Everyone these days seems to want to lose weight quickly. It’s all about cutting and watching the weight drop off. Reality however is that people who lose weight slowly and steadily are more successful at keeping it off in the long term. Healthy sustainable weight loss isn’t just about controlling what you eat, it’s also about your ongoing lifestyle activities, and that includes exercise.
The Best Diet and Exercise Plan
The key to successful weight loss is all about burning more calories than you take in. We all know that cutting calories with an effective diet plan can get good results, but you can also boost your weight loss by getting more active.
For the best results on any diet plan, it’s important to find ways to use up more calories through exercise. Experts recommend that you should try to get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day.
Increase your calorie allowance through exercise
All forms of exercise have a calorie burn associated with them, and we have records from housework to Zumba to make sure that any form of exercise, no matter how small, is accounted for. After all, it all adds up!
With our extensive record database, you can record the different exercises you do and find out how many calories you burn. This enables you to include your exercise in your weight loss plan and earn more calories for bigger meals or more treats. Our exercise diary is a great tool for logging your exercise and you can:
How can I start an exercise plan with my diet?
You don’t have to go anywhere to get more exercise, indeed many people who want to start their journey feel self conscious and prefer for MNS to get active at our wellness centre. Just being more active in your daily life can have an effect on the amount of calories burned.
Do something that you enjoy. Most fitness experts agree that you’ll have more success sticking to an exercise plan if you enjoy it, plus it’s important to find activities that fit into your lifestyle.
Try to vary your exercise; your body needs to be continuously pushed in order to burn fat and tone muscle. It’s important that you keep pushing yourself and varying your routine. This might mean trying some different cardiovascular machines if you come to the wellness center, or increasing the intensity of your workout, such as walking for a longer distance in the same amount of time. Our bodies are designed to be active, and anything that you do will count towards your exercise quota. Plus, with just a little motivation, it’s easy to get some form of exercise into your daily routine.
