Did you know that over 60% of Americans do not exercise regularly? Unforgiveable, given the choice of fitness equipment available for all ages and abilities.
And you CAN fight weight gain at all ages. And osteoporosis happens to women at ALL ages, without exercises to keep bones strong!
Before and during menopause, women gain weight around the hips, waist and stomach. And the weight accumulates FASTER in people without physical activity and poor diet. There is also a connection between fat and excess estrogen production.
The more body fat the body has, the higher the levels of estrogen in the woman’s body and estrogen increases the tendency to accumulate body fat.
The fact that our diet is so low in vegetables, fruits and fiber…does not help us. We produce more estrogen in our bodies than other cultures where their fat intake is lower.
Estrogen is made and stored in fatty tissues, so obesity is a major cause of estrogen dominance. Also, obesity is associated with an increased risk of developing breast, colon, endometrium, gallbladder and kidney cancers.
But YOU CAN do something to change these problems….!!
And the rewards are HUGE!
All body systems, organs, muscles and bones need to have exercise to supply nutrients and flush away waste products.
Ongoing news articles consistently point out that exercise reduces cancer risks, and reduces the risks of heart disease. Read more about what changes you should be making in nutrition.
Exercise also reduces inches, which means that a firm, lean body LOOKS slimmer – even if your weight remains the same.
But some people start exercise without any history of exercise, or without building up to the levels which are most productive.
Fitness equipment is the best way to increase lean body mass while decreasing overall body fat.
Fitness equipment allows you to start at a comfortable level – AND start AT HOME – rather than straining yourself to achieve what your body isn’t yet ready to accomplish.
Make sure you exercise at least 30 minutes to one hour of treadmill, stair climber, strider, bicycle or any other fitness equipment will reduce your risk of developing, high blood pressure, heart disease, breast cancer, colon cancer and diabetes.
You’ll be amazed at how invigorating it can be to exercise. And the better you feel, the more likely you are to work harder, get stronger and burn even more calories. Good luck and enjoy being fit!
And WHEN did you say you were getting started???
Exercise for women of all ages is crucial for bone strength and hormone balance. Spending an extended period of time in bed will cause women to experience bone loss due to inactivity.
As for hormone imbalance, according to Harvard-trained Dr. John R. Lee, “Estrogen is made and stored in fatty tissues, so obesity is a major cause of estrogen dominance.
Reducing or eliminating menopause symptoms, enhancing self-image, increasing body strength and having a positive outlook are more benefits of exercise and hormone balance.
