What is the best exercise to lose weight?

If I told you what the best exercise you could do to lose weight....would you do it?
Ready?  I have the answer......are you sure you will do it?  Drum roll please!

The best exercise to lose weight is: "the exercise you'll do," says Timothy Church, MD, MPH, PhD, a professor at Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, La.

I have to give credit to Barbara Russi Sarnataro WebMD Weight Loss Clinic-Feature for the introduction to this blog...it was just too cute to not copy.

But......no truer words have ever been spoken.  When I wrote about eating to lose weight and one blog was to keep it simple....here is the simple way to exercise to lose weight.

ANYTHING you do is better than doing NOTHING.  If you walk it's better than sitting....it is that SIMPLE.  If you are exercising and you are not seeing any results than change it up....if you are walking, try jogging.  If you are taking an aerobic class, try adding a different class; i.e. step, Zumba, etc.  


Walk the dog, walk with your spouse....this is a great time to regroup from your workday, talk about the weeks' plan for dinners, date night ideas...anything.  JUST DO IT!  (thanks Nike for that great catch phrase).

Keep coming back to discuss what type of exercise burns more calories...but for now keep it simple and as Timothy Church says the best exercise you can do is the one you will do!!!!

What exercises do you do that work for you?
