Why should we exercise? It will not only help you burn fat and calories it will also help move your lymphatic fluid – which is a major factor in your immune system, as well as, keeps your body flushing out toxins in a efficient manner.
The benefits of exercise don’t stop when you leave the gym. Studies have shown that after 30 minutes of exercise you continue to burn calories throughout the day at a faster rate than normal because exercise speeds up your resting metabolic rate.
What this means for you is that you not only burn those pesky extra calories during the exercise, you will be burning them while you are resting too! So please get out there and sweat – a brisk walk 3-5 times per week is a safe and great place to start. It is very effective for weight loss and cardiovascular health.
Please don’t be misled into thinking that you have to get on the treadmill and pound it out at 100 miles per hour. This is much more damaging to your system than helpful. Exercise for your health and wellbeing. It truly is that important – Make the time!
