Weight Loss Tip #4: Burn it off with cardio
Like it or not, it takes a good walk or run around the park to burn fat. Cardiovascular exercise or cardio is a necessity for burning fat and keeping it off. The good news: You can choose what cardio works for you and what you like to do.
TIP: if you only have ten minutes to walk in the morning and ten minutes when you get home, that’s the same as walking twenty minutes in one stretch. You don’t need a huge block of time to get the benefit of cardio.
TIP: If you hate to play tennis but love swimming, by all means swim. You’ll be more likely to stick with it.
You do need to raise your heart rate for 30 minutes 3 – 5 times a week in order to truly benefit from a cardio exercise program. Regular physical activity can help you main an elevated metabolic rate, enabling you to burn off calories faster and keep off pounds longer.
