    By Health Blog on September 5, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    Many people who consider themselves overweight and desperately want to lose some weight, are under the impression that doing sit-ups and crunches will help their purpose. But the reality is just the opposite; sit-ups and crunches do no good to weight loss patients.

    If you find this idea hard to digest, then you should enquire into the basic purpose behind doing such exercises. Athletes and bodybuilders do sit-ups in order to build their body muscles not to reduce them.

    Working out will not necessarily help you lose weight

    Therefore, if you want to reduce your body weight then stop wasting your time with such exercises. There are other ways to lose weight. For example, you can start burning your body fat; it is not as hard as it may sound as your body naturally wants to burn fat.

    The key is to modify what you eat and how much you eat. If you eat more food than what your body burns, then you are going in the wrong direction. However, changing your diet plan does not mean that you should start eating only boiled and tasteless vegetables. In fact you can continue your normal diet as long as you learn when to eat.

    The timing of your meals is very important; those who eat less but at frequent intervals find it hard to lose weight. Observing moderation in your diet will definitely quicken the pace at which you get slimmer.
