Great 4 weight loss.: Jogging, any form of cardiovascular exercise for that matter, is great for weight loss. You can only eat so little, so adding exercise like jogging allows you to eat good quantities of healthy low-fat foods while still losing weight by helping your body metabolize the calories more efficiently and burn calories through the extra energy expenditure. Good idea!

Difficult: Bad news-it is hard to lose the bottom weight but you may still see some slimming if you lose enough weight. The good news: you are better off heart-wise with a heavy bottom than a heavy top.
