Best Beginners Exercises for Weight Loss and Fat Burning

Hi everyone this is Dr. Kenny.

When you're just starting out on your fat burning and weight loss exercise program the best type of exercises to do are low intensity exercise cardiovascular exercises like walking or bike riding.

Your goal is to perform 60 consecutive minutes of either walking or riding a bike with your target heart rate between 60 and 75% of your maximum heart rate. The reason why you have to perform this type of exercise for 60 straight minutes is because during the first 30 minutes of the exercise you will just be burning the sugar that is in your blood stream and making your heart healthy. From minute 31 on you will be burning fat and losing weight.

Now to figure out what your target heart rate is you would just subtract your age from 220 and that will give you your maximum heart rate. Then you just times your maximum heart rate time 60%, 65%, 70 and 75%.

Initially just keeping a target heart rate between 60 and 65% for maximal heart rate is enough to get you fat burning and losing weight then each time you have a plateau in your weight loss you would just increase it to the next level.

So as example I'm going to calculate the target heart rates for a 30-year-old person.

220-30 = 190 Maximum Heart Rate

190 × 60% = 114

190 × 65% = 123.5

190 × 70% = 133

190 × 75% = 142.5

So if you are 30 years old when you first start with this program you would like to keep your heart rate between 114 and 123 and this should burn fat off of your body and cause you to easily lose weight.

When you have weight loss plateau you would like to increase the intensity and keep your heart rate between 123 and 133.

At your next weight loss plateau try to keep your heart rate between 133 and 142.

Please remember that your goal is to do this exercise routine for 60 consecutive minutes.

But if you are not able to do 60 straight minutes of cardiovascular exercise just do what you can.

Remember Common Sense Dictates in any type of exercise program.

So just do what you can and gradually increase the amount of time that you can exercise.

This is usually the best and safest way to start your weight loss exercise program but it is always recommended that you check with your healthcare provider to make sure that this program is right for you.

If you need help with your program please call me at 215-821-7336.




Stop The Insane Crazy Exercises & Workouts – Learn Simple & Easy Weight Loss Exercises

Stop the crazy work outs!
Hello everyone this is Dr. Kenny and I am pleading with you to please stop the insanity and stop injuring yourself with these crazy high intensity workouts that promise you a tremendous amount of weight loss and Beach body in 30 days or less. Now I am telling you that it is possible to lose a significant amount of weight in 30 days but I am also telling you that you do not have to kill yourself in order to lose the weight. It is possible to lose weight safely and sensibly without hurting yourself and that's what our program is about.
The reason I am writing this article is because each and every day when I am working with our weight loss patients and I am customizing a simple and easy diet and exercise program for them more often than not they tell me that they had injured themselves either while exercising with a DVD program that they bought after seeing an infomercial on television or working with an inexperienced trainer who had the best intentions but pushed them to the extreme and they hurt themselves.
 In order to lose weight:
  • You do not have to exercise like an insane person performing super high intensity exercises each and every day.
  • You do not have to run 10 miles each and every day.
  • You do not have to starve yourself.
  • You do not have to have an expensive gym membership.
  • You do not have to spend a fortune on personal trainers.
  • You do know have to have fancy expensive exercise equipment.
  • You do not have to spend money on the latest and greatest exercise DVDs.
  • You do not have to push yourself to the point where you actually cause yourself harm by injuring yourself.
  • You do not have to spend a fortune on weight loss supplements and fat burners and all that other stuff that you see promoted on television and sold online and in stores that are in our local malls.
It's sad, but people come into our medical weight loss center and tell me all of the wonderful supplements that they are taking and the advice that they are getting from the salespeople working at the nutritional supplement stores. The problem is that they are spending quite a bit of money at the stores in the hopes of buying a product that will help them lose weight but the sad fact is that are still overweight.
Their body is still over weight but their pockets are much lighter.
Their pockets are much later because they are spending money on inferior nutritional supplements.
 Sadly, the nutritional company can sell a product that only contains a 1 to 3 percent of the nutritional product that is on the label of the bottle and the rest of the you are taking can be just filler products.
Just because I am curious I ask them what type of graduate degree does the person selling this product have. Most of the time I am told that the person that sold them the nutritional supplement and gave them all this fantastic advice is a high school or college kid and that they had a tremendous physique.
Well, I have nothing against high school or college kids because I have children that are in high school and in college. But let me tell you when you are in high school and in college your body's hormones are at their peak. And this means that during those high school and college years you can almost eat anything and just do a little bit of exercise and still have a great body.
Sadly as we get older it gets a bit more difficult to eat whatever we want and still have a tremendous Beach body physique. At the age of 49 my body doesn't recover from the crazy exercise routines that I did when I was a much younger man.
Past the age of 30 our body's chemistry and hormonal levels decrease. This means that we do not heal as quickly as we did when we were in our teens and 20s. So this means when you do all of those crazy super high intensity exercises you are just going to hurt herself if you are over 30 years old.
 But I am happy to tell you that you can still lose weight and be in great shape if you just exercise and eat smart.
In our medical weight loss center we help people that have to lose hundreds of pounds as well as people that only have to lose 30 to 50 pounds.
So it's just common sense, at least to me, that a person who has 100 pounds to lose is not going to do the same exercise program as a person that has to lose 50 pounds.
The fact is that the majority of our patients start with just a simple walking program and they lose a tremendous amount of weight and they don't hurt themselves.
So please if you are thinking of spending money on one of those crazy exercise DVDs, don't!

