Exercise Plans For Weight Loss

Trying to lose weight through increased activity alone is tough to do. To lose a pound in a week’s time – strictly through exercise – you’d need to burn up an extra 500 calories a day, above and beyond your current activity level.  That’s no small task.  You’d need to hike uphill for an hour with a 10-pound backpack or swim laps for 90 minutes – without stopping. Trying to lose weight only through increased activity – or only by cutting your calories – won’t be nearly as effective as a combination of diet and exercise.

Strength training can help to increase metabolic rate.  When people think ‘exercise’, they usually think aerobic exercise, like biking, swimming or jogging.  But strength training is important, too – in part because it helps to build lean body mass, which can bump up your metabolic rate and help offset the drop in calorie burn that takes place when you cut your calories.

The New 24 Fit Program provides a home exercise routine, combining metabolic and strength training workouts alongside a personalised nutrition program.

The  home exercise program was developed by Herbalife with the help of Robert Forster, a 2well-known physical therapist and performance specialist. Herbalife24FIT trains your body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates for more efficient energy usage. It makes you a “better butter burner.”
