Increase your muscle (lean) body mass !
Im often asked – Doc ! - how can I reduce my body fat?
Relaxing is fine,
exercising is good,
increasing muscle mass is better.
Your body and hormone system is built to be on the move and not sitting in front of the TV drinking beer. Increasing lean mass is important because it reduces your body fat and increases your metabolic rate.
If you move your behind (perform cardiovascular exercise) most days of the week and lift (resistance exercises) only 2-4 days of the week, you will increase muscle mass while decreasing fat mass!
Less fat means less load on the body,better blood sugar control, less risk for the heart and better health in general.
So get out of that chair right now and walk the stairs, take a walk, swim, bike, just anything will do……..
- JUST DO IT !
