Our expert says:
I have also heard this rather disheartening information about exercise and I disagree with the findings! If you watched The Biggest Loser SA TV show last year then there is no doubt that the combination of diet and exercise is the answer to weightloss and depending on the measures taken, massive weightloss. Other research has for example shown that slimmers who exercise stick to their diets more easily. and feel more motivated to persevere. Then there is the bonus that cardio or aerobic exercise (running, jogging, brisk walking, swimming, cycling, rowing or skipping) for 30 min or more per day will increase what is called your Basic Metabolic Rate (BMR) for up to 24 hours after exercise. The BMR requires up to 60% of your daily energy needs, so increase this factor by even a small percent is going to make a difference. Do continue with your exercise, because it will also make you trimmer and fitter and help to keep osteoporosis at bay.
