The Importance of Toning Your Muscles While You Loose Weight

Aug 31, 2008
These days it seems like just about everyone is trying to lose weight, and there seems to be a diet or product out there for each individual. Many of these various products and diets claim they will teach you the weight loss secret that we are all dying to know. Some of the diets and products are successful, and some are not.

Most times, you do not need to buy any huge weight loss secrets to lose weight. The key is to watch what you consume. 3,500 calories equals one pound of gained weight. So to lose one pound a week, reduce your daily intake by 500 and it will add up. You might be saying to yourself, "Easier said than done." I hear yah!

Sticking with this plan has proven to be successful for many people and they have lost a lot of weight. These successful weight losers stuck with their plan through thick and thin. Some will have reduced more calories to speed up the weight loss process through diet alone while other people combine their diet with exercise to lose weight even faster. No matter how you choose to do it or what combination of exercise and reduced calorie intake you can make it to your goal weight.

In truth some people may have dropped a couple pounds without notice. This is discouraging because your body still looks the same to them. You may have less body fat, but because your body is not toned, the results are not noticeable. You can button your collar with comfort but that too is not noticed.

We can conclude that it is as important that you tone your muscles while you loose weight. If you haven't exercised in some time it is also important to start slowly. With the right combination of diet and exercise you will see results. You can't help it. Think of exercise and diet as your weight loss cure for a flabby body.

One way to start toning your muscles is to walk - just walk. Noting complicated or tricky - one foot in front of the other. Start by walking about thirty minutes three days a week. Then, as you begin to gain endurance, increase the distance or time. Walking will tone your muscles and help you lose even more weight.

You can tone specific parts of your body too! Light weights can tone your arms. Leg exercises like squats and lunges tone your legs, thighs and butt. Crunches work your abdominal muscles. Begin with ten repetitions of each and remember to start slow.

It's also important to know that when you are working on toning your muscles while you loose weight, you should alternate the days that you work on certain muscle groups. For example, do abdominal and arm exercises one day, and the next day do leg and butt exercises. This allows each muscle group to rest and repair for a day, which further aides in building muscle.
