Forget fad diets and agonizing workouts these are the 10 steps to a trim tum
Most people imagine that yoga is something gentle and mindful, not a form of exercise that will help shed excess pounds. But it’s also a fantastic way to get, and keep, the body you want.
There’s not just the anecdotal evidence of many yoga devotees who say it helps them stay trim and toned. Scientific research is increasingly backing up the link between yoga and weight loss.
Researchers in one U.S. study, for example, followed more than 15,000 healthy men and women aged between 53 and 57. Those who started out overweight but did at least one session of yoga a week lost about 5lb over ten years, while those who didn’t gained almost a stone.
I am a hopeless yoga devotee. No other form of exercise has given me this much pleasure since I started working out some eight years ago. For those who have ever been skeptical about this practice,i.e form of exercise, I encourage you to try a class, get a dvd, whatever. You just might love it.
