Banish Winter Blues with Exercise

(SouthBeachDiet.com) How many times have you looked out your window on a gray winter day and made the excuse that it’s too cold to exercise? While the short days and cold nights may tempt you into hibernation mode, and possibly spur bouts of depression, winter is actually a great time to try a new seasonal activity and jump-start your commitment to losing weight, while keeping your spirits up too.
Exercise is an essential part of leading a healthy lifestyle and the catalyst for a faster weight loss. Dr. Arthur Agatston, creator of the South Beach Diet, recommends 20 minutes of interval or core-strengthening exercise on most days of the week. Exercising not only tones your body and trims inches off your waistline, it also releases endorphins, known as “feel good” hormones, which can boost your mood, revitalize your energy levels, and prevent bouts of emotional eating.
