Did You Know?
Exercise Burns More Fat Than Dieting
We all know that weight loss can be achieved through dieting, but what sort of weight are you losing? Research has shown that we lose muscle mass when dieting alone, instead of losing the fat we want to disappear. The answer to this problem is EXERCISE!
People that include exercise in their weight loss programs can double their reduction in fat, especially visceral fat. This type of fat is considered to be very dangerous since it can decrease organ function, such as the heart and liver, and increases the risk for heart disease. Exercise, particularly resistance training, also helps to increase and maintain muscle mass, which in turn increases the amount of calories we burn at rest. That's right- INCREASES CALORIE BURN WHILE RESTING!
No more excuses. Start resistance training today!
