Exercise is vitally important for experiencing good health. Our bodies are made to move, and if we do not use them, they invariably fall into disrepair. We know from research that exercise can support health in a wide variety of ways. These are just a few ways that exercise helps:
- Exercise helps us maintain a healthy weight, something which is known to prevent numerous diseases.
- Exercise helps support the cardiovascular system and promote healthy lungs
- Exercise helps keep our muscles strong and toned, and helps prevent injury
- Exercise helps us maintain bone density, particularly into old age
- Exercising regularly supports good immune health
- Exercise is an excellent stress reliever and promotes positive mental health.
These are all very positive benefits of exercise. Furthermore, research tells us that the benefits of exercise start with just 150 minutes of moderate activity per week––something as simple as a brisk walk for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. The barrier to entry really is that low!
However, even the most ardent and devoted exercise is not enough to fully realize good health.
Even those dedicated to their exercise must maintain a healthy diet, particularly if they want to glean all the benefits of exercise. It is possible to exercise––even a lot––and still not be a healthy weight. And you may jog frequently, but if you eat poorly, you can still negatively affect your cardiovascular health. Similar to supplements––exercise alone will not allow you to outrun a poor diet. Eventually, what you eat catches up with you. Many practitioners say that diet is the singular most important factor in the health you do or do not experience.
This is especially true if you are trying to rid your body of pathogenic yeasts and fungi.
If you are still consuming foods high in sugar and carbohydrates, it doesn’t matter how many weights you lift or miles you jog, you will still be feeding internal fungal infections, which may go on to cause serious health problems. And if you are still eating foods that are potentially contaminated with mycotoxins, those foods may negatively influence your health regardless of how many sprints you run.
Exercising is highly recommended for those on the Kaufmann Diet. The downstream effects of exercise help boost the immune system, equipping your body to fight off these potentially virulent pathogens. But, exercise only works towards this end if your diet is dialed in. If you have struggled to lose weight or improve your health with exercise alone, try the Kaufmann Diet for a period of 4-6 weeks, and see how quickly things change. Not only that, you will likely find that your exercise performance improves as well.
