When it comes to health tips, many people want to know how to keep off
extra weight and stay fit. Here are some tips to keep in mind. Before
you start, speak with your physician to make a plan that is right for you.
Make sure you dedicate some time each day to staying active. In situations
where a person has an office job, a majority of the time is spent sitting
down at a computer. This means they may not be getting the activity that
their body needs. Spend at least 150 minutes per week of moderate to vigorous
activity to maintain a healthy body; and at least 300 minutes per week
for weight loss.
Stay energized with varied activities. Try walking, stretching, weight
lifting and body weight exercises. Take a walk after dinner, do squats
next to your desk, or focused stretching before bed. Adding variety will
keep you motivated and interested.
Exercise and vigorous activity can take a toll on the body; making it more
difficult to consistently exercise and keep weight off. Instead, know
when to take breaks to avoid injuries and plateaus. Allow 48 hours of
rest when exercising vigorously. Choose stretching, walking or low impact
activities on rest days to achieve maximum results.
