Exercise For Weight Loss
Exercise and fitness will always be a very effective part of any weight loss program. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to do the math – to lose fat; you must burn more calories than you take in from the food you eat. “There just isn’t enough time, too difficult,” Some of the classic excuses, but the fact is that people just hate exercising and would rather go back to their couch and watch television. Finding the motivation, time, and right weight loss exercises cause us to stumble. Exercise is extremely important in so many areas of our lives (mental well-being, metabolism, fat loss, heart conditions, and just living longer. Does it really surprise anyone that most of us give up so easily? We don’t spend money on exercise and fitness, and we don’t invest anything into it.
What Exercises Should I Do And How Much?
Keeping up with regular exercise will speed up your metabolism, thus burning more energy and fat. For most of us when we think of aerobic exercise the first thing that comes to mind are images of sweaty gyms, people wearing large t-shirts, and watching all those other people wearing tights moving so well to bad music. It doesn’t have to be this way! Aerobic exercise can be any cardiovascular exercise that is sustained for long periods of time. What does this include? 25 minutes of walking, jogging, skating, or even a machine such as a rowing machine, or treadmill. How long is enough? Some recommend an hour of cardiovascular activity others would say short bursts of 20 minutes is enough; the truth is they’re both right. Do you really have time for either one? No, well then a lifestyle change will be needed.
START SMALL AND WORK UP! I don’t know how many people try to fit everything in at once and burn them selves out; or worse cause an injury. You don’t have to join a gym and if you find it difficult to go outside invest in personal fitness equipment.
When Is The Best Time?
No matter what diet plan you’re on, or pill you are taking to assist in your weight loss to have the best results you will need to include some kind of exercise into the mix. It’s best to start your exercise early in the morning, because it kicks your fat burning metabolism into gear for the whole day. If exercise is done at night, you will generally go to sleep soon after causing your metabolism to go down. It’s best not to eat before you morning exercise, but if you find it hard to exercise on an empty stomach eat something before you start. If you choose not to eat before you exercise be sure to eat breakfast soon after.
