Video appunto: Ask the doctor
Hi doctor, I’m Sheila nice to meet you.
Hello Sheila I’m doctor Stevenson and I’m very glad to meet you. How can I help you? What kind of problem you have?
I’d like start a new program for the weight loss but I don’t know how to start..Do I need to exercise?

Exercise helps prevent problems with your heart and circulation.
Exercise gives you more energy, and everybody needs more energy. Exercising can also reduce stress.

Do I need my doctor's permission to exercise?

Most people do not need to ask the doctor if they can exercise; however, in some cases you should talk to your physician first. Your doctor needs to check if you have heart problems, high blood pressure or possibly arthritis.

What kind of exercise do I need to do?

You will want to do exercises that move the large muscles of your body because those exercises increase heart rhythm. You need to choose an activity that you like. Walking is probably the most popular for people that haven't exercised recently. You do not need anything special to begin this exercise routine. Other good exercises include swimming, dancing and running. You need to start with only 20 to 30 minutes per day and 2 to 3 times per week.

What do I need to do before I exercise?

You need to start slowly in order to “warm up” your muscles. Muscles need to warm up before you begin to use them. For example, you can start with moderate exercise by walking for 20 minutes, then running for 10 minutes.
