How To Plan Your Diet

Is Exercise Important?



The answer to this question is ABSOLUTLEY!  There is no getting away from the fact that you must do some form of exercise. The good news is that it does not mean you have to join health clubs or gyms. There are lots of great exercises that you can do that cost you nothing and some are really great fun as well!

You should focus on recreational exercise and workouts that are fun and not tedious such as dancing or cycling.  They are easy to do and help you loose weight naturally.

But knowing this and doing it are not the same thing! Sometimes we can be embarrassed about being too big to go swimming at our local pool for example, so start small. I’ve listed below a few ideas that will cost you nothing except your excess weight.

  • Eat well and use your stairs (if you have them) as your exercise. Climbing stairs is a great way to start.
  •  How about a hula hoop? Five minutes a day will help to tone and shape your whole waist and hips area. And you can do this in the comfort of your own home.
  • Walking. Costs nothing and can really help. You need to walk quite quickly not stroll. Aim for approximately half a mile at first, maybe around the block. Walk down to the post box to post a letter instead of taking the car. Take out your dog for a walk instead of waiting for your partner/children to do it.  The important thing is that you get your self moving.
  • Dancing is one of the best exercise to loose weight quickly and it can be very enjoyable. You can listen to your i-pod or a great CD and dance your way around your living room. In fact, after just 20 minutes (approximately the length of four songs) of high speed dancing you could burn up to 300 calories of fat from your tummy and thighs.
  • Try cycling. If you have a bike, use it. Cycling is great exercise and something that you could do with a partner/children. Before you get carried away though, just remember that however far you cycle, you still have to get back home! Yep, that happened to me. I cycled miles, feeling really good about myself and before I realised it, I was miles from home and had to retrace my route to get back home…

Keep up the good work.
