When you decide to exercise, dieting is the worst thing you can do. Change your eating habits 10% at a time to allow for the body to settle into the new habits. Stay away from the scale because when you start exercising you will probably gain weight, since muscles are heavier than fat and in most cases you will experience a plateau when it comes to weight loss, however you’ll notice the reduction of inches around your waist line as well as the rest of the body.
So if you are worried about heart disease, hoping to prevent high blood pressure and other major diseases, no matter what your current weight is, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol, and it decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases. Of course this is taking into account that you are working on better nutrition, reading ingredient labels, starting to eat organic and staying away from stressful diets as well as evil weight scales.
Regular exercise helps prevent or manage many health problems and concerns, including:
- Metabolic syndrome
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Many types of cancer
It can also help improve cognitive function and helps lower the risk of death from all causes. So now that you have the good news on exercising, here are some pointers for success:
- Start exercising slow
- Value your rest time to decompress
- Don’t try to lose weight you gained in 30 years all in one month
- Slow weight loss means weight you’ll never see again
