When Is the Best Time to Exercise
If you’re following the South Beach Diet lifestyle, you know that regular exercise (and interval exercise in particular) will help you rev up your metabolism so you lose weight faster and avoid weight-loss plateaus. But does the time of day you choose to exercise make a difference in how much fat you burn?

Some Surprising Benefits of Exercise
It’s no secret that the way to put an end to a sedentary lifestyle and improve your health is to simply get moving, says Dr. Arthur Agatston in his new book, The South Beach Wake-Up Call. And yet, as he also points out, most of us don’t do it. According to recent statistics, about two-thirds of American adults report that they are physically inactive —that is, they are sedentary most of the time. And only about 22 percent of American adults say that they do any meaningful exercise at all.


Interval Exercise Outdoors and In
Interval exercise not only helps you lose weight (and keep it off for the long haul), but it also strengthens your heart. Dr. Arthur Agatston, creator of The South Beach Diet, recommends a minimum of 20 minutes of interval exercise — like interval walking (during which you alternate periods of fast walking with periods of slower recovery walking) — every other day.

The Importance of Core-Strengthening
Think fast: What’s your favorite type of exercise? If you’re like most people, cardio is at the top of your list. But focusing too much on cardio while neglecting core-strengthening exercises can result in weak core muscles and poor flexibility — and that can increase your chances of getting hurt.


Creative Ways to Move
Exercise boosts brainpower, builds muscle, burns calories, helps protects against cancer, relieves stress, and even helps prevent the common cold. And yet only 22 percent of American adults say that they do any meaningful exercise at all. Dr. Arthur Agatston’s new book, The South Beach Wake-Up Call, provides the Wake Up and Move 2-Week Quick-Start Plan, a day-by-day guide to getting started with interval walking and core-strengthening exercises.
