News flash: a simple 10 minutes of brisk exercise per day can make you see immediate results in weight loss and toning. A team of researchers from Louisiana State University discovered that overweight or obese, sedentary women who began exercising an average of 72 minutes per week increased peak oxygen consumption by 4.2 percent.
