13weekdiet2

I am hoping for expert help in exercise and fitness?

I am a 66 year old breast cancer survivor. I have gained 90 pounds since my treatment a few years ago. My question is, I would like to walk in the 5 mile Komen for the cure walk next may. I am getting a new treadmill, and have a recumbent exercise bike. I am retired, so have all the time in the world to get into shape. I need a healthy diet and exercise routine to follow everyday. If there is a fitness trainer or someone in the know, I sure would appreciate your help. Thanks

I would emphasize starting out slowly but steady. Walk briskly 5 days a week for 20 to 30 minutes. Drink a lot of water, your body weight divided by 2 and drink that in ounces. Get a good DVD on strenght training and follow that too. I find really great advice and ideas on Prevention's online site. They have a health tracker that you can use to keep focused and see your progress. http://buzz.prevention.com

Good luck!
