The Hidden Price of Not Exercising is this weeks reading from my book, Becoming Slender For Life. Our bodies were never created to sit at a key board, or in the recliner with the remote or behind the wheel driving down the road. We were created to move. Weight loss hypnosis can help you to create the desire and motivation to exercise and be more active.
The Hidden Price of Not Exercising
This is an inescapable fact—physical activity is essential in any weight loss program. We live in a society with a microwave mentality that demands instant results. The American Council on Exercise is a great resource, and their Personal Trainer Manual is full of great information on exercise physiology. For example, did you know that weight loss without exercise can have a negative effect on body composition, especially if the weight is regained?
Someone who loses weight without exercise loses both lean and fat tissue. If they regain weight without exercising, more fat than lean is put back on. Exercise burns calories, speeds up metabolism and helps offset plateaus where weight loss slows down or even temporarily stops. Fat tissue is less active metabolically than lean tissue. Each time you lose weight and regain it without exercise, your metabolism requires fewer calories to function. So when you return to eating the same amount as before your last diet, you won’t maintain your weight but will gain more.
I recently saw on Facebook a wonderful t shirt – so great, I had to order one. It reads: “Ask your doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.” I giggle every time I think of that line. We hear all the TV commercials about prescription medications and asking if it that medicine is right for you – wouldn’t it be great if they pushed exercise and being more physically active?! Hypnosis for weight loss and be a great way to make exercise a regular component of your life. Hypnosis can make exercise right for you.
