What should I keep in mind when exercising for weight loss?

When trying to lose weight, it's important to keep a few things in mind to make the most of your workouts and maximise weight loss. First, make sure you're getting enough exercise, at least 30 minutes a day and preferably more. Exercise at an intensity that is challenging for you and don't forget to warm up and cool down after workouts. Pushing yourself is necessary to see results, but don't overdo it as it can lead to injury or burnout.

Be consistent with your workouts, aim for at least three times a week. Exercise will only help you lose weight if you're doing it regularly. Ask your Mosh doctor about putting together a sustainable workout routine and schedule that suits your body.

In addition to exercise, diet also plays a crucial role in weight loss. Eat healthy foods and avoid processed, sugary, and fatty foods as much as possible. Make sure you're getting enough protein, as it helps to keep your metabolism going and makes you feel full for a longer time.

What are the best exercises for burning calories?

The best exercises for burning calories vary depending on factors such as your current fitness level, desired fitness goals, and available equipment. If you're just starting out on your fitness journey, it's best to take it slow and experiment with different types of workouts paired with a healthy diet to see what works for you and what doesn't.

Some general exercises that are effective for burning calories include high-intensity exercises that involve multiple muscle groups, such as aerobic, cardiovascular, and strength-training exercises. Cardio exercises like running, biking, and swimming are great for burning calories, as are strength-training exercises like squats, lunges, and push-ups.[3]

Losing weight can be challenging, and it's normal to feel like you're not making progress. To help you stay motivated, Mosh offers unlimited ongoing support from doctors and nurses, and access to a supportive virtual community of people with the same goal. Mosh also provides comprehensive progress trackers.

Mosh offers two types of weight loss programs: the Dadbod Program, which includes supplement shakes, weekly meal plan guides, a comprehensive dashboard, and access to the supportive community, and the Bigbod Program, which offers all the benefits of the Dadbod Program, but also includes unlimited consultations with a doctor and the ability to text healthcare professionals anytime. Your subscription price also includes the pharmacy costs and postage costs of any supplements or medications you agree to take to aid in your weight loss. Products take four to seven days from the date of payment to be delivered and refills are provided as needed.

Can I still lose weight by exercising at home?

You can still lose weight by exercising at home. In fact, you may even find it easier to lose weight by exercising at home because you can better control your environment and eliminate distractions.

If you're serious about losing weight, create a plan that includes exercises that will help you burn the most calories. Cardio exercises like running, biking, and swimming are great for this. But don't forget about strength training, as it can help you build muscle, which in turn helps you burn more calories both during and after your workouts. You can start by doing thirty minutes of cardio three days a week and then add two or three strength-training sessions to your weekly routine. As you get stronger and more fit, you can gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts.
