Step Two: Exercise
Exercise not only helps metabolize fat and burn
calories more efficiently, but it has been shown to reduce food
cravings for women with food addictions or women who binge on high-stress
foods prior to menstruation. It also helps stabilize blood sugar
levels, preserve body contours, tone muscles, and keep skin supple.
If you exercise less than three times a week, you need to increase
your level of physical activity. I recommend a brisk, 30-45 minute
walk three to five times a week to burn off enough calories to lose
a pound a weekprovided you aren’t loading up on doughnuts
or ice cream.
If you haven’t been exercising regularly, increase
your level of physical activity gradually until your body is conditioned
to the point where exercise is easier to do. Start with five or
ten minutes, and after a week or two, add ten minutes to each workout.
Lift weights a few times a week. It’s great for building muscle.
To get the most out of an exercise program, your
body needs to be in balance, and your dietary intake needs to support
your activity level. Some natural athletes, especially younger women,
can eat just about anything and have energy to burn. But most of
us need to think about what will best build energy and stamina for
the level of exercise we do.
