To Lose Body Weight, You Need to Change Your Nurtritional, Exercise and Lifestyle Habits
Healthy Exercise Habits
Being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight are both needed for good health, but they benefit health in different ways. Children, teens, adults, and the elderly—all can improve their health and well-being and have fun by including moderate amounts of physical activity in their daily lives.
Physical activity involves moving the body. A moderate physical activity is any activity that requires about as much energy as walking 2 miles in 30 minutes. Aim to accumulate at least 30 minutes (adults) or 60 minutes (children) of moderate physical activity most days of the week, preferably daily. If you already get 30 minutes of physical activity daily, you can gain even more health benefits by increasing the amount of time that you are physically active or by taking part in more vigorous activities. No matter what activity you choose, you can do it all at once, or spread it out over two or three times during the day. Make physical activity a regular part of your routine.
Choose activities that you enjoy and that you can do regularly. Some
people prefer activities that fit into their daily routine, like gardening
or taking extra trips up and down stairs. Others prefer a regular exercise
program, such as a physical activity program at their worksite. Some do
both. The important thing is to be physically active every day. Most adults
do not need to see their health care provider before starting to become
more physically active. However, if you are planning to start a vigorous
activity plan and have one or more of the conditions below, consult your
health care provider:
Health Benefits of Physical Activity
Compared with being very sedentary, being physically active for at least
30 minutes on most days of the week reduces the risk of developing or
dying of heart disease. It has other health
benefits as well. No one is too young or too old to enjoy the benefits
of regular physical activity. Two types of physical activity are especially
beneficial: Aerobic activities. These are activities that speed your heart
rate and breathing. They help cardiovascular fitness.
