It increases your risk of diseases and health problems such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. Exercise of course plays a very important role but treatment for obesity begins and ends with A Diet Plan. But this is precisely where we fail to persist. We start off really well though. An all fruit diet or a bowl of steamed veggies for breakfast. No looking at junk food.

Exercise of course plays a very important role but treatment for obesity begins and ends with A Diet Plan. But this is precisely where we fail to persist. We start off really well though.

In order to observe change in your body nevertheless, you must push your own limits. Exercise is not there to be "easy" it is there to problem you and make yourself feel good.
