Aerobic exercise =  you can lose fat without drastically reducing the
calories you consume or sacrificing important nutritional needs. One reason
for this is because aerobic exercise not only elevates your metabolism
while you're exercising, it can also keep it elevated even after you're
done, depending of course on how long and how strong you exercise.

You've probably heard about exercise programs that actually turn your body
into a "fat-burning machine." Aerobics can do that. An aerobic program you
stick with can help you lose fat easier because it can stimulate your
body and make it burn calories.

Strength training = successful weight (fat) management:
Your muscles burn calories during physical activity. What you may not know
is your muscles also burn calories when your body is at rest. Increase your
muscle mass, and you'll be increasing your body's capacity to burn calories
both during activity and at rest.

Add to that the research that shows that restricting calories
substantially can cause the loss of lean muscle mass, along with the loss
of fat. By incorporating strength training into your activity program, as
well as following a moderate diet, you'll be able to maintain lean muscle
mass while you lose fat.

Eating less, or cutting back on fat in your daily intake won't necessarily keep
fat off. All you really need to do is strike a good balance between the
number of daily calories you consume and the number you burn. That's it.....
