I’m a big fan of building as much movement into your everyday life as possible, like walking instead of driving or having an active hobby like gardening.
But a lot of my patients strive for a lean, toned look that can come with a regular aerobic exercise program, be it jogging or cycling/spinning or swimming or whatever.
As long as you don’t overdo it and exhaust yourself on a regular basis, all well and good, especially for your cardiovascular system.
For many people, this is a sure-fire route to discomfort that may linger long after they stand up.
Let’s face it: Long hours at the gym or hitting the pavement on distance running is a deal breaker for many of us. We all want to burn more calories to help out with weight loss and getting lean and shredded.
Whether you are a guy who’s looking to reveal your abs before beach season, or a woman who’s interested in toning up for summer poolside hangouts, maximizing your calorie burn is an absolute must. The great news is that there are plenty of effective exercises for burning calories you can easily work into your routine.
If you have high cholesterol, making lifestyle changes can be an essential part of managing it. That might include exercising more regularly, choosing healthier beverages, or changing your diet.
If you are watching what you eat, it’s not just a matter of avoiding foods that are bad for cholesterol, but also embracing those that can potentially help lower it.
That said, watching what you eat doesn’t have to mean eating less or being hungry; it just means making better food choices and establishing smart snacking habits to make sure you feel satisfied.
