Activity Doesn't Ensure a Thinner Body

Can you lose weight without ? You bet!

Well....can you  without losing weight? You bet!

Well then....can you  and still gain weight? You bet!

Well, at least we're honest, which is more than can be said for most of Diet Mania these days.

How to Lose Weight Without Exercising

So yes, you can lose weight without exercising AND if you eat too much even while the most aggressive high-impact activity plan, you won't lose weight AND if you eat an overabundance of calories, you will gain weight even if you exercise.

BUT, you'd gain less weight than if you weren't including the activity amid your daily routine.

Aggressive Activity Routines, One Reason Why Diets Fail

Cutting through the maze, and to be frank, 'exercise' is one of the biggest turnoffs when it comes to losing those unwanted fat layers.

Rather than blow off the entire thought of losing them, the individual should try a bit of moderate activity such as a brisk walk for 10 to 15 minutes per day.

Any activity that will get the heart rate up works towards enhancing health. The rewards are great; just ask your bathroom scales as well as your doctor at your next check-up.

Fitness Includes Several Elements, Not Just Activity

On the other hand, it's not solely activity which creates a healthy body - one that is at its ideal size.

Change in Eating Plan From Unhealthy to Fit

It also requires a change in the manner in which we eat...

While a chicken fried steak drowning in country gravy, a side of mashed potatoes, a side of green beans cooked with real bacon, an extra large biscuit with real butter and a Mason jar of sweet tea hold dynamite flavors let's look at a wiser meal plate selection based on what is best for the human body.

A roasted chicken leg or one-half of a roasted chicken breast, a side of steamed rice, a side of green beans, a slice of whole grain bread and an unlimited amount of unsweetened tea with a squeeze of lemon.

Amounts of Energy Consumed Impact Body Weight

It's not only about the types of food and drink that are input into our day, it's also about the amounts. This formula, combined with moderate activity which is balanced with relaxation is a winning combination for optimum health.

What if You Hate ?

If you find that you just can't tolerate exercise, maybe you're choosing one that's not for you. Think about what you enjoy doing in life.

Do you like to shop? Then go shopping - and shop until you drop.

That's a form of activity; just walk briskly when moving from one area to another and don't veer from stooping or bending to examine those lower shelves.

You might find a bargain while you are working the leg muscles.

Do you like water? Swimming might be perfect for you. If you don't have a pool then check out the local clubs.

Some have very inexpensive fees and you'll have free use of not only the pool but other gear and machines at the club that you may discover to your liking.

What about sports? Do you like basketball? What about shooting some hoops. Even flying a kite, cooking, planting flowers, and sewing burns calories and incorporates activity.

Key to Fitness is Choosing an Exercise You Enjoy for a Lifetime

The key is to choose an activity that you enjoy - and that you'll stick with going forward.

How Much Should I Exercise?

Experts recommend exercising 30 minutes per day at least 5 times per week. Again, you need to get your heart rate up for maximum health benefits: stronger heart, stronger lungs, muscle tone, stronger bones just to name a few of those healthy benefits.
