Your Body is Designed to Fight Fat

Aug 4, 2008
Home is where your heart is. That old adage applies to the poetic meaning of heart and the physical meaning of heart. Your heart is the key to losing weight and having a happier home.

Exercise has been advertised as not being important anymore, with the invention of the ever-present diet pill. In advertising, this is the most untrue statement ever released. Without any, even the smallest form, exercise, there will be no weight loss.

In America, the average amount wanted to lose is 20 pounds. These people are the people who have been trying to work out but have not been successful in keeping their goal met after they are done with the diet. Exercise, eating right and self-control will get those 20 pounds gone for good.

That average 20 pounds will not be lost with just eating right and moving around a bit more than usual. Increases in adrenaline and muscle movement and growth with cardio and aerobic exercises increase blood flow and oxygen flow. To lose weight, these are the only true things that will help.

Cardio exercises are those that are performed with the heightening of the heart rate in mind. The ideal heart rate for optimal exercise is 220 minus your age times 75%. An example would be, a person who is aged 40 would have an optimal heart rate of 135 beats per minute because: 220-40=180*.75=135.

Exercising makes it difficult to count your heart beats. To do so, you must hold your wrist just above the thumb and count the beats for fifteen seconds. There is an easier way; as in getting a small electronic device that will do it for you.

There is another way to determine if you workout is right for you. If you can hold a conversation with a companion and you are not sweating, then you need to speed up the pace of your work out. If you cannot hold a conversation at all, then you need to tone down your work out.

As long as you are working up a sweat of some kind, then you are working your heart, this is the difference between cardio and aerobic exercises. In aerobic exercises, gardening and cycling are considered the same type of exercise. Getting your heart pumping is the key to aerobic exercises.

It is recommended that you work out using aerobic ideals for 10-20 minutes a day. If your goals are to lose more weight than just to trim down, a good work out, or exercise time, of 30-40 minutes a day is recommended. It is not necessary to workout everyday for hours on end to reach your results.

An average of 20 pounds can be lost depending upon the amount of time spent exercising. Give yourself at least a year to reach your goal if you have not been active for the last couple of years. An indication to take it easy in the beginning is any form of physical or heart defect.

As with anything medical, it is always important to speak to your medical professional before starting any program. Your doctor will know what amount of exercise is good for you. Your doctor could also give you a list of cardio or aerobic exercises that will be the most beneficial to your goal.
