Follow Diet and Exercise Rules for the Best Result
Diet and exercise can not be separated when you aim for a long term healthy weight loss.

If you do have planned to start a long term healthy weight loss program, which obviously will include exercise, there are a few things you should know beforehand:
1. Sweating is not an indicator; there are people who use sweat to measure their exercise; “if you are sweating then you already have a good exercise”... Read More

First tip: save gas. One of the ways to save on gas is to leave your car at home, then get on the public transportation and walk the rest of the way to your destination... Read More
Recreational Activities Versus Proper Exercise
Perhaps the most misunderstood concept in the fitness industry today among health/medical professionals, media and the general public is the confusion over what proper exercise is and what are recreational activities.
The exercise effect of recreational activities range from little or no exercise effect at all (eg walking, mowing the lawn, golf etc) to the opposite end with more athletic activities like running, mountain climbing, basketball etc. All of these activities are recreational, and the exercise effect is always marginal and incomplete. Just because an activity elevates the heart rate, fatigues you, induces labored breathing or makes you sweat, do not assume you have meaningful, productive and worthwhile exercise... Read More

Aerobic exercise is normally the first thing that comes to mind when people think about burning fat. While most people dread the thought of endless, boring hours working in the aerobic heart rate zone, it is normally what people turn to to lose fat. But the good news is, combining aerobic and anaerobic exercise is the best for burning fat.
But before I tell you why combining aerobic and anaerobic exercise is better than aerobic exercise alone, lets talk about what “aerobic” and “anaerobic” means.
Aerobic means in the presence of oxygen. Any activity performed at a low to moderate intensity for more than 90 seconds, allowing oxygen to release energy through metabolism, is called an aerobic activity.

Get Motivated to Exercise Through Hypnosis

Some of this equipment may include a treadmill, weights, step apparatus, rowing machine, etc. Often well-meaning resolutions or other commitments are the driving force behind the purchase of these pieces of exercise equipment.

Therefore, when selecting exercise equipment, it is important to select equipment that will provide physical exercise, not produce boredom, reduce the risk of injury and be comfortable to use.

Fuel Usage During Exercise
The type of substrate (fuel) and the rate at which it is utilized during exercise is largely dependent on the intensity and duration of the exercise. During strenuous exercise there is an obligatory demand for carbohydrate (CHO) oxidation that must be met; fat oxidation cannot substitute. In contrast, there is an increase in fat oxidation during prolonged moderate intensity exercise as carbohydrate fuels are depleted. Fats are also more dominant in long duration exercise since fat oxidation requires more oxygen than does carbohydrate oxidation.
Fuel Selection During Exercise
Again, fats are the primary source of fuel for muscle during low-intensity exercise (70% of VO2max)... Read More
