You may not like what I’m about to say, but dieting alone will not help you to lose weight. You have to give your body exercise it needs. As I mentioned earlier, a couple of centuries ago, people were involved in a lot of manual labor.
This gave their bodies all exercise that was needed. But due to changed life styles, most of us do not have to engage in strenuous work. Most of us sit in front of computers all day long or engage in other sedentary works.
It is because of this that exercise becomes crucial for weight loss. Generally people do not gain weight till their early twenties. But once they cross 25 mark, then visible signs of weight gain can be seen everywhere and in mid section in particular.
There is something very important that you have to understand if you are really considering possibility of losing weight. You will have to consciously give your body required exercise that it needs for weight loss to be really effective.
Watching your diet alone is not going to yield results unless it is coupled with proper exercise. You have to make a conscious effort for this. And solution for this is a work out routine.
When we think about life in country, there is always something rosy about it. What is it that people in country have that we do not? When you ponder about it you find that those lucky souls eat good food, they work really hard, by work I mean real physical work and they have good night’s sleep. Of course they do not have all amenities and facilities that city life has to offer.
But city life comes with a lot of strings attached. People in cities are generally less healthy than people in country. One of reasons is pollution of course but other reason is because people in city do not get enough exercise.
Now, when I talk about healthy bodies please make no mistake about what I am referring to. I am not talking about Mr. Universe kind of body, bodies that we see on WWF.
I am talking about people who are fit. And fitness and exercise are just two sides of same coin. They both go hand in hand.
In order to stay fit you need exercise and in order to exercise you need to be fit. But just because you are not fit now, it does not mean that you shouldn’t exercise.
And just like that, just because you do not have any visible excess fat on your body right now, it does not mean that you need no exercise. Exercise is best way to keep obesity, cardio vascular disorders, hypertension and all those lifestyle-related disorders under control.
First of all let us get one point straight, exercise does not necessarily mean pumping metal. If you do have time to go to a gymnasium everyday, then that is well and good.
But I suppose most of us do not have time for a regular work out in a gym. So other alternative is to do it at home of course.
