February 11, 2009.....Workout More to Lose Weight

Just read an article today indicating what I pretty much already knew, and that is the old stand by of 30 min of moderate exercise 5 times a week isn't going to cut it if you want to lose significant weight and keep it off. The American College of Sports Medicine has upped the amount to 50 min 5 times a week. This means moderate intensity, not the kind of workout where you don't break a sweat doing slow walking or 2lb dumbbell lifting. You have to push it...I notice it in gym all the time, most people aren't working out hard enough...if it's not a little bit uncomfortable then you're probably slacking.......The 30 min plan will only keep you from having more than 3% weight gain....which is almost 5 lbs a year for a 150 lb person........So work harder...even when it's hard you have to push yourself and push yourself away from those foods you love more often.
