Is biking a good exercise for DVT patients?

Is biking a good exercise for DVT patients?

Exercise is good: As dr. Wright said, swimming might be better but biking is ok too, especially if you have a recumbent bicycle. Like dr. Accurso said, don't forget your helmet. As long as you are properly anticoagulated and you have the ok of your doctor, nearly any exercise is ok although mixed martial arts isn't a great idea.

Can walking 3 days a week for 1-2 hours be as beneficial as 30 minutes daily for weight loss along with a healthy diet?

Can walking 3 days a week for 1-2 hours be as beneficial as 30 minutes daily for weight loss along with a healthy diet?

Walking: 30 minutes of daily exercise is probably better than 1-2 hours occasionally. However, walking really won't do much for you. 30 min of real cardio exercise that gets you to maintain a target heart rate for 20-30 min is very effective for weight loss. Walking doesn't get you anywhere near this. You don't need to do 1-2 hrs or cardio either. Just 20-30 min daily will be great. ...Read more

For the purpose of losing weight, is walking daily for a mile more benefical than walking every other day for two miles?

3xper week: For weight loss - excercise is 15%, nutrition 35% detox 50%. Excercise is best if done 30 min 3 times per week. Daily excercise does not allow muscle to recover and repair. Atheletes do endurance training to build the activity on the contrary weight loss is injury, repair, rebuild. So it is better to walk every other day for 30 min. ...Read more

Is running good to lose weight for atleast 20 min everyday?

Is running good to lose weight for atleast 20 min everyday?

Long distance: Jogging, while not recommended by many because of the potential orthopedic problems, is possibly one of the best methods of losing fat. Low resistance, high repeititon, and long duration large muscle use burns calories while not bulking muscle. Twenty minutes may not be long enough to get to "fat burning" and if you use this method it should be at least 40-60 min 3x/week. ...Read more

See Dr., and then...: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Male 22. Is cardio exercise at 130bpm for 40mins a day enough to build stamina and heart benefits?

Male 22. Is cardio exercise at 130bpm for 40mins a day enough to build stamina and heart benefits?

Yes but..: Yes, that's good but, unless u r just starting, your best training zone may be a little higher. Look up aerobic training zones online + you'll see how to calculate target heart rate. To build speed + endurance, interval training (with short sprints added to an aerobic workout) is popular again. And don't forget to cross train a bit (mix up run, bike, swim, elliptical) to avoid overuse injury. ...Read more

Managed BP with medication.Alternate Fasting daily. Exercise regularly:HIIT. How risky/difficult to water fast for 2/3 days? Do I need medical help?

Water Fasting: As a nutritionist I support and believe in the benefits of transient fasting and caloric restriction. Both have been shown to increase life expectancy across species due to reduced metabolic demand. I do not support fasts that trigger a starvation metabolic stress response. You need nutrient calories and your brain needs glucose! A healthy 12 hour fast...stop eating at 8pm and breakfast at 8am! ...Read more
