Weight Loss: Exercise

Exercise :

The idea of the need to exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle is certainly not new, but exercise is probably the most important predictor of whether you will succeed at long term weight loss and weight loss maintenance. In order for exercise to be helpful in weight loss, you should strive for a minimum of five 30-minute sessions per week.

The good news, as far as I am concerned, is that recent research has shown that three 10-minute sessions in a day are as good as one 30-minute session. It is good news for me because I love the benefits that exercise brings but it can be so boring. That is why I prefer a number of short sessions instead of one long one.


The goal of exercise for weight loss is to burn more calories, although exercise offers many other benefits as well. How many calories you burn depends on the frequency, duration and intensity of your activities.

Even though regularly scheduled aerobic exercises are best for losing fat, any extra physical activity helps burn calories. And since lifestyle-related activities may be easier to fit into your day, think about ways you can increase your physical effort. For example, instead of taking the car, I now walk to the local shops and supermarket. Apart from the actual walking, carrying the bags back up the hill to our house is paying off. I have to admit, however, the walk back home is certainly not as brisk.
