Aerobics and Weights are a good path to fitness. Most people have a primary goal in beginning or continuing an exercise program. Health is the best goal supported by exercise, nutrition and rest.
A few years ago, man was a cave man. He walked several miles a day, lifted everything with all kinds of body motions, and only ate natural foods. Your body hasn’t learned to live differently for maintaining health.
If you don’t exercise it, it figures your old and read to die. If you don’t feed it, it believes you are in winter and starving so it holds onto fat. You have to trick the body into thinking your are an active cave man and eating well.
Aerobics Support Many Systems
Aerobics support many healthy characteristics. It improves cardiovascular, muscular, nervous, endoctrine, and immune systems by circulating nutrients, creating wastes, and rebuilding muscles. People don’t realize that endomysium fat builds around muscle if not exercised aerobically and prevents muscles from receiving and excreting nutrients.
Resistance Training Saves Muscle
Resistance training educates muscles to absorb sucrose, otherwise it all goes to adipose tissue. There is no wonder people who don’t exercise gain fat. Resistance training maintains or builds on muscle stripped by aerobic exercising. Aerobics strip muscle along with using fatty acids for fuel.
Nutrition is Crucial
In comes nutrition. Without adequate carbohydrates and protein, the body will use muscle for sucrose and feed on itself. If there are not adequate nutrients, the body will preserve fat and burn lean muscle tissue. 60% of sucrose converted from sugar by the liver is for brain food, so why starve your brain?
Timing is important. The body needs sucrose and protein fully digested before rigorous exercise. This means eating a few hours before exercise is important. Secondly the body needs the same meal after rigorous exercise or it begins to feed on itself. These are the main two meals to plan a day if you are a daily exerciser.
To lose weight (fat), walking 30 minutes a day for five days equals 150 minutes a week. This is a minimum fat burning routine. Walking twice a day is better and aiming for 300 minutes a week of aerobics is a great path to lose fat.
Adding resistance training conditions muscles to absorb glucose instead of letting it pass to adipose tissue. Building muscle increases metabolism which burns more calories at rest. Adequately feeding the body persuades it to let fat be used as fuel. Fatty acids are used along with glucose to provide energy to muscles and assist in repairing and rebuilding. The body expects this process to occur every day. You’re a cave man/woman.
Food and Water
Cave man didn’t have white bread, soda, or Twinkies so remember this nutritional fact. Vegetables and fruit are considered negative calories. They have enough enzymes to dissolve themselves and other food. Eating grains (which have vitamin B’s) helps enzymes in their metabolism process on carbohydrates, proteins, and fat.
Drinking water supplies the digestive system with adequate fuel to optimize its work. Water fuels muscles. Water helps the body repair so it can eliminate wastes and fat. If the body has a half ounce of water per pound of weight per day and you eat low glycemic non-inflammatory foods, weight will drip off your body. See The Plan by Lyn-Generet Recitas.
Fitness and health run together. Fitness is providing all the exercise and nutritional needs to optimize performance. Optimized performance can equal health subtracting any genetic predispositions to disease. Fitness and leanness are usually companions. Proper nutrition designed to feed the body what it needs and when it needs it, will build all your systems that operate autonomically (involuntary systems) while you live your life.
