Get Up and Move!
Researchers believe that one of the most significant contributors to obesity is that lifestyles today are not conducive to sufficient physical activity. The conveniences that are said to make are lives easier are also making us physically unfit. We have drive-up windows for everything from food to prescriptions. People are working longer hours at sit-down jobs, and homework precedes the evening walk.
In terms of weight management and weight loss, diet combined with exercise yields a more positive result than either one does on its own. Take a look at your lifestyle and determine realistic ways you can become more active. Walking is the easiest way to add physical activity to your daily life.
Exercising daily will help to stabilize your blood sugar levels, improve your heart health, increase your strength and stamina, and will help you sleep better.
Exercise and Metabolism
If weight loss is your initiative, keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more lean muscle you will build. This lean muscle will increase the rate of your resting metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories.
