The Benefits of Exercise

This is more for me than for anyone else.  Real Appeal Session 2 was about “The Power Couple: Exercise and Nutrition”.  As part of the program, we received a book that goes over each session.  In that book, the following are all listed as reasons to exercise and keep moving.  If I ever need motivation, I just need to think back to this list!

  • Exercise causes you to lose more body fat, especially visceral fat, the deep belly fat that’s particularly harmful to health.
  • Exercise raises your metabolic rate.
  • Exercise lifts your mood, even before the pounds come off.  It is a natural depression fighter.
  • Exercise helps to trim inches even before the scale might move.
  • Exercise increases your endurance so you can keep up with your kids.
  • Regular exercise reduces the risk of cancer.
  • Regular exercise cuts the risk for heart disease.
  • Regular exercise reduces the risk of for type II diabetes and helps reverse pre-diabetes.
  • Regular exercise cuts the risk for osteoporosis, a bone-thinning disease.
  • Exercise helps the body avoid colds.
