Answers for Permanent Weight Loss

Permanent Weight Loss
Diet is key for weight loss but do ot overlook the workout. Often people get caught up in over general reasoning and media gimmicks. Here are answers to common questions to maintain permanent healthful
weight range.
1.  If I don’t look overweight, I should not need to exercise? Don't fool yourself into falling for this fitness fallacy. One barometer of healthful fitness level is body fat percentage, the amount of body fat in proportion to muscle mass. High body fat level may increase risks associated with heart disease, stroke, certain cancers and diabetes. The body is designed to move...just find an activity you enjoy.
2.  If I exercise daily, I should not have to watch what I eat, right? Here's another tall tale you should not believe. Even if you exercise regularly, you should still keep track of how much and what types of foods you’re eating. Regular exercise coupled with complete and healthy nutritional habits go hand-in-hand. Without one, the other has a limited effect.
3.  To lose weight and keep it off you must exercise hard all the time. 
Absolutely not. Just adding a short, brisk walk to your mornings can help you start shedding pounds right away. And, if the habit continues, the weight is more likely to stay off. Do only what you can comfortably do; eventually you’ll be able to do more for longer. What’s important is to do something you like and do it on a regular basis.
