You can go for Yoga. Eat non-fatty foods and do Yoga Regularly.
Are you allowed to walk? Walking is one of the best fat burning exercises. I have written a hub on this topic that you might find helpful called How to Exercise for Maximum Fat Burning.
Walk it off. Walking is better then running, it is easier on your joints and muscles, it increases your heart rate and gets the blood flowing without givng you a heart attack.
Also, for you, light stretching. It feels really good, and stretching dialates and constricts your muscles and it helps them breath. It also releases the free radicles that are stored up in your body and removing the toxins from your body also helps you lose the weight.
Yoga is really good. No you don't have to do moves like the "Eagle" to get a good work out, but balance and strenght coordination builds muscles. Muscles burn fat naturally.
All in all, I highly recomend just walking. Drinking a glass of water before you eat everytime, and getting plenty of rest.
I actually swear by the effectiveness of just walking, plus it is good for your mental.
Changing your eating habits doesn't have to be hard either. I removed condoments from my menue. Like mayonaise and ranch dressing. Instead I load up on other good stuff like pickles and tomatos and sprouts and using butter that is high in omegas (fake butter) cause they taste good too.
If you don't like whole wheat breads, I think wonder bread makes a whole wheat white bread. I would not recommend giving up carbs. Bread is good for you and it is filling. Of course I am not saying eat a lot of bread. Or whole wheat pastas. The best I have had is the Vons or Safeway brand called Organics because they cook up like regualr pasta and don't have that grittiness to them.
Hope its a start. Good luck.
I like to exercise, but never really do, however I want to be tone. I have found a simple, almost completly stress free exercise that only takes a few minutes a day and it works my stomach, back and those pesky love handles. All you need is a towel and you.
First you need to roll up a towel length ways and hold an end in each hand.
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart
Raise your arms above your head, like you were making a V
With your arms spread and keeping hold of the towel, lean to the right ONLY BENDING AT THE WAIST, do not move your lower half
Hold this for two or three seconds
Return to upright position
Lean to the left, again ONLY BENDING AT THE WAIST.
Hold for two or three seconds
Return to upright position
Do 12 to 15 repetitions
When first starting I found it easier to do one set of 1 reps a day. After I started getting used to using those newly found muscles I began doing two sets of reps a day, but go at your own pace. It is likely your sides and lower back muscles will feel tight the next day or two after first begining, don't let this discourage you, it means your muscles are working.
I hope this helps, It really is my favorite exercise and the only one i regularly stick too. LOL
Oh!! U need to take advice from Ramdev baba!!!! Great Indian Yoga expert Go through my HUB
I am also trying to lose weight around my tummy. I asked my doctor how to do this since I have been doing cardio, exercises, sit ups, weights etc. Nothing seems to help. She put me on a low carb diet. I have lost inches and 4 lbs. in about 2 weeks. I am very pleased. Keep in mind I do not need to lose a lot of weight, but really want to feel healthy and fit. My tummy has been a problem for me. I eat fruit for snacks, cottage cheese and canteloupe for breakfast( I add berries in season) and a small handful of almonds. I eat lots of veggies and lean meat, fish and chicken. Nothing WHITE ( flour) like bread, crackers, pretzels, etc. No potatoes or rice and no juices. I also cut out all sweets. I limit myself to one treat a week. IT works and I am pleased so far.
A Mediterranean style diet is perfect for me. Hope it works for you.
Hi all. You may lose weight by eating the right food like whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Limit your salt and reduce white sugar. Gradually, you'll lose weight as long as you have the discipline and determination.
i think the best thing you should do is a brisk walk:) which is good for you and could relax your body:)
You could try eating only fruit and whole grains until noon, fruit smoothies, vegetable juice, and oatmeal * The smoothie and vegetable juice can help you get a full day's servings of fruit/veggies and help with keeping you regular.
Sip ACV cocktail 3 times a day
Raw apple cider vinegar with the mother in it, and honey 2 tbs of both.
Do walk away the pounds, basically walk in place for 30 minutes or so. This workout will not make you sweat, or get your heart rate up too much. You will loose inches and pounds, if you do it continually. I hope this helps.
You will find something to do. Walking and the towel workouts are good.
