Swimming and Losing Weight

The weight loss struggle

Is losing weight one of the reasons you are swimming?

Wait... Get Your Lesson Plans Here

There is little question that one of the reasons why many people want to learn to swim is because of the exercise and they hope that will help them lose weight.

Swimming is gentle on the joints and even a new swimmer burns a lot of calories.

For those of us that struggle with their weight, the gentleness of movement in the water can be very attractive compared to pounding all our excess weight on the pavement or treadmill.

But the reality is that losing weight with exercise alone, any kind of exercise, is a very difficult task. You cannot ignore your diet. I know this because some years ago I was involved is a scientific study that looked at the effectiveness of diet over exercise.

The results of the study were conclusive. Whilst you can lose weight with exercise alone, it is far more effective and sustainable with diet.

It is easy to develop misconceptions from television shows like the biggest loser. By their nature, they have to concentrate on the exercise because that makes for good TV but there is a lot of dieting that goes on.

There are all sorts of persistent information around that we know is... Well, let's be nice and say that it was just not correct.

Some of the advice I have been given includes:
  • Don't drink (not water or anything) during exercise
  • Increase your glucose
  • And more
You would think that with what we now know the advice would get better. But it doesn't and knowing that doesn't help either. We need good advice.

I have a free book for you that will help. Don't be put off by its emphasis on building good looking bodies if that is not what you are into. There is still a lot of good and useful information that will help you on the path to being in better shape; no matter what your personal idea of better shape is.

It's called:
"5 Reasons You Are Not Losing Fat".
Written by Thomas Calkins, Fitness Coach and Owner/Founder of BuiltFit.com the information included is:
  • Your Eating Regime
  • The Right Foods
  • Using Weights
  • Rest
  • Miracle Diet?
  • And More
This book is completely free because I too am sick of the bad advice and I want to start to fight back.

There is no up sell or anything to put you off just good information.
