If you are one of the millions of people unhappy with your body, finding a way to change it is important.  One of the most wonderful things about the human body is its ability to be changed.  If you are overweight and tired of it, then you can do something about it.  If you are out of shape and tired of it, you can do something about it.  In addition, you’ll often find the last two statements go hand in hand.  Out of shape, overweight people can find a way to reinvent their bodies and remake them into something with which they are happier.

However, the most common route for this is through dieting, which can lead to some rather unpleasant effects.  For instance, many people have tried dieting, only to find that the weight they lost rebounds.  Even worse, some people find that their weight actually increases when the diet is done.  How can you beat rebound weight?  The answer is to combine fitness with the right diet plan. 

Why should you opt for exercise and dieting?  Isn’t that like double torture?  Many programs out there promise weight loss without the need to work out.  In some cases, these promises actually work.  Most of the time they don’t, though.  However, even for those able to achieve results without exercise, bad things can happen.  For example, if you lose weight, but do not gain muscle, then your body is probably not as attractive as you had imagined.

You have to gain muscle in order to achieve the look that you want.  If you want a beautiful, slim, attractive body, then you need to add exercise.  Muscle supports your skin, your bones and your organs.  Without adding muscle, you can find that weight loss leads to serious health problems.  However, with the right exercise regimen, you will be able to gain muscle and lose weight at the same time.  Of course, you’ll need to follow a few rules here.  First, you will need to make sure that you are not following a crash diet, as these do not provide your body with the nutrients, vitamins and minerals essential to gain muscle.  Second, you will need to find the right exercise option for you.  Often, aerobic exercise is ideal for starters, though you can step it up if you demand more results and a different physique.
