Why Should You Exercise In The Morning?

Why Should You Exercise In The Morning?

Exercise is a bodily activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness and health. It strengthens the muscles and the cardiovascular system. Exercise promotes weight loss and for the purpose of spending leisure time. If I were to choose a part of the day to exercise it would be the morning. There are several facts that explain why morning is the best part of the day to burn those calories. This article states reasons why exercising in the morning is effective than any part of the day.
The first reason is that exercising in the morning gives one person more energy throughout the day. If you make it a daily habit to exercise in the morning your body will be used to the energy you have each day. Always plan to have your exercise for about 4- 5 times a week every morning to maintain a good fit and have optimum health. And other than that when you exercise in the evening it will be difficult for you to have your sleep or even exercising in the late afternoon. But when you exercise in the morning, throughout the evening you feel sleepy and by then you will have a good sleep. Exercising in the morning improves sleep.
Another reason is that people who consistently exercise in the morning, makes it a routine or a habit. It all involves the person’s Circadian rhythm. The Circadian rhythm is roughly a 24-hour cycle in the physiological processes of living beings or what people call as body-clock. For example, we are used to wake up at 5am. Then if we have done this consecutively, our body-clock is like an alarm waking us up nearly the same time every day. So when we discipline ourselves to wake up every day and exercise for 30 minutes to 2 hours a day in the morning then our body will get used to it. If you wake up different times in a day it will result in confusing your body, try to make every activity you have at a particular time every day and things will be easier for you without any reminder. No need for alarm clocks and to do list.
Lastly, exercising in the morning regulates one’s appetite for the whole day. It also “jump starts” your metabolism and keeping it up for hours promoting easier weight loss for people who wants to be slim and fit.
So now, start to make your schedule and plan a to do list then throw it after several weeks then you might see improvements in your lifestyle. After you have read the reasons why you should exercise in the morning then do so. Exercise is very helpful no matter how young and old you are. It makes the body feel lighter and for your heart to feel happier. You can even add sum twist while exercising, you could exercise in a park near to you and start by kissing the sunrise. Or bring some neighbors with you. Stroll within your village, by then you can even have bonding time with them. Always remember, every minute and second of your day is important, make the most out of it and spend it as you’ve always wished to. Always celebrate the minutes of your life and thank every morning you were able to wake up. read more

Fast Diets When You Want To Lose Weight Fast

Fast Diets When You Want To Lose Weight Fast

There are any number of “fast diets” out there for when you want to lose weight fast, but as you’ve probably already learned, most (if not all) of them are unhealthy and possibly even dangerous. Further, when you lose a few pounds using them (instead of a healthy, moderately paced weight loss plan) you almost always tend to put the weight back on. There’s nothing “long term” about a fast weight loss diet. These type diets aren’t meant to be used for long-haul fat loss maintenance. They are simply “quick fixes” intended for those who only need to lose a few pounds. read more

Uncover The Pros and Cons Of Fad Dieting

Uncover The Pros and Cons Of Fad Dieting

When was the last time you were tempted to try that fad diet you have found in the latest magazine that promises the world with fantastic fat losses and without doing a thing. What was it again; just take a couple of fat burning pills follow the diet and then bang! A brand new you in a couple of weeks.
The sad fact is they do not work, they just provide more suffering in your efforts to lose weight, and the only thing that you are losing is your hard earned money.
Firstly lets look at the latest fad diets on the scene at the moment, their pros and cons and then you will be shown how to save your time, money and unnecessary suffering by pointing you in the right direction for permanent weight loss.
The latest studies show that 90 per cent of fad dieters regained everything they had lost and even gained more weight within eighteen months.
The Atkins Diet.
The body burns carbohydrates and then fat for energy. This diet recommends limiting the intake of starchy, high carb foods so that the fat is burned first. So by eating meat, cheese and eggs and keeping bread and potatoes to a minimum, fat is lost.
Pros: Steak with cheese topping, Chocolate mocha ice cream and pork scratchings.
Cons: Studies show high protein diets lead to increased risk of heart disease, colon cancer, bad breath (halitosis) and constipation. Consuming more carbohydrate that can be used by the body will store this excess in fat cells.
The Zone Diet.
This diet claims to decrease hunger and boost energy by keeping your bodies eating habits in the zone or at its peak. Keeping all your meals and snacks in the ratio of 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein, and 30% fats does this.
Pros: Being a low calorie diet, you can’t help but lose weight.
Cons: Very difficult to adhere to the strict regime the diet requires. Will experience metabolism slow down because of low calories and will lead to starvation response, which will eat away at the muscle tissue while retaining the fat.
The Blood Group Diet.
By having a blood test and determining your blood group, this then tells you how you can absorb nutrients, thus you can plan your diet accordingly. Different blood groups can eat different food groups.
Pros: Another calorie restricting diet so weight will be lost.
Cons: There appears to be little clinical and scientific evidence behind this diet and by the elimination of whole food group’s important nutritional deficiencies are likely with long-term health problems encountered.
The Ashram Diet.
This diet is basically a very low calorie diet (near starvation), which is coupled with a very high intensity exercise regime. A sample of this diet would include: One boiled egg for breakfast, a green salad for lunch and a baked potato with salsa for dinner.
Pros: A very quick weight loss, 10 – 15 lbs in a week (Mostly muscle tissue and water).
Cons: Fast weight loss leads to many unpleasant side effects such as bad breath, bone loss, constipation, deprivation of nutrients (vitamins and minerals), muscle loss, metabolism slow down, headaches and poor sleep.
Who would want all these problems for the sake of quick weight loss where the weight will eventually be put back on and more in a couple of months?
The Hay Diet.
The main rule to follow for this diet is to not eat protein and carbohydrates together. Combination of these two foods together appears to prevent protein from being digested in the gut and can lead to an accumulation of toxins.
Vegetables and fruit form the bulk of the diet with very small portions of protein and carbs.
Pros: Plenty of fruit and veggies in the diet means plenty of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Cons: There doesn’t appear to be too much scientific evidence about food combinations and by limiting yourself to certain food groups you will miss out on important nutrients.
All these diets work because of a drastic cut in calories, when this happens our metabolic rate can be brought down in a matter of 36 hours by as much as 50% which means your body is now burning only half of your calories.
To compound matters further, hunger kicks in after a period of inadequate eating setting you up for over eating and binging.
Everyone is an individual so you have to be careful of diets that require you to set out what types of foods and quantities you have to eat at every meal. Just because a movie star lost weight on a fad diet doesn’t mean that you will.
Before starting a weight loss program take into account your age, fitness levels, activity levels and medical history.
Do yourself a favour and follow a real weight loss program including all the food groups, strength training, low level aerobics, a slight decrease in your daily calorie levels and a program that can be followed for life. read more
