Exercise and Weight Loss

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Exercise affects weight loss on a few levels. The first is obvious. It helps you burn calories. Since weight loss is based on calories in and calories burned, the more you exercise, the better chance you have of losing weight.

If you weight train, you can burn a few extra calories. This is because muscle needs more calories to maintain itself.

There is another effect. That is the psychological effect. When you exercise you become mindful of what you eat and how much you eat. At first, at least for me, I thought I could lose weight by continuing my bad eating habits as long as I exercised. That was not the case. I then realized that the exercising I was doing was not accomplishing anything. I also realized that I needed to change what I ate and how much I ate. TA-DA! I started to lose weight. As I started to lose weight, I exercised more, became more mindful of food and eating and more weight came off. These were the unknown consequences of exercise. Now, I look at food and say to myself. “Do I really want to have to work this off if I eat it? Mindfulness is a wonderful thing.

Weight Train to Lose Weight

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Last week I mentioned that you don’t need to sweat to exercise. That is for people that want to exercise but don’t really want the stuff that goes with it like sweating. I feel that I would rather have someone go for a leisurely walk than no walk at all.

See Article: You Don’t Have to Sweat to Exercise

However, there is nothing that beats a good, hard, sweaty workout. My favorite exercise is running, but I have added weight training to the mix a few months ago. Although weight training builds muscle it also can cause you to lose weight. It is generally good to include full-body weight training to your exercise routine two to three days of the week. The reason is this. Strength training will break down your muscles, which causes your body to repair them. This takes a lot of energy and helps to boost your metabolism causing your body to burn fat while building muscle.
