Fitness Tips
• Losing weight is an arithmetic problem. Subtract 500 calories a day from your diet and add more
exercise, and you should lose a pound a week. Hard to believe, but yo-yo dieting does not slow down
Walk up the stairs for 5 minutes and burn 35 calories. Stand and you will lose 40 more calories per hour.
To achieve a higher muscle-to-fat ratio, you need to exercise with equipment such as weights,
an Xertube®, or your own body weight, such as push-ups.
Remember, it is not always how fast you do it but how far you go that counts. Running 6 MPH for 3 miles
burns about 348 calories, which is just 12 calories more than walking 4 MPH for 4 miles.
When the last 2 repetitions are not challenging you, it is time to use a heavier weight. It is important to
rest between workouts. Your muscles need time to repair and rebuild.
Use ice immediately after an injury to reduce pain, prevent swelling, and reduce muscle spasms. After 4
or 5 days, switch to heat to increase blood flow to the injured area and relax tight muscles.
• Gaining more than 20 pounds after the age of 18 increases a woman's risk of diabetes, hypertension,
heart disease, breast cancer, and stroke, according to many research studies.
Exercise prevents disease, alleviates depression, controls your weight, keeps your mind and body fit,
make your bones stronger, and is the answer to almost everything.
• Gaining 10–20 pounds increases your risk of hypertension. Losing the same amount lowers your
chances, according to the Annals of Internal Medicine.
• If you have trouble falling asleep, take a hot bath. Your body temperature drops after you get out of the
tub. Since your body temperature lowers right before sleep, researchers believe it helps you sleep faster.
• To relieve stress, put your hand on your abdomen and breathe in through your nose for 5 seconds as your
hand pushes your abdomen in. Hold it. Repeat. This helps you feel more calm and relaxed.
