Overweight problems and related deseases are causing 400.000 death alone in the USA, and other countries are catching up. Together with too much food intake, too little use of the body energy is the main cause of the problem. It is shown how more physical exercise can help solving another big problem humanity is facing, cutting down on energy coonsumption and its associated environmental problems. Examples are walking or biking in stead of using car or other motorized transport, and the problems call for a completely new way of planning our buildings, cities, etc. to make them 'not too' comfortable.
