The & Immediate Effects of Exercise !

Img_5466THE 7 IMMEDIATE EFFECTS
OF EXERCISE

WHEN YOU WORK OUT, THIS WILL HAPPEN TODAY.
    1.    Exercise Releases Fat-Burning Hormones.  The hormones thyroxin (a thyroid hormone), norepinephrine (an adrenal hormone), and testosterone (a steroid hormone) are all immediately increased by exercise.  And they all radically invigorate the process of burning body fat. 
    Exercise changes the hormonal profiles of people with “sluggish” thyroid glands – one of the primary causes of gaining weight easily.
    Exercise also helps people who tend to have slow metabolisms, by stimulating the release of the adrenal hormone norepinephrine.
    In addition, exercise causes increased production of the male hormone

testosterone, which is critically important for building muscle mass and burning body fat. 

Womens’ bodies have testosterone – just not as much as mens’ bodies – and it’s a key element in not only energy and muscle-building, but also in enhancing sexual desire.  The higher amount of testosterone among males is the primary reason they tend to be less overweight than females.
    When all three of these hormones are released, they increase the efficiency and rate of the metabolism by up to 15%, and this lasts for several hours.  This is the main reason exercise keeps burning body fat even after you stop exercising.

    2.    Exercise burns calories.  In fact, the physical demands of the body are the only thing that burns calories.  To burn off one pound of body fat, you need to burn off about 3,500 calories.  Because it usually takes about one hour of moderate exercise to burn off 500 calories, a rule of thumb is that approximately one half- hour of exercise every day of the week burns off about one pound of body fat every two weeks.
    By the same token, if you avoid eating about 3,500 extra calories every two weeks, or about 250 per day, you can also lose about one pound of fat every two weeks.
    Therefore, if you exercise a half-hour a day, plus cut your food intake by about 250 calories per day, you can lose about one pound each week.


    3.    Exercise decreases hunger.  Sounds counter-intuitive, but it’s true.  The reason exercise decreases hunger is because it not only spurs production of the stimulating hormones thyroxin, norepinephrine, and testosterone, but also because it increases the levels of the stimulating neurotransmitter dopamine.  These body chemicals can kill hunger even better than eating can. 
    These same energizing chemicals can cause insomnia, though, if you exercise just before bedtime.  So try to work out in the morning. 
    Another way exercise kills hunger is by triggering the body to start burning body fat – instead of burning dietary calories.  When that process kicks in, it can knock out your hunger for hours.  In effect, you’re digesting your own fat.

    4.    Exercise regulates insulin levels.  The whole low-carb movement is based on the fact that carbohydrates (starch and sugar) causes spikes of excessive insulin production.  Having these spikes of insulin leads to hunger, overeating, and excessive storage of calories as body fat.   You can escape these spikes by avoiding carbs, or blocking starch calories.  But another great way to control insulin is with exercise.  Exercise makes the cells more sensitive to insulin, which helps hold down insulin production. 
    Even people who don’t lose weight from exercise still benefit tremendously from its effect on insulin, because it makes them less prone to diabetes, even if they’re still overweight.

    5.    Exercise boosts mood and mental function.  Exercise is practically as powerful as the best medications, such as antidepressants for fighting depression and anxiety.  This is mostly because it increases stimulating, energizing hormones, and raises the levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine.  Plus, it increases endorphin levels by about 500%.
    Improved mood, in turn, helps prevent overeating that’s due to emotional reasons.      In addition, exercise improves cognitive function, including memory and reasoning skills.  It’s so beneficial that it’s now considered a primary preventive measure against Alzheimers.

    6.    Exercise increases muscle mass, which accelerates body fat burning.  Muscle tissue burns up to 20% more calories than does body fat, even when the muscles are at rest.  This is one of the reasons men lose weight more easily than women: Their additional musculature is a veritable fat-burning furnace. 
    Women, though, can still make weight management easier by adding extra muscle. 
    Contrary to an old myth, this muscle will not become fat if exercise is discontinued – the size of the muscle will simply be reduced. 

    7.    Exercise prevents disease.  Exercise not only improves mood and energy levels, but also confers resistance to many diseases, including most of the deadly degenerative diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s.
    Exercise is exceptionally effective for preventing cardiovascular diseases.  In general, it’s even more beneficial for prevention than medication is. 
    It is also surprisingly effective for helping to reduce the risk of cancer.  Studies show that it decreases the risk of cancer of the reproductive organs by 250%, breast cancer by 200%, and colon cancer by 67%. 
    It is also effective for helping control chronic pain (because of its effects on neurotransmitters), and even helps prevent Alzheimer’s and other memory-loss diseases, such as multiple minor strokes.

    All of these effects begin to happen immediately, Today !


All the Best in Health!
