Weight Loss And Running, Pros And Cons

The weight loss industry spends billions of dollars each year in advertising, and while many people lose weight, there is usually a problem maintaining their weight loss. Most people that lose a large amount of weight will end up gaining it all back over the next 2 or 3 years.

To help you maintain your weight loss, you should only lose 1 to 2 pounds a week which will help incorporate lifestyle changes and increase your chances of keeping the weight off.

Weight loss can promote great health benefits. Some of these are lowering your cholesterol and blood sugar levels, lower blood pressure and less stress on bones and joints.

There are many different ways to lose weight and maintain your weight loss, one of which is running. I found many different views of running, and here is just some of the information I found about running for weight loss...

Some people enjoy running to help lose weight and/or maintain their weight loss, but there are definitely pros and cons to running.

Running is an excellent way to burn calories and lose pounds. If you choose to run to help with your weight loss, you need to continue eating healthy and make sure that you burn more calories than you consume.

Make sure that you eat plenty of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and drink plenty of water. To lose 1 pound, you need to burn about 3500 calories. A 150 pound person will burn around 100 calories per mile. If you run to lose weight, you will want to run about 3 to 4 times a week, because burning 1,500 to 2,000 calories a week is recommended for maintaining weight loss .

On the other hand, running can be very hard on your body. Not stretching correctly before running or running distances greater than you are able to, can cause many injuries. Not everyone runs correctly and even if they do, running can cause joint pain, injury, and the break down of muscles. Your leg muscles can degenerate, and if you do not consume enough water, dehydration can cause hypothermia.

Running while wearing the wrong shoes or old shoes can also help cause many injuries. Make sure that when shopping for running shoes, you try on more than one brand, and make sure they are comfortable and have plenty of support.

There are plenty of other activities you can choose from for losing weight and maintaining your weight loss. Some of them are swimming, aerobics, riding a bicycle, playing sports and many more.
