General Benefits of Exercise

The benefits of exercise go far beyond a toned body and a slimmed down physique.

Regular exercise can:

  • Help many of your body’s systems operate better
  • Alleviate depression and anxiety
  • Increase your chances of living longer – and healthier
  • Protect you from developing heart disease, stroke and certain cancers (including colon and breast cancer)
  • Prevent osteoporosis

 

5 Easy Weight Loss Tips: 

It’s no secret that exercise – in combination with a healthy lifestyle – can lead to weight loss. If you want to accelerate your weight loss efforts and see better results, try the tips below.

  1. Drink at least 8 eight-ounce glasses of water each day. If you’re trying to lose weight, don’t skip the water – it can help regulate your metabolism and boost your metabolic rate.
  2. Eat every 3-4 hours – or five times a day. Prevent your brain from thinking there is a scarcity of food – and switching into fat-saving mode – by eating properly portioned food five times daily.
  3. Consume real food… Protein bars or shakes may start off with a lower calorie count than a meal, but your body doesn’t have to do much to digest these foods, and you end up with more calories. Eat a regular meal instead.
  4. Mind the sweets. You don’t have to give up sugar completely, just eat it in moderation – limit yourself to 18 grams of sugar or less per snack. This will help you avoid taking in too much sugar at once – which can send your body into fat-saving (rather than fat-burning) mode.
  5. Watch your portions. Portion control helps you get just the right amount of food – not too much (which can sabotage weight loss) and not too little (which can actually switch your body into fat-saving mode).

Time for Action!

If it’s been awhile since you exercised regularly, experiment with different activities to find one (or a few!) that engage you. Play tennis, go for a swim, or enjoy a walk.

And remember, you don’t lose weight from exercise alone. A combination of exercising and eating right will ensure you meet your weight loss goals this summer and beyond…
