What is the best exercise for weight loss?

The best exercise is the one you will do consistently.

Choose an exercise that:

  1. noticeably increases your heart rate and breathing but doesn’t leave you breathless.
  2. you can do for an at least 10 minutes at a time.
  3. involves continuous movement of your large muscle groups.

Examples:

  • walking
  • jogging
  • biking
  • swimming
  • using a stationary exercise machine such as an elliptical or cross-trainer,
    stair climber, or rowing machine

It’s also important to start and maintain a strength training program to maintain your muscle mass.
