Would taking online aerobics classes that are ten minutes each help me lose weight quickly?

Would taking online aerobics classes that are ten minutes each help me lose weight quickly?

?Maybe?, Slightly: Primary controls of body weight: food choices and quantity. Most calories are burned in repairing & maintaining our body, not exercise, see: nusi.Org. 1 lb fat = 6-12 hrs intense workout.

Hi, its the fourth day since my tooth extraction, is it normal for me to feel slight pain? When is it ok to return to aerobics class (its fast pace)

Normal: It is difficult to determine over the internet how difficult the extraction was.. Each one is different, and since people heal differently, it is hard to say. Sutures? Makes a difference. Ask your surgeon when you can resume activities, since they know your situation best... You usually can return to strenuous activities when the wound has healed. ...Read more
