Some people say morning works for them without anything on their stomach, but you need to try it out for yourself. After you have determined the time and frequency you will be doing your fitness exercise, you can start by a 30-minute walking with a pedometer and increase the steps to 1000 weekly.
If you are unable to do walking, you can do swimming, biking, jogging, and rowing as alternative way but still you need to do it in a 30 minutes time duration. To further progress your fitness routine, you can use equipments in gyms. However, these exercises will result to nothing if you don’t stick with your diet plans; remember exercise plus diet will result to weight loss. Just some easy tips for your diet plan; try to eat more fiber and foods that are rich with anti oxidant. Regular calcium intake is also recommended to maintain bone integrity and then protein for muscle development and repair. Surely, after all of these exercises and diets you will see and feel the difference and you will lose that extra weight along with an increase on your self esteem and confidence.
