Let’s help you find a form of exercise you’ll love so you can keep the weight off.
Diet and exercise are two sides of the weight loss coin. You could lose weight with diet alone but add exercise and activity into the mix and you’ll be much healthier. The key lies in finding a form of exercise you enjoy enough to do regularly.
How exercise helps you maintain your ideal weight
Once you have lost weight, you will want to stay at your new healthier body weight. That’s the sign of a successful weight loss journey. It can be a challenge but exercise will help.
Exercise expends energy and burns calories, which helps you stay in an energy balance. This is crucial if you want to maintain your weight.
Exercising will help you create a strong, healthy body. It’s important to maintain your lean muscle mass. Especially as you get older as we all lose muscle as we age. Use exercise to maintain your muscle and you will be able to control your weight and waistline.
Active people tend to make healthier lifestyle choices. If you’re someone who enjoys moving their body, you are also likely to eat a healthier diet, make better food choices, and look after yourself.
What type of exercise counts?
Here’s the best bit! You don’t have to do formal exercises and workouts to maintain your weight loss. If you want to go to the gym, do exercise classes, or play sport then that’s brilliant. If that kind of exercise isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry. Any activity counts. In fact, experts now think that staying active through everyday movement (like walking and doing manual chores) is more important!
Find an activity you enjoy, keep moving, and work up a sweat from time to time. It’s the key to a slim and healthy body for life.
