GET FIT AND FEEL GOOD
When it comes to weight loss and exercise, myths abound. How can you separate fact from fiction?
We’ve all heard the fibs and fads about weight loss, such as you can live off chocolate as long as you go to the gym... ...or you can gorge on pizza as long as you have a couple of ‘good’ days. But that fact is, there’s no faddy way to lose weight. It’s all about eating healthily and exercising. As the days get darker, exercise doesn’t only help you lose weight, it can also lift your mood.
And as for those fibs and fads? For good health, aim to be active at a moderate intensity for 30 minutes, at least five times a week.
For weight loss, increase this to 50-60 minutes a day. Aim for musclestrengthening activity two or more days a week.
