How To Burn The Fat

Cardiovascular exercise is a great way to help you reduce excess fat and unwanted weight. It is a critical component of good health, especially as you age. Exercise will help you to sleep better, improve your resistance to fight infections, lower your risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes, and help your brain work better, making you smarter.

I believe exercise and nutrition go hand-in-hand. The key to exercising is to make sure you are using it effectively. By doing so, you will ensure all your hard efforts are not wasted and are having a positive effect on your body. To aid you in your exercise efforts, there are three important variables to exercise to keep in mind: 1) Length of time, 2) Frequency and 3) Intensity

A study from Brown University researchers found that 2,500 people who lost an average 60 pounds and kept it off for a year exercised about an hour a day. We know that thirty minutes every day is a good thing. But I encourage people to gradually increase the amount of time they are exercising to one hour a day.

You should exercise hard enough so that it is difficult to talk to someone next to you. When you are exercising that hard, your cardiovascular system is under such a significant amount of stress that the mere act of talking makes you unable to provide your body with enough oxygen. However, if you cannot carry on a conversation at all, then you have gone too far and need to decrease the intensity.

Conclusion

People who lose the weight and keep it off usually pay close attention to their diets as well as maintaining a consistent exercise program. If you do not adopt both exercise and focus on your eating behaviors, you most likely will not be successful long term. This is simple, common sense advice. Just do it and enjoy the benefits of a happier and healthier life.
