Hi, I'm Denise Druce for LIVESTRONG.com. Let's talk about the most approved ways to lose weight. I'll show you a couple of great exercises. The most safe and effective weight loss programs include cardio exercise, strength training, and good clean eating. So let's look at the strength training portion. We're gonna do a side lunge that works your whole body. So begin with weights in your hands and step one foot out kind of wide with your toes just pointing slightly out and then bend down into that hip. Come back to the center and switch. So you're gonna do that side to side and if you want to add your upper body let your weights come down and then up, down and up. So you're using almost all of the muscles in your body. So this becomes a great weight loss activity because having more muscle mass increases your metabolism and helps you burn more calories even when you're at rest. So a combination of exercises like this along with cardio activity like walking, running, cycling, and cleaning up your diet, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, is the best way to lose weight. That's a look at some of the most approved ways to lose weight. I'm Denise Druce for LIVESTRONG.com.
