Diet & Exercise Tip Of The Month

Exercise Tip

Have you ever started a new exercise program and then suddenly gained a few

pounds? Don’t fret. It’s normal! Exercise is a stress on your body, which creates micro

tears in your muscles, and the inflammation from those tears will cause you to retain

more water. Your body will also start to store more glycogen in your muscles to make

sure you have plenty of fuel to burn during your next workout. Those two things will

cause a temporary weight gain when you first start working out. A better way to track

your progress will always be to take measurements. If you’re losing inches, you’re

winning!
