Exercise alone does not necessarily make you lose weight, but it will help you to slim down and reshape your body by decreasing fat and increasing muscle. Regular exercise:
- Helps you burn calories that you have consumed during meals
- Helps combat muscle loss that can occur when you lose weight
- Builds up your muscle tissue
- Increases the amount of calories that you burn. The more muscular you are, the more calories you burn.
Remember that exercising does not always lead to weight loss (muscle weighs more than fat), but your body will be more toned and slimmer (you will fit into your clothes better). In addition, exercise is an excellent way to relieve stress and tension.
