Does swimming help one to slim down?

Read the answers to this question:

Indeed it can! Despite all the hype surrounding various diets, the basic principle remains the same. Total Calories Used per day greater than Total Calories In per day= Weight Loss. The greater the Negative Calorie Balance per day the faster the weight loss. The only unfair part of this equation is that while it takes only an excess balance of 3500 calories to gain a pound of fat...it takes a negative balance of 5000 calories to lose a pound of fat.
The best weight loss programs combine diet control(reducing the number of calories in) with excercise(increasing the number of calories used). Diet control should focus on reducing the amounts of fats and sugar in your diet...lots of fresh fruit, vegetables and lean protein such as fish and chicken. Excercise should focus on high energy expenditure activities(such as swimming, aerobics, etc) for at least 30 minutes 3-5 times a week.
No one gains weight overnight and no one loses weight for the long term overnight either. Diet fads usually result in rapid weight loss due to loss of water...which you gain back quickly. The best case scenario for long term weight loss due to loss of fat is about 1 pound per week.

Swimming is a good choice--it aerobic and sculpts at the same time. :)

absolutely, i joined a gym and just do aquatic exercises and swim laps and swim a mile once a week and i noticed by body being more toned...and i wasn’t eating that great either...but if i combined the both I’d see big results

Big time. Swimming is the best form of excersize you can get. Just remember that some days during the week to run just to keep your muscles in shock and out of routine. The more you vary your routine, the better your body tends to burn fat...

swimming is an complete exercises hence swimming with diet control will help you slim down

for sure... swimming is one of the best things you could do.. its a whole body workout..

yes it is also good for the muscles and heart enjoy

Yes. Both diet and exercise will help you lose weight. Swimming is an excellent way to exercise, because the buoyancy provided by the water makes it an exercise that is easy on the joints.

Yes, most definitely. The only way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more, and you’re doing both. Good job!

i too tried last year but i wasn’t satisfied .the latter one is wiser .should be done with other forms of strenous exercise like running ,cardio , marital arts or weight training .or even bicycling .it depends on how much you swim .since calorie burned is the important not what kind of exercise .

Swimming is great exercise, it may also be your favorite.


And what are your thoughts???
