NMMC-Eupora gives wellness tips

From Press Reports

 

Most people out-eat their exercise because they tend to overestimate the calories they burn during exercise. The rule is that you burn about 100 calories for every mile you run or walk, according to North Mississippi Medical Center-Eupora

And if you think you’re feeling tired or sluggish before exercising, remember that physical activity, not food, is the best prescription because it increases the heart rate and blood flow.

While food may not be a necessity before exercise, eating afterward is a good practice. It aids in the body’s recovery process and provides fuel for the next activity. A combination of both carbohydrates and protein is best.

Make your mind up today to make regular exercise a part of your lifestyle. You can do it!
