This Is Why Fast Food Always Looks Better in Commercials The sad-looking food you sometimes get in the restaurant may not look as appetizing, but it actually tastes better.

People who walk faster are more likely to live longer regardless of their weight. That's according to a study scientists say suggests fitness levels might be a better indicator of health than an individual's body mass index (BMI).

Researchers in the U.K. looked at data on 474,919 people who took part in the U.K. Biobank study between March 13, 2006, and January 31, 2016. The participants answered whether their usual walking pace was slow, steady/average or brisk. Researchers also measured factors including the participants' BMI (calculated by dividing an adult’s weight in kilograms by their height in meters squared), their waist circumference, and body-fat percentage. On average, the participants were 58.2 years old and had a BMI of 26.7, landing them in the overweight category.

Participants who said they walked briskly had longer life expectancies than the others regardless of their BMI, at 86.7 to 87.8 years for women and 85.2 to 86.8 years for men. Meanwhile, those who walked slowly had shorter life expectancies, particularly those who said they moved slowly and had a BMI of less than 20, even though this was in the healthy range. Women in this group had an average life expectancy of 72.4 years, dropping to 64.8 years for men.

The authors of the study published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings concluded: “Brisk walkers were found to have longer life expectancies, which was constant across different levels and indices of adiposity.” Adiposity means being severely or morbidly overweight.

But more research must be done to look at whether the “high-risk” slowest paced low BMI group could improve their life expectancies by boosting their fitness, the authors noted.

Tom Yates, a lead author of the study and professor of physical activity, sedentary behavior and health at the University of Leicester, commented: “The findings suggest that perhaps physical fitness is a better indicator of life expectancy than body mass index, and that encouraging the population to engage in brisk walking may add years to their lives."

Dr. Francesco Zaccardi, study co-author and clinical epidemiologist at the Leicester Diabetes Centre at Leicester General Hospital, commented: "Studies published so far have mainly shown the impact of body weight and physical fitness on mortality in terms of relative risk, for example, a 20 percent relative increase of risk of death for every 5 kilograms per meters squared increase, compared to a reference value of a BMI of 25 kilograms per meters squared [the threshold BMI between normal weight and overweight].

"However, it is not always easy to interpret a ‘relative risk.’ Reporting in terms of life expectancy, conversely, is easier to interpret and gives a better idea of the separate and joint importance of body mass index and physical fitness."

The work is the latest to call into question whether BMI is the most accurate measure of an individual’s health. Last year, a separate team of scientists argued that measuring what is known as the metabolome could be more precise.
