Benefits of Aerobic Exercise

To lose weight properly, the kind of weight loss that is long-lasting, you need to exercise.

Diets alone that severely restrict energy intake (which most do) trigger compensatory mechanisms that slow the metabolism and increase appetite.Your body wants and needs fuel. If it’s unsure when the next meal will come, it will look to conserve everything.

A recent study by the University of Copenhagen revealed that in groups of sedentary men, there was a significant advantage to incorporating moderate aerobic activity into the daily routine (just 30 minutes or about 300 calories). Interestingly enough, a similar compensatory mechanism was exhibited by those who exercised at a higher intensity (60 minutes/600 calories).

The group that exercised twice as long actually lost less weight than those who were placed on the moderate intensity regime, even though they burned significantly more calories.

Hmm. The problem is that these previously sedentary men now became too active for their own good.

How is that possible? Without an adjustment period, these new stressors place a significant toll on the body. It’s reluctant to break down too much, too quickly, and compensates by slowly putting the brakes on these processes.

In time, you can burn out, get sick, risk injury, or lose motivation. No one wants to feel physically and mentally depleted. Finding a new exercise routine can be invigorating…finding a way to utilize it in a way that makes sense for you is the challenge.

    I agree. Diet alone can't make you lose weight but you have to mix it with the proper exercise. Purely exercise also is not enough, you must mix it with proper diet and of course, enough sleep. So all of this is a package. If you want to lose weight, dont just diet or dont just exercise but do it both.
