Pillar Number Four Of successful Weight Loss

Increase Physical Activity by Life Extension

According to, the author, William Faloon, most people think the only weight-loss benefit of exercise is to use up more stored body fat calories. In reality, exercise induces many beneficial changes at the cellular level that contribute to better weight control. Increased physical activity itself improves insulin sensitivity and mimics the effect of certain antidiabetic drugs (such as the PPAR-gamma agonists), which can have a favorable effect on body fat contouring.

The type and intensity of physical activity will vary considerably among individuals.  The purpose of making increased physical activity one of the Nine Pillars of Successful Weight Loss is to encourage everyone seeking to achieve optimal fat loss to engage in some form of increased physical activity.

In Life extension opinion, people who could follow a good exercise program to keep fat pounds off would do so if they saw rapid and meaningful weight loss results.  Even a modest increase in physical activity, as a component of the Nine Pillars of Successful Weight Loss, should produce a reduction of belly fat, remarkable enough to motivate even sedentary individuals to find ways to become more consistently physically active.

As a personal trainer and nutrition consultant, I highly recommend cardio combined with weightlifting.
