I need to lose weight. About 50lbs I want to lose. Is it better to do exercises such as squats and jumping jacks and lunges or running on the treadmill and walking and jogging and bike riding?

From my experience unless you make changes in your diet, exercising alone is not as effective. Eating clean and eliminating processed food from your diet makes such a huge change and you are likely to see it quickly. I've struggled for years having an ED, poor body image amongst a very unhealthy eating habit which made me gain weight instead of losing it. Try taking meat and dairy from your diet even if it's only a few days a week and I promise you'll see a change in the scale. In terms of exercise, try finding a routine that you won't get bored of, because doing the same exercises every time is a recipe to get demotivated. Have you used PumpApp? You put in the amount of time you want to work out for and what areas you want to work and it creates a set of workouts for you to do which is great if you don't want to do the same thing all the time, and you don't need any equipment. Try to incorporate exercise into your daily routine even if that means taking the stairs instead of the elevator or walking instead of going by car. Walking and bike riding is great as they are low impact exercises which don't put as much strain on your body. Swimming is also a good idea as it works every muscle on your body.0
