Fat Burning Exercise: Choose One That Can Revive Your Bodys Own Fat Burning Dynamism
Fat burning exercise is not merely one that will burn fat on its own. Can it rekindle the body's intrinsic fat burning mechanisms?
We all know our bodies started out as dynamic calorie-burning machines in our early years, even without strenuous fat burning exercise.
Somewhere along the way, they seem to have forgotten how to be that way any more.
In fact, we may actually notice that our bodies have progressively acquired the contrary habit of "not burning unwanted calories". Of actually possessively holding on to fat. The reason for that is in a paradox.
The pace of life is faster nowadays, and from that we all make the cardinal mistake of deducing that a "busy life" is an "active life". We assume that our tiredness is from over-exertion, while it may even be from disillusionment.
Yet in a world that's moving fast around us, we fail to notice that our bodies are growing more and more lethargic - and that is the paradox. This personal lethargy in the midst of external turmoil is the No. 1 cause of "stress", and a host of stress-induced diseases.
Stress is nothing but our misalignment with the pace of the external world. And as the doctors love to tell us, most diseases have their roots in stress ? like obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, hormonal imbalance, emotional depression ?
Look at almost all the research on diseases today, and they will show that somewhere these diseases have their genesis in this ubiquitous term called "stress". We need to examine what this "stress" is, if we want to adequately overcome the diseases themselves -- and not merely try out fat burning exercise to neutralize their impact.
Look up the word "stress" in the dictionary or thesaurus -- and here's what you'll find: hardship, oppression, distress, dread, apprehension, mistrust, nervousness ...
Stress is thus the word that reflects our "inability to cope" -- with a situation, a relationship, a circumstance, a life event ... it's a sign of a subliminal defeatist attitude that has crept into our souls!
It's again this same stress that actually makes the body cultivate the habit of holding on to its fat for dear life. (Fat is nothing but excess energy fuel solidified and stored for future use, anticipating future starvation!)
And no matter what fat burning exercise you try, unless the mind's perception of its surrounding environment is changed it's hard to actualize results.
What the body has learnt how to do very well, is to save fat feverishly for the "rainy day", even add on more and more ?- because from everything it interacts with around it, it anticipates a lot of present and future stress!
How fearfully you perceive the world around you may have a lot to do with your body's disinclination to shed its protective weight and fat! No amount of fat burning exercise can battle these misperceptions of the mind.
Starting a purposeful walking program works in two ways -- one, it directly impacts your physical calorie burn and weight loss situation; and two, the self-assertion involved in setting strong new weight goals and staying with the walking program, day after day, despite all odds, helps wear away the fearful negativity that makes your body hold on to fat! It's the numero uno stress-busting fat burning exercise.

First Component of Weight Loss
Any true body transformation starts with self?discovery. It is an inside?out approach method. By this I mean that you must honestly analyze what your strengths and weaknesses are. Also, what makes you and your body what it is today? Do not get me wrong. I am not a big advocate of analyzing every feeling that may come out of you. From my 15 years of experience in fitness training, the barriers of attitude, values, and self doubt, are the number one reasons why people fail in this program. Breaking through negative attitudes and self doubt will truly transform you to a newer you. In truth, it's a process that is crucial to overcoming self-set limitations. One has got to look inside for these answers This is the biggest and the most important part of a weight loss program, and the most difficult, because everything starts in your head and mind first.

Weight Loss Motivation: I CAN DO IT!
Several months ago I was in desperate need of weight loss motivation. As I was observing my friend's kindergarten classroom I was struck by an idea when I saw her in action. One of her students was filled with self-doubt and seemed to truly believe that he was unable to accomplish the task my friend was requesting of him. She kneeled by his side and patiently showed him once again what was expected of him. After hearing, "I can't do it!" several times, she quietly got up and walked across the room. When she returned she was holding a can that was covered in 'google eyes.' She placed it on his desk and asked, "Do you know what this is?" He shook his head and she whispered, "It's an 'EYE CAN' and every time you doubt yourself you can put it on your desk." He looked up at her with an extremely confused look on his face and she went on to explain, "When you see this can sitting on your desk it will remind you that you 'CAN' do it!" To make sure he understood, she asked him again what it was. He looked up at her and replied, "It is an 'I CAN'!" He bent down and began working with a new found confidence and the 'I CAN' stayed on his desk for the remainder of the day.
