Staying Toned After Weight Loss

You can lose weight without exercise, but... -------------------------------------------- It is important to note that you can lose weight without exercise by modifying your diet. People lose weight allrepparttar time without exercise by reducing caloric intake. In fact, in virtually all studies of weight loss, people who diet ALWAYS lose more weight than people who exercise. If you ask those same people to diet AND exercise, they lose a little more weight thanrepparttar 137019 dieters alone, but not that much. Why is this? This is due to muscle weights more than fat. With more muscle mass, your body will turn to fat as its energy source and burnrepparttar 137020 fat for energy. As a pound of fat can be five timesrepparttar 137021 size of a pound of muscle, you can keeprepparttar 137022 same weight, yet look trimmer and healthier, as lean muscle gives you a sleek, toned physique.

People who are most active are most successful ---------------------------------------------- In virtually every study of weight maintenance,repparttar 137023 people who are most active are most successful in maintaining weight loss. Most scientists agree that exercise isrepparttar 137024 single best predictor of weight maintenance success.

Sorepparttar 137025 bottom line is to burn more calories than you consume, by either reducing your caloric intake, and then increasing your activity as you lose weight so byrepparttar 137026 time you get to your goal weight you can keep it off because you are active.

One final point: Aerobic and resistance exercise are also both very important for health. In fact, you can be healthy and fit if you exercise independent of body weight. In one very important study, overweight, fit people were healthier and lived longer than lean, unfit people. That's a very important point because weight loss can be slow, frustrating, and not everyone gets to an "ideal" weight. So keep uprepparttar 137027 exercise, watch your caloric intake, and results will follow.
