Is Exercise Making You Fat?

Over exercising can actually make you fat because often it is stressful either because you re over doing it or because you are trying to fit it into your day. Stress produces cortisol and the more stressed you get the more you produce which inhibits your ability to lose weight.

You do not need to do lengthy exercise routines every day, instead opt for 2-3 times a week and replace a strenuous routine with something more relaxing like Yoga or Pilates.

Some of my favourite exercise DVD's are Zumba which has a variety of different levels and routines depending on how much time you have available.

I also like Pilates which is less strenuous but by no means less effective. You will be working the core muscles which help to improve posture, strengthen the back and abdominals.

My favourite DVD's can be found below:
