Commuters who shun car travel keep slimmer, UK study concludes

People who cycle, walk or catch the train or bus to work keep more weight off than commuters who travel by car, a large British study has found. 

Cycling came out as the best activity for staying trim, followed by walking.

But even those who used public transport were leaner than car users.

The authors of the Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology study say the findings show even a little physical activity is better than nothing at all.
