Dr. Mermelstein has developed medication protocols that have assisted people losing weight and breaking through their weight loss plateaus.

In today’s article I’m going to review with you some of the best choices in the exercise routines that are focused on burning body fat and losing inches. Most people do not realize that certain type of exercises yield certain results.
If you are weight training and lifting heavy weights that will usually develop thick dense musculature and possibly cause a gain in body weight. And the amount of muscle that you may gain from this type of exercise routine is dependent upon whether you are a male or female, your age and hormone levels.
A young man of 20 years old is going to get different types of results compared to a more mature man of 55. The younger man because he has an abundance of hormones is going to develop muscle more quickly. The more mature man will still develop muscles but if his diet is not 100% perfect he will probably develop more of a bulky type of look.
This is why as we get older we need to change our exercise programs to accommodate the decrease in hormonal levels. I like to say that as we get older we must work out smarter to achieve our desired results.
And let’s not forget that since heavy weight training is breaking down muscle you will need to increase your calories and amounts of protein that you are eating to build the muscles backup. This of course is going to make you more hungry. For females it’s even more important to do the right type of exercise routines.
You can see that there are many things that need to be taken into consideration when designing an exercise program for a person. Many people are trying to burn body fat, lose pounds and inches and build muscle at the same time. Sadly, as we get older this is almost impossible to do.
That is why in our Philadelphia weight loss clinic we like to focus on first burning body fat, losing pounds and inches.
We have different phases; phase 1 is for burning body fat and losing weight. Phase 2 is for toning the body. In phase 1 we focused on losing pounds and inches by performing mostly low intensity exercises such as walking outside, on a treadmill or in your local mall at a somewhat brisk pace. You may also write a bike, either outside or a stationary bike in the comfort of your own home while watching television or at your gym. You can also follow along with a cardio class, and low intensity Zumba class or even a dance class. Just as long as you are moving your body at a brisk pace you are fine. With low intensity exercise usually during the first 30 minutes you are building up good heart health cardiovascular health and burning up the sugar that is in your bloodstream from all the food that you have been eating. Finally, at minute 31 you should start burning your own body fat.
That is why we usually suggest that people have a goal of increasing the amount of time that they are performing low intensity cardio to 60 minutes. When people start out with us they may only be able to walk for 10 – 15 minutes and that’s it they are finished. That is perfectly fine. You have to accept yourself as you are and be happy with what you are able to accomplish in regards to exercise. If you can only do 10 – 15 minutes of cardio vascular exercise today, except that, be happy and in two weeks try to increase the time that you are walking to 20 minutes. And just repeat this gradual increase over time.
You are trying to make yourself healthy by losing weight so accept the fact that this is going to be a journey and then it’s going to take time and it requires persistence, dedication and repetition. Be honest with yourself and set realistic goals. For some reason many people set these outrageous goals and then when they don’t achieve them they become discouraged and they stop eating well and exercising.
Let’s be kind to ourselves and let set small goals and over the course of time these tiny baby steps become giant steps. And of course the more days of the week that you perform some type of cardiovascular exercise the more conducive it is to achieving your weight loss goals. It is usually recommended that people perform some type of cardiovascular exercise at least 3 – 4 times a week.
In review in order to focus on losing weight, losing pounds and inches it is usually recommended that you perform some type of low intensity cardiovascular physical activity. Then for phase 2 we can begin the exercise routines that are designed specifically for toning your musculature. And that is another article so stay tuned.
