Tip: The MOST Important Thing is…

Using exercise to help with your WEIGHT LOSS can be very effective.

In order to make it, there are a number of boxes you must tick: the exercise must CHALLENGE you, you should make it progressively tougher over time, it should last for 30 minutes to an hour and it should be something you enjoy doing.

All of these things are important, but there is one factor that is the MOST important factor if you want to be successful... CONSISTENCY.


Exercising once a week and thinking it'll help is like drinking water once a week to avoid dehydration - not a great strategy.

The effects of exercise are cumulative, and your body responds to the REPEATED stress of exercise by doing things like improving cardiovascular function, strengthening muscles and dropping excess fat.

If you go and exercise once, your body freaks out and prepares to make positive changes to cope with the stress better next time. You get really sore and really tired and then you don't go and do it again for weeks. Your body slowly heals and realises it was a flash-in-the-pan and decides to just stay the same.

So how often is ENOUGH?

If you're doing cardio-based exercise I would recommend 4 or 5 times per week once you are fit enough.

If you are doing resistance exercises, 3 times per week is fine. You just have to get out there and do it.
