Regular exercise or physical activity helps many of the body’s systems function better, keeps heart disease, diabetes, and a host of other diseases at bay, and is a key ingredient for losing weight. If you’re not getting the regular exercise you need to have optimum health, you need to call the experts at Fitness Together today. We offer Tulsa personal trainers that can truly transform the way you go about your physical health. It’s never been a better time to find the Tulsa Personal Trainer you need to elevate your level of health and your ability to stay active. Being physically active on a regular basis:

If exercise and regular physical activity benefit the body, a sedentary lifestyle does the opposite, increasing the chances of becoming overweight and developing a number of chronic diseases. Despite all the good things going for it, only about 30 percent of adult Americans report they get regular physical activity during their leisure time, and about 40 percent of Americans say they get no leisure-time physical activity at all.
Being a couch potato may be harmful even for people who get regular exercise. Many studies find a strong link between television watching and obesity. Researchers followed more than 50,000 middle-aged women for six years, surveying their diet and activity habits. They found that for every two hours the women spent watching television each day, they had a 23 percent higher risk of becoming obese and 14 percent higher risk of developing diabetes. Interestingly, it didn’t matter if the women were avid exercisers: The more television they watched, the more likely they were to gain weight or develop diabetes, regardless of how much leisure-time activity and walking they did. Long hours of sitting at work also increased the risk of obesity and diabetes. More recently, studies have found that people who spend more time each day watching television, sitting, or riding in cars have a greater chance of dying early than people who spend less time on their duffs. Researchers speculate that sitting for hours on end may change peoples’ metabolism in ways that promote obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. It is also possible that sitting is a marker for a broader sedentary lifestyle.
If you don’t currently exercise and aren’t very active during the day, any increase in exercise or physical activity is good for you. Aerobic physical activity, any activity that causes a noticeable increase in your heart rate, is especially beneficial for disease prevention. Some studies show that walking briskly for even one to two hours a week starts to decrease the chances of having a heart attack or stroke, developing diabetes, or dying prematurely.
For most people, if your basic everyday diet is correct, then occasional cheat meals should have little effect. Most people try and cut out bad foods altogether. This can be harmful and even lead to binge eating. By adopting healthier day-to-day eating habits, it’s easier for you to become a healthier individual as a whole. If you are currently eating a typical American diet, you’re likely eating way too much empty carbohydrate and saturated fat, and not nearly enough quality vegetables, protein or Omega-3 fat, in proportion to the rest of your diet. Understand that if you are chronically vitamin D and Omega 3 deficient, with accompanying low/high/fluctuating blood sugar, fighting cravings with willpower alone will be difficult. That is why it’s important to avoid junk foods and instead eat nutrient dense foods.
A natural food store can be a trusted source for getting the right kind of proteins into your diet. Always make sure that you are finding grass fed, no growth hormone proteins. By just doing a little label reading, you will be lead you to quality protein, even in a grocery store. How many ingredients are there in your peanut butter for example? Understand that natural peanut butter only needs one ingredient, and no added fats, or sugar, just roasted peanuts! By the bottom of one jar of the real thing, your taste buds will have adjusted. By simply reading labels and understanding what you’re putting into your body, you will become healthier. Tulsa Personal Trainer said Fitness Together want to see you radically change the way you go about dieting and exercising. It is important to listen to your body. To the extent that you are unhealthy, it is often because you ignore what your body needs for the sake of convenience or cost. Learning to follow the cues your body gives you, as opposed to the cues your appetite gives you, can result in improved health.
