Weight loss and running

It is no secret that exercise has its own benefits like : boosts mental strength, keeps anxiety at bay, keeps your heart healthy, manages weight, lowers diabetes risk, normalises blood pressure, increases stamina, boosts your immune system, lowers bad cholesterol etc.

Running is a good and a convenient form of exercise. All you need to do is find a track or a treadmill and start running for 30 minutes. Running can help you in loosing weight and also in maintaining your weight without starving. If you are overweight then you can start with small distance running along with sprints to loose the weight fast. It will take time and try getting it into your regular regimen. The best part of it is that you will soon see the change and start loving it. Along with running you must have a good plan of diet.
