The Mentality of Change How many times have we told ourselves that we want change? But whether they are girls or boys, kids who are active and move around a lot need more calories than kids who don't. If you eat more calories than you need, the body changes extra calories to fat. Too much fat can lead to being overweight and other health problems. Only your doctor can say if you are overweight, so check with him or her if you're concerned.
And never go on a diet without talking to your doctor!. High-calorie foods — such as sugary sodas, candy, and fast food — quickly add up to too many calories. Instead, eat a healthy, balanced diet.
Exercising and playing are really important, too, because physical activity burns calories. Your body needs calories just to operate — to keep your heart beating and your lungs breathing. As a kid, your body also needs calories and nutrients from a variety of foods to grow and develop.
And you burn off some calories without even thinking about it — by walking your dog or making your bed. But it is a great idea to play and be active for an 1 hour or more every day. Try using a pre-programmed workout that includes variations in speed and intensity. Or vary those factors yourself during your workout. There are so many things you can do to make it more interesting. Work out for time. Instead of forcing yourself to stay on one piece of equipment when you're bored or uncomfortable, just give yourself a time goal at the gym, says Stamford.
For example, give yourself 30 minutes to get your workout in. Then break it up any way you want — say, 10 minutes each on the treadmill and bike, followed by 10 on the elliptical machines. If you're still feeling chipper, go for 5 or 10 more minutes on the machine of your chice. Even if you love one particular machine, you don't have to use it every time. Because these results are based on averages, he explains, they "are about as accurate as rolling the dice and multiplying eye color times shoe size.
Be a creature of habit. We brush our teeth every morning and every night, Vukovich tells his students. It's a habit, a routine, something we do every day. Exercise should be that way too, he says. So instead of setting yourself up for failure with all sorts of requirements, set less lofty goals at first, if it means you can meet them, says Alexander.
Never begin a new exercise regimen without getting the approval of your doctor. Choosing a Machine Here's the lowdown on what you can expect from some of the machines you're likely to find at your local gym. The Treadmill The treadmill burns the most calories of any of the cardiovascular machines available at most gyms, says Alexander. Continued But even walking may be too much for someone who is overweight and has joint pain.
Elliptical Machines and Stair Steppers These machines pack a little less punch on the joints, and either can be a good alternative to the treadmill, says Vukovich. Stationary Bikes All our experts agree that the stationary bike offers the workout with the least impact on the joints.
