Exercise is a huge part of being able to lose weight effectively. Without increasing your bodies energy needs, and kickstarting your metabolism, anything else is short termism and bound to end in failure.
Linking exercise to weight loss should seem a simple equation. But for too long men and women that are trying to lose weight effectively and for the long term, have tried to simply change what they eat and drink. With only a minimal increase in daily exercise, this is not a long term weight loss strategy that can work.
In plain English, to ensure you are using up more energy than you are consuming will almost definitely require some form of exercise. Whether it's a walk every day in the park or a gym session or fitness class, asking your body to do some exercise burns calories. As you get in to it, you will also be adding muscle to your frame. muscle requires more calories to work, so there's a cumulative effect.
Exercise will, thanks to increase in the need for calories, then mean you will start to lose fat as well as tone up. This has the amazing effect for most of providing more motivation and therefore incentive to workout. Not only that, the more you work out and the more weight you lose, the easier exercising becomes. You won't be so tired and breathless any more. It really is a catch 22.
A matter of routine, if you combine a need to exercise with a desire for weight loss, by doing the following you can ensure you build a little more exercise into your daily routine with the minimum amount of fuss and disruption:
Managing your weight is difficult and at times you may feel frustrated and disheartened, but there are ways to cope. It helps if your friends and family support and encourage you. Or you might find that attending a commercial weight-loss group helps to maintain your motivation. Your local GP surgery may also hold a weight-management group.
Keeping the motivation to lose weight alive will ensure you are able to push through those times when things don't seem to be going very well. This is particularly important with exercise as there will definitely be times when you just don't want to workout/go for a walk etc.
Having a training buddy is one of the simplest ways to ensure you make it to the gym when you're supposed to be there! That feeling of not letting someone else down is usually enough to motivate most to keep on track. Likewise, if you can afford it, personal trainers are a similar ilk, but can also help with your actual workout rather than just being there.
