Exercise Is Important

Are you interested in losing weight? If you are, you may be in the process of developing a weight loss plan for yourself. For many individuals, a weight loss plan is a guide that they can follow and one that may help to give them motivation. If this is your first time developing a weight loss plan for yourself, it is important that you place a focus on exercise, as exercise is important component of weight loss.

Although it is nice to hear that exercise is an important part of a weight loss plan, you may be wondering exactly why that is. For your body to lose weight, you must see a reduction in your calorie intake. The amount of calories that you need to reduce, in order to lose weight, will all depend on your current weight and your hopeful weight loss goal. Unfortunately, this is where many individuals automatically assume that they can’t eat three meals a day and many actually just stop eating. This is not only dangerous to your health, but it can be deadly.

Instead of reducing your calorie intake by solely limiting the amount of foods that you eat, you can use exercise to your advantage. By exercising, you burn off calories. These are calories in which your body can use to help you lose weight. If you have a specific weight loss goal, like one that involves losing at least twenty pounds, you may want to focus on fun exercises or workouts, but also ones that burn the most calories. Adding exercise to your weight loss plan is a natural and a healthy way to lose weight.

Since it is important to incorporate to exercise into your weight loss plan, you may be wondering how you can go about doing so. In all honestly, there are an unlimited number of ways that you can go about using exercise to help you lose weight. For starters, you can buy a collection, even just a small collection, of exercise equipment. Exercise equipment can include items such as exercise balls, weights, a treadmill, a stair climber, and so forth. Even if you have limited financial resources, you should be able to find a number of exercise equipment pieces that are within your budget.

Although you should be able to find a number of exercise equipment pieces, including instructional workout DVDs, for affordable prices, you may be looking to limit your weight loss plan investments. If that is the case, you may want to take the time to examine your local gyms or fitness clubs. While some fitness clubs and gyms have relatively high membership fees, you can also find a number of them with affordable membership rates. It is also important to mention that many fitness clubs and gyms are open accommodating hours, often making it easy to exercise before work, after work, or even during a lunch break of yours.

Despite the fact that exercise is often associated with exercise equipment, like a treadmill, that is not all that exercise is about. Exercise can also involve something simple like going for a walk or taking the stairs instead of the elevator at work. If you would prefer to exercise, for free, in your spare time, you may want to consider finding an exercise buddy. This is a person who can workout with you, even if it just involves walking around your local shopping mall. Not only can you make a new friend or strengthen your relationship with one of your current friends, having an exercise buddy or an exercise partners often means that you are more likely to stick with your weight loss plan and achieve your weight loss goals.

As outlined above, it is extremely important that you incorporate exercise into your weight loss plan, especially if you are serious about losing weight and wish to do so in a healthy matter. With multiple ways to go about incorporating exercise into your weight loss plan, there really isn’t any excuse for not doing so.

Tellwut Online Survey Finds Only 32% Feel Eating Organically Grown Food Is Important


(PRWEB) October 29, 2014

With a rise in retail shelf space going to organically grown foods over the last few years, Tellwut’s online market research arm posed a number of questions to its Tellwutter community surrounding the importance of organic produce, along with the whys and why not’s. This online survey produced a number of interesting observations including the result that only 32% feel that organically grown food is an important factor when purchasing produce and with decided voters returning a split decision as to whether or not organic is healthier.

Organically farmed goods are produced in a way that adheres with the organic guidelines of various governments as well as international organizations. In basic terms an organically grown good is food that is produced in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner, without the use of chemical and or artificial pesticides. The organic food movement is a growing global trend, however the Tellwut survey found that while 32% felt it was important, 51% did not consider it to be a factor and 17% were undecided in regards to their organic consumption habits. An overwhelming 89% of members found organic foods to be too expensive, though prices do vary based on the item, location and season. On average organic goods appear to be 42% more expensive than their conventionally grown counterparts according to http://www.organic.com.

When asked the main reason for choosing to purchase organically grown food, 51% of members choose to do so because it is pesticide free which means that it is grown without the help of artificial pesticides, however it should be noted that organically grown produce still use pesticides, they are just considered ‘organic pesticides’ meaning that they are derived from natural sources. 28% of members also chose organic to support local farmers, while 17 percent felt it tasted better. Many members also referenced that organic was not genetically modified (GMO), an important factor to them.

Is organically grown food more nutritious than conventionally grown food? 33% of panel members did not agree, 34 % of panel members did agree, while the other 33% were unsure. There are hundreds of studies comparing the nutrient levels of organic vs. conventionally farmed goods, but according to a report produced by the Food Marketing Institute the USDA has found that organically grown food is not safer or more nutritional than its conventionally farmed equivalent, they only state that it is different in how it is grown, handled and processed.

61% of panel members felt that some produce is better to purchase organic than other produce. An article by Dan Shapley posted by Good Housekeeping magazine suggests that it is best to spend your money on organic fruits and vegetables which are thin skinned and have edible exteriors such as apples, tomatoes or grapes, versus produce like avocados which have outer layers. Interestingly 51% washed their fruits and vegetable in under 10 seconds, while 26% rinsed between 10 and 30 seconds and only 15% gave produce more than a 30 second rinse.

As one Tellwutter put it, “Organic is just another label to sell something at a higher price, while the jury is out on health benefits.” With sentiment like this it is not surprising that this online market research study found that the minority of 32% of panel members consider eating organic to be an important part of their diet and of those purchasing organic only 35% purchased more organic food this year when compared with last year, while 15% purchased less and 50% purchased the same.
