Exercise may sound like the obvious way to loose weight, but it often overlooked in favour of dieting alone. Exercise and dieting can be combined for optimal weight loss. If you are new to exercise or haven’t done anything in a while, this should be done under the supervision of a personal trainer.

A combination of weight training and cardiovascular exercise is the most effective way of losing weight.  To get the most out your workout, try and end your exercise session with a 10 minute run, as this will result in more fat burning. Weight training has the added benefit of helping to strengthen bones and can prevent osteoporosis in later life. Studies have found that weight training can actually burn more calories than cardiovascular exercise alone.What are the benefits of exercise for weight loss

If you are not a big fan of going to the gym or walking, why not take up a sport. Basically any activity that results in movement is an effective way to lose weight. Swimming is a very good form of exercise, as it provides a workout for your whole body. Sports such as tennis, badminton and squash or dancing are a good form of cardiovascular exercise.
