Vegetarian running 2 miles a day, will i lose weight?

Vegetarian running 2 miles a day, will i lose weight?

Possibly: Even if you are a vegetarian, there are still plenty of foods that cause weight gain. The key is to burn more calories than what you take in. Keep a diary and have a plan, or better yet, seek out a personal trainer or a nutritionist that can help guide you. You may want to also cross-train. Lifting weights is a great way to burn calories if done correctly. ...Read more

Started exercising. .5 mile walk, .25 mile run. Enough to create cortisol? Had increased PVCs (benign) afterwards. Looking for correlation.

Started exercising.  .5 mile walk, .25 mile run.  Enough to create cortisol?  Had increased PVCs (benign) afterwards.  Looking for correlation.

PVC: If the PVCs haven't been worked up... Suggest it should be checked. PVCs occur in certain zones of your heart rate. Do a holter monitor and exercise with it, if not get a HR monitor for exercise. If after work up you don't have any suspicion of blocked arteries... Keep exercising and have fun getting fit. :) ...Read more

Will an hour of cardio a day (30 min elliptical + 30 min treadmill) and a restricted diet slim my legs down?

Will an hour of cardio a day (30 min elliptical + 30 min treadmill) and a restricted diet slim my legs down?

Spot reducing: Loosing weight in one area, e.g., legs, stomach, etc. doesn't happen well. We loose weight all over our bodies. Exercising your legs will change fat into muscle so they will have more definition and be stronger, which is positive. Above all, aim for overall wellness, stay neat, clean, treat others the way you would like to be treated. That is what makes us truly attractive. Peace & health. ...Read more

I added box jumps & hopping up stairs to my workouts. I REALLY enjoy them. I'm 40 & 250 lbs. Should I set a limit to prevent injury? doing 5x10 4 days

I added box jumps & hopping up stairs to my workouts. I REALLY enjoy them. I'm 40 & 250 lbs. Should I set a limit to prevent injury? doing 5x10 4 days

Whoa: Jumping at a weight of 250 pounds translated to 500 # of force through the knee. This is not a good idea. When you get your weight down to normal there is less concern. Weight training to build muscle will help strength and weight loss. Jumping may be added for sports specific training, or for agility, but not for weight loss. See a professional for personal training if you want help ...Read more

After a lower molar tooth extraction surgery w/ bone graft & stitches, when can I go back to a physical job moving tables & chairs & doing stairs?

Returning to work: It all depends how well you are feeling after the surgery. Pain is very subjective. You may be ready to work in a day, while someone else may need more time. Don't overdo it if you are feeling well. Talk to the doctor who did your surgery for any precautions you need to take even if you are doing well. ...Read more

Keep up the regular: exercise but you may want to vary the type of exercise and intensity while incorporating not only cardiovascular workouts of various types with periods of increased intensity during each workout but also include some weight training and flexibility while avoiding overuse injury by being very repetitive or rapidly getting onto an exercise routine without proper planning. Speak to your physician. ...Read more

Will 2.6 mile up hill running help burn fat faster?

Will 2.6 mile up hill running help burn fat faster?

Absolutely-Depending: The primary controls of body weight: food choices & quantity. Most calories are burned in repairing & maintaining our body, not exercise per-se. See: nusi.Org. 1 lb fat = 6-12 hrs intense workout. Exercise & building muscle mass can impact body fat over time: the more effort/work you expend (best make it fun so more likely to continue) & what you do most of the time have the most impact. ...Read more
