Exercise, even if you don't have to.

A new study indicates that if you aren't overweight and are nondiabetic, moderate aerobic exercise can still benefit you.

How? Results of the study showed increases in insulin sensitivity in nonobese, nondiabetic subjects in the absence of significant changes in weight, BMI, waist-hip ratio, lipid profile, and oxygen consumption.

So, you can be pretty healthy, start exercising, see no weight loss, no change your cholesterol, and no increase in aerobic capacity. Yet, you still see a health benefit because you increase insulin sensitivity, a risk factor for heart disease.
