How to lose weight with exercising?

Anyone trying to lose weight often hears that you have to eat less and exercise more. They usually tell you to go for a long brisk walk 3-4 times a week,join a gym, take up jogging,dance classes,swimming, aerobic exercise classes,do sit-ups, press-ups, buy the latest fitness DVD and exercise to it for an hour every day or any number of ways to exercise. It's not very often that you get to hear about exercises you can do while sitting down.

Not everyone has the level of mobility that allow them to do any of those things. Severely overweight people can have real difficulty even with getting out of a chair let alone walking.

How exercise van help with weight loss is all dependent on burning calories. To put it simply a calorie is a unit of energy, usually heat energy. Although calories apply to anything containing energy we tend to think in terms of them applying to food. One calorie is the energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius. The metric equivalent of the calorie is the joule, which is often seen on food labels. It's easy to convert calories to joules as there are 4.2 joules in every calorie. However, we will use the word calorie as that is what most people know and look at on food labels and in measuring the amount of food they eat for weight loss.

When we use or 'burn' calories we increase the metabolism which helps to get rid of fat and lose weight.

Metabolism is the rate by which the body produces and consumes energy and calories and is partly determined by the amount of muscle we have. The more muscle the higher the metabolic rate.

Several factors affect the metabolism such as the amount of muscle tissue, frequency of meals, stress levels, activity levels, diet and stress. Loss of muscle due to not enough physical activity slows down the metabolic rate. The same applies with a decrease in physical activity that comes naturally with old age.
