Is it safe to eat a low calorie diet and exercise 3-4 hours a day?

Is it safe to eat a low calorie diet and exercise 3-4 hours a day?

Discuss your concerns, plans & goals w/your family doc who knows most about you & your health. ...Read more

Low Carb and Aerobic: Lifestyle changes help more with HDL than ldl. Weight loss and exercise can increase HDL by up to 50%. The effect on LDL is usually less (10-20%).Most weight loss diets will improve hdl, with some evidence that a low carb diet is superior: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/20679559 aerobic exercise will also improve cholesterol: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/17533202. ...Read more

I just quit smoking. I want to start the hugh jackman "wolverine" diet and exercise plan. Is this plan to extream for someone who doesn't workout?

I just quit smoking. I want to start the hugh jackman "wolverine" diet and exercise plan. Is this plan to extream for someone who doesn't workout?

Unless you're hugh jackman, i suggest you go for 30-60 minutes of moderate exercise daily and about 2, 000 calories a day (1, 000 to 1200 if you're trying to lose weight) of which about 60-90 grams are protein. ...Read more
