Weight loss is really simple, all you need to do is burn more calories then you consume. But putting this theory into practice is the hard part and all the information and disinformation about weight loss that is in the internet, magazines, TV and such, makes it even more difficult. On top of that most people are just too lazy and do not have the dictipline to exercise regularly and clean up their diets.
People get really confused about what kind of exercises they should do, for how long they should exercise, what are the dos and don´ts of exercising etc. And people make exercise a lot more complicated then it really is.
Exercise tips for weight loss
It really does not matter with what exercise you start out with and or which one burns the most amount of calories. The goal for any beginner is to exercise for at least 20 minutes a day for 3-4 times a week. If you choose to start with jogging for 20 minutes then you would burn about 222 calories. Do not worry too much just take action.
Some people think that exercise does not make you lose weight. That is somewhat true because if you do not create a deficit of calories then you will not lose weight even if you burn 500 calories per workout. Always count your calories in the kitchen and in the gym to so you know exactly if you have created the calorie deficit you need.
A big reason why so many people sooner or later give up, is that they do not make any progress anymore. The main reason why people do not make progress, is that they have hit a fat loss plateau. The key is always to push yourself and slowly step by step burn more calories. Burning 200 calories maybe good for a beginner but not good enough for a more advanced person.
You can either make your workouts longer, more intense or exercise more times a week, either way you need to burn more calories all the time with each workout.
