Why is Exercise Important?In order to stay fit and healthy, both physically and mentally, we need to move about. Our bodies are designed in such a way that they move. If you are sitting at a desk all day, in front of the television or computer for hours on end or incapacitated that you are confined to a chair or even to bed your circulation slows down. Circulation is the movement of the flow of blood throughout your body. The circulatory system moves nutrients, gases, and wastes to and from all the cells, helps fight diseases and helps stabilize body temperature. The basic action of the blood moving from cell to cell is of great importance to your health and longevity. Therefore, exercise is important to get the nutrients into the cells, help eliminate waste products and get more oxygen to your body. Think of your body cells like re-chargeable batteries. If they are not fully charged the body does not work at its full potential. By gently working you muscles, to begin with, your body will get stronger. The stronger it gets the more you can do and the fitter and healthier you become. People exercise for one of 3 reasons; The first is that the person is overweight and the only way to lose those extra pounds will be to reduce ones calorie intake and at the same time workout in the gym or simply get more active. The second is that the person is underweight and the only way to add extra pounds is to have more calories in ones diet and workout. The third is just for fun and to keep that person in shape. If your intention is to lose weight then you will need to do more than the exercises in this book.

What Are the Benefits of Exercise?Some of the benefits of exercise have already been mentioned but there is more to being fitter and healthier. Exercise affects us mentally which can have an impact on our immune system. The immune system is very complex and is covered in many other books so won't be explained in detail here. Suffice to say that how we think and feel affects our immune system and exercise helps to strengthen it. That's because a positive affect on your body will have the same positive affect on your mind. It will enable you to concentrate better and hold your attention for longer periods of time. Not only that, but gentle, regular exercises can have a real impact and make you less vulnerable to infection and long term disease. It also can reduce long-term stress, which is damaging to the body, so that you become better at dealing with stress in your life. When you are feeling sluggish, can't focus or concentrate and are continually stressed your mental and physical health begins to suffer. Regular gentle exercise is a real boost to your physical, mental and emotional well-being. You will start to look at life in a fresh way and enjoy things again. You'll experience the pleasures and joys of life, however small, in a totally different way and have a real zest for living. Evidence shows that regular exercise can: 1. Increase levels of HDL or "good" cholesterol. 2. Lower high blood pressure. 3. Help improve body composition by burning fat. 4. Promote healthy blood sugar levels. 5. Promote bone density.

6. Boost the immune system. 7. Improve mood and reduce the chance of depression. Generally speaking, the greater your stamina, the greater are the health benefits. If you want to improve your stamina, it's important to start gently, increasing the frequency of your activity before increasing how hard you exercise. It is advisable to exercise regularly with a reasonable diet. A person can consult with a dietician or a health professional to really help plan a good diet program. It starts by evaluating the lifestyle and the health of the patient before any program can be made. Afterwards, this is thoroughly discussed and recommended to the person, which usually consists of an eating plan and an exercise program that does not require the use of supplements or one to purchase any expensive fitness equipment. A good diet should have food from all the food groups. This is made up by 2 things. The first is carbohydrates. The food that a person consumes should have vitamins, minerals and fiber. A lot of this can come from oats, rice, potatoes and cereals. The best still come from vegetables and fruits since these have phytochemicals, enzymes and micronutrients that are essential for a healthy diet. The second is fat which can come from mono and poly saturated food sources rather than animal fats. Since fat contains more than double the number of calories in food, this should be taken in small quantities to gain or lose weight. Another way to stay healthy is to give up some vices. Most people smoke and drink. Smoking has been proven to cause lung cancer

Exercise and Your Health, How Much Does it Really Help?You always hear people say, You need to exercise regularly to maintain your health, but just how much does exercise really do for your health overall? Are the health benefits of exercise really worth the effort it takes to exercise regularly? Cant you just eat better and still maintain your health just the same? Can anyone tell me what the real health benefits of exercise are or is it all just speculation based on heresy? Alright then, here are some really good reasons to consider for making exercise part of your healthy lifestyle: Americans spend more than $600 billion dollars per year for health care. That equals almost $3,000 for every single person in the whole population of the country. Sadly, this financial commitment has shown no signs of any decrease, nor has it produced fully acceptable results with regard to treating a wide variety of chronic health problems. Attempts have been made to identify the factors which have been major contributions to the epidemic of medical problems in our society today and a number of probable reasons for why so many people are so seemingly unhealthy have been named as; poor eating habits, a sedentary lifestyle, stress, poor health habits (i.e. smoking). At the same time, studies have been done to see what, if anything can be done to lower either the number or the severity of the medical problems affe
