Exercise isn’t essential for weight loss but studies have shown that itbenefits weight maintenance. The ideal exercise is ANY exercise that you enjoy and will be happy doing for about 30 minutes every day.
Exercise helps reduce stress hormones, increase “happy” hormones andregulate many other hormones to help you maintain a healthy weight.
To avoid injuries, exercise should be chosen according to your physical abilities. The wrong exercise or over-exercising can undo all the benefits gained from your weight loss, so it’s important to find abalance.
The general recommendation is to perform some form of exercise, at least 30 minutes every day, with your heart ratein the “fat-burning zone”.
A combination of cardiovascular and resistance exercise is optimal.
A low to moderate intensity walk 5 to 7 days a week and a session of Pilates or Yoga once a week, will assist with long-term weight maintenance and provide a range of health benefits.
ALWAYS SEE YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING ANY EXERCISE PROGRAM
