Exercise

Although a lot of people say they don’t enjoy exercising, exercising does not mean running marathons or going to the gym 4 times per week. Exercise is very important in a healthy lifestyle and to help maintain weight loss, but it can become part of your lifestyle quite easily. Trying simple things like getting off the bus a stop early or walking up the stairs instead of taking the lift can burn an extra 100 calories a day, do this a few times per week and it will quickly add up!

We have a range of simple exercises you can do in the home to begin with which you can find below:
