However, with that in mind, I'd like to share a Deep Dark secret that I've been harboring. I used to be Fat. No, Really. At my absolute heaviest, (March 21, 1996) I weighed 232 pounds, (as per the doctors scale!). Granted, I was pregnant, but I was also, FAT. I wasn't only unfit and unhealthy, I was absolutely miserable.
I read numerous bodybuilding and fitness websites trying to figure out what type of workout plan would work best for me. What I learned (and I am greatly simplifying) is that in order for your body to burn larger amounts calories, the larger muscle groups need to work. The more they work, the more calories they burn. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn.
Pretty simple stuff!
How much you need to workout entirely depends on your own lifestyle.
- Are you fairly active?
- Do you sit down most of the day (for your job)?
- Do you walk to work, drive?
- Are you trying to lose weight or maintain weight?
- Why are you getting fit?
