Take Very Good
Care of YouselvesDeuteronomy 4:15



It is much harder to lose
weight if you don't exercise as well. Studies show that a half-hour walk every
day significantly increases the body's metabolism, thereby greatly facilitating
weight loss. Choose an exercise program that suits your age, health, and
temperament. Some people love swimming, others find low-impact aerobics to be a
great release, and still others are content with a brisk walk. If you find these
boring, try joining a fitness studio with state-of-the-art equipment. The music
and social stimulation are bound to get you going! Or put together a group of
walkers.


Exercise has tremendous
benefits beyond weight loss. It helps your digestion, helps you sleep better,
and keeps you more alert during your waking hours. It also helps keep you young
looking, and releases endorphins (the "feel-good" hormone), which helps prevent
certain diseases and increases stamina. What more could you ask for?

Remember that there are no
magic foods or supplements that can replace the right training and the right
diet. The foundation of any program, whether your goal is to control your blood
sugar, be healthier, lose weight, or gain muscle, is a combination of exercise
and a healthy diet that includes all the necessary nutrients.


Be sure to consult with
your physician before embarking on any new eating regimen or exercise
program.
