You didn't think you could starve your way to a better body, did you?

The healthiest, happiest, best-looking you is the one that results from eating more nutritious foods and pushing your body in ways it's become unaccustomed to being pushed! Exercise isn't just for kids.

In the same way that the secret to healthier eating is to make it doable - that is...

  • fit it into your schedule
  • fit it into your budget
  • make it taste good...

...the secret to adding exercise to your lifestyle is...

  • fit it into your schedule
  • fit it into your energy budget, and, most importantly...
  • make it feel good! (So you'll be happy to do it regularly.)

The purpose of this page is to get you thinking about forms of exercise you might not have thought about! Use these resources to find out more about the kind of workout that might be perfect for you.

Weight loss, exercise: say them together

As a dietitian/nutritionist, I know from experience that most people interested in losing weight think first and foremost about diet and dieting. But as someone who has to work at keeping weight off myself, I know from experience that exercise is just as important as diet!

Get in the habit of thinking of exercise too when you think of losing weight. Weight loss, exercise...like peanut butter and jelly!

(It's not just me saying this. See what the government has to say about weight loss and exercise.)
