I think every little bit counts. But I think that you should work out for 10 continuous minutes at a time for it to have much effect.

The most important thing about your exercise program is that it is enjoyable for you and it is something you want to do. If you satisfy that requirement, you are much more likely to stick to your workout routine and build up your fitness over time.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

Thats how I started up again just doing 20 minutes of cardio to get back into the swing of things. Although for me I used to be a gym junkie since I was studying health and nutrition in college but I honestly love to work out. I have two children and a very demanding job so the hour I spend 5 times a week I know its for me and I can clear my mind of everything else. Weights are a good thing even if you use your own body weight its great, muscles will help you burn more calories even in rest, but start slow I agree with the previous post allot of people will burn themselves out early by doing too much. Find an activity that you like as well. I love Zumba and have also taken a liking to step. Good Luck, You can do it!

It is effective as muscle burns more calories than fat so you are going to benefit more.

It will be effective over time if you are consistent in doing it.

Starting slow is a good idea, too many people jump into the deep end and want to immediately spend 120 minutes a day, 7 days a week exercising and quickly get overwhelmed and exhausted and give up.

10-15 minutes a day is a good way to start if you are not used to fitness.

So I am going to be starting slow on the fitness portion, going to try for 15 minutes a day but for the first 2 weeks even 5 minutes will be alright.

What I am wondering though is if I take a random point in the day and do some squats or push ups or use my hand weights will it be effective at all or a waste of time?