7 Weight Loss Tips

7 Weight Loss Tips from our Philadelphia Medical Weight Loss Center to lose weight fast.

Tip Number 1:
You should have a small portion of protein with each and every meal.
Tip Number 2:
Stay away from fried foods. When foods are fried it diminishes all the nutritional benefits of that particular food and it also adds a tremendous amount of calories and unhealthy fats. Better cooking methods include steaming, grilling, broiling and baking.
Tip Number 3:
You should be physically active each and every day. In order to lose weight it is not necessary to spend two hours in the gym every day. In fact you do not even have to have to gym membership. All you have to do is be active. The more physically active you are the more calories you burn during the day. You will also help develop good lean muscle and burn fat. You can take the stairs at work instead of using the elevator. You can ride a bicycle to work or to school. While you are watching your favorite television show it night you could actually be peddling on a stationary bike. You could also take a brisk walk around your neighborhood or your favorite local park. To achieve the maximum fat loss you should have a goal of performing some type of cardiovascular activity for 60 minutes each day.

Tip Number 4:
You should have your breakfast within the first 30 to 60 minutes of waking up. This will balance your body's chemistry and also put your body into fat burning mode for that day. If you do not eat during the first 30 to 60 minutes of waking up your body will go into starvation mode in the majority of the calories that you consumed during the day will be stored as fat. Please remember that you have to eat a good quality source of protein at breakfast. Coffee with extra cream and extra sugar and a jelly doughnut do not make up a healthy breakfast but they will make you terribly fat.

Tip Number 5:
You should drink at least 64 ounces of water every day. Your body needs to be properly hydrated in order to perform all of its normal activities. Without the right amount of water your body will not operate at its peak capacity.

Tip Number 6:
Do not be confused with all the different diet fads and 20 weight loss programs. So many people come into my office and are totally confused about what they really should be doing in order to be healthy and in order to be at a body weight that they would be happy with. Sadly this is because of all of the advertisements and infomercials that are on the television and on the Internet. The majority of these advertisements are just promoting weight loss programs, supplements or products that may give you a quick fix but eventually you will usually gained back all the weight you lost and probably even more than the weight you lost.

Tip Number 7:
If you really want to lose weight in a fast, safe and healthy way order to lose weight you should work with a healthcare professional that specializes in weight loss. In our medical weight loss program many of our patients do not have the slightest idea about what they really have to do to lose weight but this does not matter because we hold our patients by the hand and guide them step-by-step through their weight loss journey.
