It is very important for everyone to do exercises. If you are fitter, you will be less likely to have a heart attack or a stroke. You also reduce the significant amount of risk for diabetes and other life threatening disease. If you like to lose a few pounds, workout can surely help you accomplish your goals.
So many people eat when they are not hungry. They eat because eating is just one of their habits or they are just bored. It is shocking to learn that the amount they eat doesn’t have much to do with their actual hunger. Have you had an experience of constantly eating something while you watch television being a couch potato? I am sure many of you have. On the contrary, if you are very busy doing something important outside the house, you tend to consume much less food.
Those who don’t like to do workout complain that they get so starved after the exercise. That is just an excuse to stay away from the gym. It is scientifically proven that exercise doesn’t make your hungry. Many people may not agree with this scientific result because they really feel hungry after workout.
If you haven’t exercised and been inactive for a long time in your life and you just started to do workout, it is possible that you feel hungry after exercises. But, that should be just short term effect. If you stick with your workout routine for a few days, you probably won’t feel the hunger any longer and you will actually feel good and healthy. Those who stay with regular workout program are known to eat more healthy foods and feel good inside and outside.
Building muscles through exercise is very important. There have been lots of studies done on people who were on a diet. For most of them, the weight loss came from both fat loss (seventy five percents) and muscle loss (twenty five percents). It is not good to lose muscles during the weight loss. If you lose muscles, your metabolism rate will go down, which means your body cannot burn the calories as much as before. To develop more lean muscles in your body, you should do resistance training. If you have not been doing exercises and like to add a new physical activity to your daily life, make sure to consult with a doctor first.
Clearly, doing exercise regularly will help you lose weight, look better and become healthier. More importantly, it makes you feel better. Some psychologists use exercises for improving the moods of depressed patients. When you are in a good mood and having fun, you don’t feel that you are “working” to lose weight and reaching your health goals will be much easier for you.
