How do I get the exercise needed?
I was advised by doctor to do more exercise after my medical check. My problems are
pre-obesity, high cholesterol and overweight. Due to heavy work, I can’t do
much exercise during weekday, weekend will be my rest days. How do I get the
exercise needed? Catherine.
I would need a little more information to really help. Get a fitness evaluation from a qualified personal trainer. They can help establish your strengths and weaknesses.
I give them to my clients at The Core Matrix free every 6weeks depending on there time frame.
In answer to your first question about making time for exercise here are a few small suggestions.
- First find support from friends, family members and the people who motivate and love you.
- When doing your shopping and or routine daily tasks, park your car purposely a little farther for a little walk.
- Take the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator.
- Start cutting out saturated fats imediatley, you want to lower LDL cholesterol and raise HDL cholesterol, starting with your diet. Contact me for a 7 day free trial of our Matrix Nutrtion Software . Click here for our login and demo
- Cut down on your portion sizes. Most Americans eat double portions or more.
- Start including more fuits vegtables and grains in your diet. Make your plate colorful with fruits and vegtable. (The more color the more variety of nutrients.)
- Subsitute red meats with saturated fat with baked fish or chicken.
- Move It! Even 30 minutes of physical activity five days a week (20 minutes three times a week for vigorous exercise, such as jogging) can help lower LDL cholesterol and raise HDL cholesterol – although more exercise is even better. It also helps you maintain an ideal weight, reducing your chance of developing clogged arteries. You don’t have to exercise for 30 minutes straight – you can break it up into 10-minute increments.
