Is running a good exercise when trying to lose weight?

When it comes to losing weight we all know that its not just about the foods we eat but also the amount of exercise we do. The more vigorous the exercise the more calories you will burn, so therefore running can be useful when trying to lose weight and get fit.

When doing any sort of exercise it is important to do it carefully and try not to push yourself too quickly. You want to gradually build it up so that you are able to maintain that level of exercise. Push too hard and you may find that you injure yourself and have to stop altogether.

When it comes to eating, a balanced diet is the way to go. You should try and eat three healthy meals a day and cut down on sugars and processed foods as much as possible. It is very easy when exercising to over eat as often you can feel extremely hungry once you have finished. Make sure that you have a healthy snack or meal to eat once you have finished and always have a large glass of water as this will help you to feel full.  Keep track of how many calories you have burned during your workout and be sure to not consume additional calories above this.
