Very: Any form of exercise that pushes your pulse rate into an aerobic range (say 70% or your age max, 210-your age x. 7) is worth it; although it is also said that you need to work out for at least 20-30 minutes to get a real benefit;. ...Read more

If you walk fast or jog for a short amount if time, 2 minutes, is that dangerous for the baby who is only 1-2 weeks?
It's fine: It is fine, even healthy, to engage in brisk walking or mild jogging in the first trimester as long as you are feeling up to it. This action actually improves circulation and cardiac output, which is healthy for the baby. Don't start any significant exercise program that you have not already been involved in until you speak with or have first visit with your OB doctor. ...Read more
I used to have an old workout I created where I did 1000 push-ups a week and also weight trained and jogged/run. Is that overtaxing my body?
Workout: At 20 y/o, if you're training for something like an ironman or crossfit competition or competition, this is not over taxing. But if you haven't done this in a while, you'll see early on that you won't have the same stamina before. I hope this was helpful, if this was helpful, please vote for me.

I have an obesity, how can I recover this? I have tried to jog 5 km once a week but it seems too hard and messy. So, what food should I eat?
Diet and exercise.: Your first step would be to find a form of aerobic exercise that's not as "hard and messy", as without exercise the benefit of nutritional manipulation will be marginal. Then, you need healthy, low-fat, portion-controlled meals composed of complex carbs and lean proteins. Plenty of posts in my HealthTap feed about this, so search away!! ...Read more

Is it safe to jog 30 minutes, 3 days a week while taking appetite suppressants? I am a 50 year old female. I am taking appetite suppressants for a short time to lose about 20 pounds. Is it ok to jog 30 minutes, 3 days a week while taking them?
Yes: Yes as long as you have been evaluated by your prescribing doctor and he monitors your blood pressure and heart rate. It is often best to ease into exercise if you have been inactive. Start walking first. There is no need to jog which puts more stress on your joints, a problem if you are still quite heavy. And do some weight/muscle toning too. Both types of exercise are important to reduce loss of muscle as you lose weight and exercise seems to help keep the weight off. Exercise is encouraged with your dietary efforts even while on appetite suppressants like phentermine. ...Read more
