Let's talk about exercise. It's an important factor in the weight loss process.
The Truth: There are many health benefits tied to exercise, and you can use exercise to boost weight loss. But remember, proper nutrition and increasing your daily activity must come first! After that, add in exercise. Over a period of weeks to months, build up to five moderate (or three vigorous) cardiovascular workouts per week of about 30 minutes each, and two strength training workouts per week that include all major muscle groups.
Exercise, a healthy diet and increased activity will help boost weight loss efforts, as long as you're still burning more calories than you're consuming.
