01/02/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Sunday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 2. January 2014 16:46

Exercise is so important for long term health (not to mention keeping excess pounds that creep on year after year away).  Regular cardio and strength training make the difference:

-Reduce your risk for adult onset diabetes.  The more you work out, the greater your sensitivity to insulin.  Insulin lowers your blood sugar levels, reducing your risk of type 2 diabetes (Fitness Magazine, Nov/Dec. 20101).

-Weight bearing exercise helps build bone density.  This helps reduce your risk for osteoporosis.

-Regular workouts help fight belly fat by burning calories and building muscle.  Excess belly fat has been linked to increase rate of heart issues and a host of other health issues.

Tomorrow we will talk about some more reasons that the way of life we discuss here is the way to go if you want a healthy, energetic life.  Let’s explore it together.
