This would be my top 3:

1. Sitting down exercises – Sitting down has been considered as one of the most effective exercises for obese people. This is also considered as one of the safest exercises. For overweight people or obese people, you can opt to do sitting up and down exercises that are effective for you. This type of exercise can actually help in building basic muscle strength and lessening fat production. While you are sitting down on your chair, you can do various arm movements and arm raises, you can do leg lifting and back bending or body leaning. These are gentle exercises that will prepare your obese body to do strenuous exercises in the future.
2. Walking exercises – Walking exercises is one of the most common exercises too for obese people. It is best recommended that you do short or long walks for at least thirty minutes every day. If you cannot tolerate doing a thirty-minute walk, then you can adjust it according to your capabilities. You should make sure that you keep yourself comfortable as much as possible. Consider wearing comfortable shoes when walking. It will greatly affect your activity for the day. Wear something that is not too tight and not too loose. You should always bring water with you as to replenish all fluids lost due to sweats. This will keep you hydrated. Always remember to take several breaks so as not to overwhelm your body.
3. Swimming exercises – Swimming exercises are also one of the most effective exercises recommended for obese people. This can be a great alternative for some exercises or activities. Remember that water allows you to feel lesser loads from your body because you become lighter when you are in the water. It actually allows you to get rid of more serious strains and injuries as well. You can do all strokes in the pool and you can move every single part of your body. You can do butterfly stroke, breast stroke, or the freestyle. You can do whatever you wish to do in the water.

*Warm up. Start off with 5 to 10 minutes of walking, light jogging, jumping jacks or jumping rope. Then perform the following series of exercises all the way through and, if you’re up for more, repeat two to three times.
*Push-up combo. Do 10 push-ups with your hands on a wall or tree, then 10 with your hands on a bench, then 10 with your hands on the ground.
*Jumping jacks or jump rope. Go for 1 minute.
*Walking lunges. Start standing tall and then lunge forward with your right leg until your thigh is parallel to the ground. Bring your left leg up as you stand tall and then repeat on the opposite leg. Do 10 reps with each leg.
*Planks. Rest your forearms on the ground (do this up on your hands if it’s too hard) and lift up on your toes so that your body is parallel to the ground. Elevate one leg up behind you for 30 seconds, then switch legs for another 30 seconds.
*Mountain climbers. Crouch down with your hands on the ground in front of you. Extend one leg back and place one knee in toward the chest, then quickly switch. Repeat for 10 reps each side.
*Standing side crunches. Stand with your hands clasped behind your head, elbows pointing out to the sides. Bring your left knee up and your left elbow down so that they meet at waist level. Return to the starting position and quickly repeat on the right side. Alternate for a total of 20 reps.
*Jogging, running, jumping jacks or jump rope. Go for 1 minutes.
*Sitting V-crunches. Sit on the edge of a bench and grab the back of the seat with both hands. Lean back at a 45-degree angle and extend your legs out in front of you. Then bring your knees into the chest for 20 reps. (No bench? Start by sitting on the ground and placing your hands behind your butt.)
*Power walking, jogging, running, jumping jacks or jump rope. Go for 1 minutes. *Cool down. Walk slowly for 5 minutes. Then stretch your entire body. Place an emphasis on calm yoga-style breathing while you enjoy being outside!


An other good Ceviche is this one:

Shrimp Ceviche
1 lb. popcorn shrimp, thawed (or fish, scallops, oysters, etc.)
Juice of 3 limes
Combine these together thoroughly in a ceramic or glass bowl. Cover, pop in
the fridge and ignore for 24 hours. The lime juice “cooks” the seafood and
preserves it.
1/2 red onion finely chopped
1 or 2 jalapenos chopped, depending on taste (for hotter use habanero)
3 fresh tomatoes chopped
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Juice of 3 limes
Salt and pepper to taste.

Take the shrimp from the fridge and drain thoroughly. In some of the
ceviche recipes we’ve found, they do not call for pouring off the first
lime marinade. But, we found the flavor is much fresher when you do.
Add the remaining ingredients and refrigerate for at least two hours before
serving. The thicker the seafood the longer it takes to marinade. Place
in tall cocktail glasses for a pretty presentation or over a bed of salad
greens with slices of avocado.
