Good Health Begins with Diet and Exercise

By Perdita Del Peso

Diet and Exercise - Secrets Of Good Health

A balanced diet and physical activity are the two

time-tested secrets of good health. If you are overweight

and want to shed some pounds, regular exercise has

repeatedly proven itself as the most effective way to

achieve permanent weight loss. Though dieting can often help

you reach your weight loss goals quicker and more

drastically, you will eventually gain back all of the weight

lost during your diets once you get back into your old

eating habits. Rather than entering the cycle of yo-yo

dieting and rapid gains and losses, it is much more sensible

and healthy to gradually change your eating habits, and to

embark on a fun and consistent exercise program.

For years, a low-fat or low-calorie diet was considered the

only cure for obesity. However, these diets tended to

increase your appetite. Now, it's been determined that a

low-carb diet is more practical and effective. Low-carb

diets are low in carbohydrates and higher in proteins, fats

and oils. You appetite remains under control because fatty

foods satisfy the cravings most people have. By eating a

diet higher in fat actually increases weight loss faster

than if you were fasting. You should avoid trans-fats and

only eat fats such as olive oil and flax seed oil

A low-carb diet is primarily a high fat diet and an adequate

protein diet. It should be accompanied with adequate

physical activity, which does not necessarily mean tiring

yourself with workouts your body cannot take for long. On

the contrary, simple physical activity is sufficient,

especially if you are leading a sedentary lifestyle. Even

fifteen minutes of exercise a day can make a big difference

in how you look and feel. Once you begin to see the changes

taking place in your body, you will find enough motivation

to do more.

Always consult with your physician before starting any

exercise program. This will ensure your body can take the

strain of exercise. Your doctor will want to know how much

exercise you plan on doing and for how long.

If you have never embarked on an exercise program before,

you might consider joining a gym or hiring a personal

trainer. Most health clubs offer a wide variety of free

classes to their members, ranging from the more traditional

aerobics and stair-stepping classes to more specialized

classes like yoga and kickboxing. You can hire a private

trainer, or you can enlist the help of a health club

employee.

It is important to remember when exercising that you should

focus on getting healthy more than the numbers on your

scale. Many people gain a little weight when they first

begin an exercise program because they are building muscle.

As a rule, muscle weighs more than fat. As you gain muscle

you'll start burning more calories and fat. So even if you

choose not to diet and only exercise, you can still loose

weight. It is also important to eat well balanced healthy

meals to sustain you through your workout sessions.
