Why choose Exercise ?

Exercise is the best way of healthy weight loss with no side effects.  Regular exercise helps you burn fats and gain muscle tissues. You can lose weight in a natural way this way as it increases the production of burning enzymes by the body. It helps you maintain physical fitness and more importantly, your health. 

The many benefits include stimulation of the immune system and maintenance of healthy bone density and body mass index (BMI). When your body is deprived from being physically active, it can potentially lead to significant risks for many health problems such as cardiovascular diseases. Besides that, exercise reduces cholesterol level that in turn avoids diabetes and heart diseases.

Mentally and emotionally, it can also help you feel happier and lighter. Exercise battles against stress, anxiety and depression, even insomnia.

One of the preferable traits of exercise is the flexibility and different variety of exercise we can try out. You can go as easy as doing household chores or as hard as a 5km sprint. Overall there are three types of exercise that differs in how they affect the human body: flexibility involving stretching movements, aerobic involving heavy movement such as running and cycling, and anaerobic which is to do with weight and functional training.  Whichever type that you choose, it is always important to have fun and mix things up to avoid repetitive movement that can either bore you to tears or minimize the effect it has on your body over time. One of the best ways to enjoy can be by doing things with a partner or in group.

Why choose DIET?

· Replace fizzy drinks and fruit cordials with water.

· Swap whole milk for semi-skimmed, or semi-skimmed for skimmed.

· Eat less lunch than usual. For example, make your own sandwich and 

limit the use of margarine or butter and full-fat mayonnaise (store-bought

sandwiches often contain both).

· Stop taking sugar in tea and coffee.

· Have smaller portions of the food you enjoy.

· Avoid having a second helping at dinner.

· Cut out unhealthy treats – such as confectionary, sugary biscuits and crisps between meals.
