Sweat is just fat crying
- IMPORTANCE OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES
Have you ever wondered why our ancestors were healthy and lived for almost an eternity? Physical activity was the secret to it. But as humans progressed and everything became automized, physical activity reduced, and obesity started kicking in. And now, many years later, every third person in India is overweight or obese. At Diet Ghar, we provide exercise regimes along with diet plans that are roughly 45 minutes long, as recommended. They require minimal investment like the yoga mat, swiss ball, and some weights. You don't need any exercise equipment.
- BEST CARDIO EXERCISES
Start your weight loss with a cardio routine as it speeds fat loss, before going on to lifting weights. Breathing is very important while exercising as you lose your fat through your nose as carbon dioxide. Perform cardio exercises like running, swimming, skipping ropes, cycling, or brisk-walking for 45 minutes every day. Your body starts losing fat only after 30 minutes of exercise, so a minimum 45-minute routine is a must.
Keep the burn going
"During your workout, rest no more than 30 seconds between exercises. This will dramatically bump your calorie burn."
Jillian Michaels, fitness expert, via Twitter
Walk it off
"Take a 15-minute walk after each meal to burn a quick 100 calories."
Bob Wright, Hilton Head Health spa
Use your arms
"When you are doing a treadmill workout, add arm exercises with light weights to increase your calorie burn."
Jeanette Jenkins, celeb trainer
Don't forget the dumbbells
"Increase the strength component of your workout. Adding lean muscle to your body not only tones, it also increases your metabolism."
Sara Shears, celeb trainer
Use tried-and-true methods
Take your cue from dieters on the National Weight Control Registry who've lost 66 pounds (on average) and kept it off: 75% weigh themselves at least once a week. 78% are breakfast eaters. 62% limit TV to less than 10 hours a week
Do the math
"Add a zero to your weight and use that to figure how many calories you should have if you're moderately active. If you weigh 140pounds, aim to eat 1,400 calories."
