    Dietitian Elizabeth Rahavi discusses if you have to workout for 30 or 60 minutes straight.

    Host: Do I have to workout for 30 or 60 minutes straight?

    Elizabeth Rahavi: No, you don't have to workout for 30 to 60 minute straight. You can split this up into different segments throughout the day. Some folks like to get up and do a 30-minute walk before work. Some folks like to do a nice, long 60-minute workout during their lunch break and eat lunch at their desk. You could also workout at night at the gym after you put your kids to sleep. If you're single, try working out with friends so that you don't get bored and you have entertainment while you're working out. It makes it seem less like physical activity and more like fun.
