A good way to improve the shape of your body and figure is to increase your activity level. This increases calorie burn, protects against muscle loss and raises your resting metabolic rate. It keeps your body working efficiently, raises your motivation to lose weight and helps you to maintain a shaplier figure.
How Greater Activity Helps You to Reshape Your Body
Let’s say you drink a 10oz vanilla shake (approx 375 calories).
- If you jump rope, you can burn off all these calories in about 34 minutes.
- If you walk at 3mph, you can burn off these calories in about 75 minutes.
- In addition, exercise helps to raise your metabolic rate, which makes it easier to improve your body shape.
- Finally, exercise also helps you to lose weight by boosting your motivation to improve your body shape.
Note: all calorie-burn figures are approximate. They are based on a 150 pound woman. If you weigh more, you’ll burn more calories. If you weigh less, you’ll burn less calories.
How to Re-Shape Your Body
In order to re-shape your body and figure, you need to become more calorie conscious and active. In particular, you need to develop two important habits. Eat fewer calories; and use up more calories by increasing your regular daily exercise to about 30 minutes a day.
Incidentally, diet pills won’t help you to lose weight because they don’t help you develop better eating or exercise habits.
Re-Shape Your Body by Eliminating a Bad Weekly Habit
A ‘combination burrito’ contains about 418 calories.
It is not an ideal food if you want to re-shape your body.
By NOT eating a combination burrito, once a week, you save about 21,736 calories, per year.
This is the equivalent of 6.2 pounds of weight.
