And speaking of exercise:

Just read this article on Psychology Today:
"For highly active individuals, overweight is not a problem, however much they eat. In experiments where volunteers upped their food intake by 50%, there was no increase in body weight among physically active individuals ("non exercise" activity). Of course the inactive individuals put on plenty of weight."

The study is here:

Interestingly, the people who lost the weight did it partly by fidgeting more.
