Can Weight Loss Be Fun?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

We all probably shudder at the thought of weight loss. Well it shouldn't be that stressful, and might actually be fun.

You should all be eating good healthy foods every day. At first we might feel hungry all the time because we are now eating smaller portions. Eventually your body will get used to the new you and will adapt. You might even eat more often during the day thus making the body burn fat instead of storing it. Wow, What a concept.

To help the body adjust to this new you, drinking more water at regular intervals will help the process.

For a lot of people, exercise is a four letter word, and should be avoided at all costs. I think deep down we all realize that there must be a combination of proper eating habits and regular exercise in our lives in order for us to reach out weight loss goals.

If you are really over weight exercise might be a bit tougher. Be encouraged though. There are exercises everyone can do. A simple walk to get started can be the beginnings of something very special. Start simple and over time work up to something more intense. It will come and you will be successful.

Add swimming and biking to your walking and you have three very good low impact forms of exercise that can improve your fitness levels, increase stamina and reduce body weight.

The key to exercise along with eating the right foods is your metabolism. It will increase fat burning in the body making losing weight easier. If you have trouble even walking consider swimming as a form of exercise. This is great for the heart rate and most certainly will give you more stamina. All great features in the ultimate goal of losing weight.

Using an eliptic machine either in a gym or in your own home is a great way to increase the positive results of exercise. Also Nordic walking where you are using both the upper and lower body in the same exercise doubles the amount of calories burned when done properly.

Nordic walking helps to use the muscles in the upper body giving you more strength and muscle tone giving you a real trim look over time. We all want that!

If you are a lot overweight using your upper body to help move forward takes a lot of stress off the lower body including the knees. Because of to much weight our joints can really take a beating when exercising.

For a lot of us running or jogging can be tough because of the impact on the ground for the knee joints. Nordic walking can be a great alternative. This is a great exercise, is easy to do and can be a lot of fun especially when done in a group setting.

Remember to get started combine exercise and a healthy diet program. This is a combination sport so to speak. Have fun and do it with a friend or with a group of friends.

You will be successful.
