- Do aerobic exercise (cardio) to lose weight
Aerobic exercise (cardio) is an effective way to improve your health and reduce weight. A combination of a diet mostly of protein and green vegetables plus daily exercise will cause your body to become a fat burning machine.
Studies also show that running or other similar cardio exercise is one of the most effective forms of exercise for reducing belly fat. However, results are mixed as to whether moderate or high intensity exercise is more beneficial.
Generally speaking (and in my experience) a light dinner at 6 and some cardio at 8 and then to bed without more food will cause you to burn fat notably. You’ll realize you are looking slimmer each morning.
My recommendation is to do this diet plus exercise every day for about 2-weeks and then moderate it, because it is possible to lose weight too fast and you won’t like the way you look. It IS POSSIBLE in my own experience to eat some potato or a very small amount of rice and still lose weight more slowly but steadily. Over a year you can reduce 20 or 30 pounds (10 to 15 kilos) withut thinking about it, and without counting carbohydrates or calories. What you must do is avoid white sugar and white flour completely. If you can self-discipine yourself that much you’ll change your body shape and improve your health.
For people under age 25 train as they do in the army. 10 minutes walking, then 5 or 10 minutes jogging, and then continue that cycle until you decide you’ve done enough for the day. This aerobic and exercise routine will cause weight lost faster than anything else I know.
If you want someone around to watch after you, do this in a gym with a trainer and a treadmill. You’re safer there and of course if you’re concerned about heart disease or blood pressure monetoring a gym with a personal trainer on hand is a safer place to ‘work out.’
In any case, the frequency and duration of your exercise program are more important than its intensity. You don’t have to work to the limit or run up hills like a crazy old doctor I know. (that might be me.) You just have to get out there and get moving.
One study found that postmenopausal women lost more fat from all areas when they did aerobic exercise for 300 minutes per week, compared with those who exercised 150 minutes per week. [Mind you, 300 minutes per week is 42 minutes per day or 4 runs of about 10.5 minutes each. I believe them but they’re not telling us anything more about their age, what they ate or if they died promptly after they lost 30-pounds. And it might be just before they died they said, “I hate exercise.” So….
My inclination is to see you go out of a pleasant brisk walk for about 45 minutes daily and enjoy the experience. Some shopping malls allow “mall walkers” to come in and walk around and around before the stores open. They do it for exercise and because they’re out of the weather and away from where “dangerous highway men” might be lurking.
Otherwise you might take a 10-minute jogging or running in a good neighborhood, then 10 or 15 minutes walking, and then if you think your body is ready for it, 10 more minutes jogging, and then the rest of the time walk through a shopping area, walk, look, walk more, look more and enjoy the hour that way. If you like what you’re doing for exercise and what you’re eating it will become a habitual lifestyle and you’ll continue. (What a brilliant concept. I’m so smart sometimes it frightens even Me!….or…..why didn’t anything write this before I did?)
Go out run, dance, skip rope, look into the shop windows, have fun, and then stop someplace for egg fuyung and tea and that’s your run for the day. Of course you probably know this next paragraph.
Egg foo young (Chinese: 芙蓉蛋; pinyin: fúróngdàn; Jyutping: fu4 ‘jung4 daan6*2, also spelled egg fooyung, egg foo yong, egg foo yung, or egg fu yung) is an omelette dish found in Chinese Indonesian, British Chinese, and Chinese American cuisine. The name comes from the Cantonese language.
Aerobic exercise with correct eating habits is an effective weight loss method. Studies suggest it’s particularly effective at slimming your waistline.
I see I’ve done it again. I try to hold these short articles to under 1,000 words and this one is about 800 so it’s a good place to stop. Most friends will go through it in under 3-minutes, which I think is convenient, and I hope you think so too. You have gotten more good information to think about, and plan to put to good use!!!
I’ve written more than intended but since I wrote a diet book long ago — why waste the knowledge when I can give it away and impress you that I’m a good guy and willing to help out. What I really want you to see is that I understand physiology, and that’s important especially these days because so many hack writers are producing articles that lack for truly useful information. They’re out of their field and don’t know what they’re talking about.
What do I want in exchange? I want you to continue reading my blog and visiting www.SgShopper.me/
I’ll write another installment tomorrow. I’m enjoying writing and visiting with you, so please show me you do too. Your visits are counted and very much appreciated.
