Weight Loss from Exercise


Weight loss from exercise can be achieved by walking, running, or some sort of aerobic activity. You can exercise at home or at a gym. Other physical activity such as gardening, doing housework such as cleaning, vacuuming are also good forms of exercise.

Before engaging in any form of intense physical exercise you may wish to consult your doctor for a physical checkup. The doctor may check your blood pressure and advise on how much exercise you can do. If you are diabetic you will be advised accordingly. You can ask the doctor for your ideal weight to height ratio.

If you have not been physically active for a long time then you should start gently. Perhaps begin with a few minutes each day for a week. You can then add a few more minutes of exercise every couple of days. Once you feel more capable then you should exercise for 30 minutes continuously everyday. Activity causes your muscles to burn up surplus energy in the form of blood sugar. When all blood sugar to used up your body will turn to the energy stored in your fat cells.

Do not expect miracles to occur in the first few days of exercise. You may lose a tiny amount of weight within a week. This can be from excess water in your system. Using a measuring tape around your waist, you can determine if there is indeed weight loss.

You can increase the intensity of the exercise every week to increase the energy burn rate. Walking up and down stairs instead of using the elevator or lift is good idea. Walking up a gentle incline can help the weight loss. Wear a small backpack with a light weight such as a small book. This should help you exercise more intensely.

Make sure you drink about 8 glasses of water each day. This can help supress your appetite. Eat a balanced diet of fresh fruit, vegetables and protein. Avoid eating processed food products such as cakes, cookies and candy. After exercising you can eat a small snack of fruit such as an apple or banana to help you recover.

Carbohydrates in the form of bread or pasta is ok in moderation. The secret is in the portion size. Keep it small. Meal size should be the size of two fists held together. Protein helps you feel fuller faster. Don't drink water during your meal. It will dilute your digestive juices and affect your digestion. Green leafy vegetables have fiber and help with your bowel health. Don't eat till you feel like bursting.

Training with weights can help with your exercise but should be small weights. Heavier weights will build muscle. Exercising with friends can help keep your motivation up. Praise each others efforts. Riding a bicycle is another exercise option you can explore to help lose weight.

If you have trouble with your joints you might consider swimming or wading in a pool. If walking or running proves to be difficult you could try inflating balloons by blowing air into them. Start with a small balloon. Do not over exert yourself.

Make your goal to exercise and eat regularly and you will surely move towards your desired weight.
