young people today are exercising very heavily in order to lose
weight or stay trim. However they are not so successful and end
up depressed and too exhausted to carry on their day to day activities
is, you are exercising for 3hrs. out of your 15hour day but the
question is how you are spending the remaining 12hrs. Many are so
exhausted that they spend the rest of the day resting, lying down
and reading or watching T.V, or sit at a desk or computer for hours
thereafter. If you are too tired to be active for the remaining12
hrs., and need to nap for 1-2 hrs., then your 3hrs. of heavy workout
is only going to defeat your ultimate purpose of weight loss. As
a teenager I used to do this, swim 1800 mts daily, cycle for 1-2hrs.
or jog for 45minutes daily but I never lost weight successfully.
I would be too tired most of the time and sometimes when I was too
tired even end up over eating and that would make it even worse.
If you want
to speed up your weight loss or to tone your body more efficiently
you may exercise in 2 sessions a day.30-45min. walk in the morning
and 20-30min. walk in the evening. Even 20min.morning and 20 min
evening can do wonders. This must be done for 7 days of the week
so you must have done 14 walks in a week. If you are already doing
45min. to 1hr. walk or 1hr. aerobics, in the morning do not cut
this down but add a 20min. walk in the evening.
variation is to mix a jog with your walk. You walk, for 3min. and
jog for 1min, then walk, jog, walk, jog and so on. Latest research
shows that this alternated speed of movement where you intersperse
your steady exercise level with spurts of more intensive exercise
is the most efficient way to burn fat.
I must however
mention that exercise alone is not the answer for weight loss. However
efficiently you exercise you have to combine it with 1. A very strict
avoidance of fatty food.A). All Fried food and all Nuts B). Butter,
Ghee, Cream, etc.
Ice cream, Cookies, Cakes, Desserts, Sweets, etc. 2. You need to
three meals balancing both carbohydrate and protein foods. 3. You
need to eat plenty of fiber in the form of whole cereals, fruits
and salads. If you follow this strictly for 3 months you could lose
8 to 10 kilos of weight.
Last but not
the least, drink 2 to 3 lts of water daily. The miracle formula
for fitness is walk, water, and diet, together.
