Weight loss is something most people put as one of their goals for the new year. It’s up there with healthy eating, exercise and spending more time with the family. So what is this big link between exercise and weight loss anyway? Let’s take a look.
1. Increases cardiovascular fitness
2. Improves circulation
3. Increases lung capacity
4. Increases stroke volume
5. Strengthens muscles and bones
6. Improves joint movement and stability
7. Increases “happy-hormone” production
8. Increases the body’s metabolism
What do you need to do to lose weight effectively?
1. Adequate nutrition
2. Good circulation
3. Hydration of cells
4. Hormonal balance
5. A body free from parasitic infection
6. A fast and healthy metabolism (if you want to keep the weight off)
So where do the lines cross over? Exercise is definitely beneficial in the scheme of things. It improves your health and speeds up your metabolism in a healthy way which is one of the requirements for weight loss. But as you can see from the list above, exercise is definitely not the “be-all and end-all” of weight loss. If you are really serious about losing weight, I suggest that exercise should play SOME part in your efforts but it shouldn’t be the sole focus of your effort. Besides, without a clean body system and a good hormonal balance, you are likely to fail anyway.
Get the first things straight to start with and integrate exercise into your daily life to assist your goal. This means removing parasitic hosts from your intestinal lining, balancing your hormone levels and getting your nutritional intake to compliment your body’s needs (stop eating processed foods as much as possible).
