active over a longer duration
      Integrating activities into daily life
      No set patterns of activity or training or dose of exercise
      Use of behavior modification strategies include:
      Stimulus control
    • 58. Project Active
      • Lifestyle PA program vs. a structured, gym-based program (24 month program & study)
      • 59. Primary goal was to increase daily PA
      • 60. Lifestyle PA:
      • 61. Significant reduction in BP
      • 62. Improvement in cardiorespiratory fitness
      • 63. Reduction in BF%
      • 64. Changes were maintained over 24 months!
      • 65. Now called the “Active Living Every Day” program
