Aerobic Exercise Topic Guide
Aerobic Exercise: Aerobic exercise is moderate physical activity that's sustained for a few minutes with the goal of improving health. Walking, biking, swimming, dancing, and jogging are examples of aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise has many benefits, including improving bone density, endurance, HDL, weight control, insulin resistance, balance, and odds of surviving a heart attack and reducing blood pressure, cancer risk, body fat, and triglycerides.
Weight Loss Obesity is simply the accumulation of excess body fat. It is much more than that, however. Obesity is a chronic (long-term) disease that is very difficult to treat. It takes 3,500 extra calories to gain 1 pound. To lose weight, you must eat 3,500 calories less than you need, say 500 calories per day for one week, to lose 1 pound.
