To lose one pound every week, you have to burn 3500 calories per week. That’s 500 calories per day. The right way to reduce calories, is to decrease food intake, and increase your exercise. Consider weight loss as a healthy lifestyle change, not a quick fix to lose a few pounds, so that you’ll look good for a special event. The idea is to lose it, and keep it off for good through healthy eating.
TOOLS TO MONITOR YOUR WORKOUTS
To help you get an accurate calorie count, get yourself a monitor, or counter. There are simple counters that have one feature, and more complex devices that have multiple features for more feedback. Buy only what you need.
- Heart Rate Monitor
- Calories Burned Monitor
- Pedometer and Calorie Counter
- Pedometer, Calories and Fat Burned Counter
- Steps, Distance, Walking, Hiking, Jogging, Running Monitor
WHERE TO BUY MONITORS AND COUNTERS
EXERCISING WITHOUT INJURY OR BOREDOM
In order to avoid repetitive stress injuries, to activate different muscle groups, and to keep your routine interesting, maintain variety in your exercise routine. Injuries aren’t fun, and boredom leads to drop out.
