How much Cardio Needed Weight Loss

How Much Cardio is Needed for Weight Loss?

You’ve accepted the fact that if you want to lose weight, you’re going to have to up your game in terms of exercise. Some of us love to work out. Others aren’t as fond of having to head to the gym every evening or get up early to run every morning. Whether it’s your favorite activity or not, it’s necessary. Fortunately, many people find that the more they exercise, the more they love it. But how much is necessary if you’re doing it with a weight loss goal in mind.

There are three kinds of exercise most of us should be doing for our health, regardless of whether we want to lose weight, maintain or even gain. These are cardio, strength training, and flexibility (such as yoga). Keep reading this post

Dog Fitness equipment

Is Your Dog the Best Fitness “Equipment” You’ll Ever Have?

If you’re a dog owner, you may already have everything you need to get an amazing daily workout – or two – without having to spend a penny on fitness equipment. While you may be thinking that this is only a reference to the number of walks you could – and likely should – be taking with your furry family member, there’s actually more to it than that.

Walking is a great way to get your exercising started. If you’re not walking to exercise with your dog every day, begin today. Even if you’re out there for only fifteen minutes at the start, it’s something. This is important to both you and your dog.

Is it Safe for Pregnant Women to Lose Weight

Is it Safe for Pregnant Women to Lose Weight?

Most women gain quite a bit of weight while they’re pregnant. That said, “eating for two” and gaining a very large amount of weight, for instance, fifty pounds or more, isn’t exactly the type of weight gain that is typically considered healthy during a pregnancy. On the other hand, what about weight loss if you are already quite overweight when you become pregnant? Is it safe to try to lose the excess pounds at the same time that you’re gaining weight for the pregnancy?

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), it is perfectly acceptable for healthy women to keep up their workouts – or to begin them – in a fitness appropriate way. That said, activities should be carefully selected in order to avoid anything too strenuous or that could place you at risk of a fall. Keep reading this post

Banking Calories for Alcohol

Can You Lose Weight by Banking Calories for Alcohol?

One of the first things experts will tell you to cut out of your diet if you want to lose weight is alcohol.

Is there a way around it? After all, if the main concern about alcohol consumption is the number of calories it contains, wouldn’t that mean that you could save up your calories throughout the week and then have a few glasses on the weekend? Is it possible to bank your calories so you can use them later on for wine, beers, cocktails or another drink you’d like to enjoy? Keep reading this post
