Can You Achieve Long Term Weight Loss By Dancing?

Yes the good news is that it is possible to achieve long lasting weight loss by dancing but it depends on the routines you choose and how often you dance. The occasional waltz or attending an odd Salsa class is not going to be very effective.

Getting more exercise is always recommended but it isn't often easy to choose a form you enjoy. Not everyone likes going to the gym or has the motivation to use home workout DVDS and do their own sessions. But if you take up a form of exercise that you enjoy such as dancing you are far more likely to go to the classes. Having fun while losing weight is the best way to ensure your success. Not only will you get fitter but you will find that the excess pounds fall off faster when you are not watching your figure every five minutes. You can find bootcamps for weight loss that are designed around your favorite dance classes be it Salsa or Hip Hop. It is a lot of fun working out to music and it can be a very effective way to tone your arms, legs, butt and abs provided you listen to the instructor and follow their direction.

But you cannot depend on dancing alone to get your new figure. In order to achieve long term weight loss you must give your entire lifestyle an overhaul starting with the foods you eat. We all can make improvements in how and what we eat. If you currently follow the standard three meals a day approach, you could find that by switching to five or six smaller meals instead you will lose more weight. This assumes of course that you don't dig into five plates of fries!

Eating regular smaller meals will speed up your metabolism helping you to burn more calories. As you do more physical exercise you will need more energy and it is very important that you give your body the fuel it needs. Try keeping a food diary to see exactly what you eat and how it makes you feel. Some people will skip breakfast in a bid to lose weight but that actually sets them up for failure. They are far more likely to snack on unhealthy foods if they are hungry. Instead it is much better for your health and your waistline if you eat a proper breakfast. Your personal trainer at fitness bootcamp will be able to give you some guidance on what you should be eating. Certified personal trainers must study nutrition as part of their qualifications. Remember the more weight you lose, the better you will be able to dance and soon you won't want to restrict yourself to women only bootcamp but will want to show off your new toned body to the world.
