The #1 Fat Burning Tip To Help You Lose Weight In this video, we will learn about the #1 fat burning tip to help you lose weight. If you’re trying to lose weight, knowing how your body uses calories for fuel can make a difference in how you approach your weight loss program. Most people want to use fat for energy, which makes sense. Understanding the best way to burn fat starts with some basic facts about how your body gets its energy. The body primarily uses fat and carbohydrates for fuel. For higher-intensity exercises, such as fast-paced running, the body will rely more on carbs for fuel than fat.
That’s because the metabolic pathways available to break down carbs for energy are more efficient than the pathways available for fat breakdown. For long, slower exercise, fat is used more for energy than carbs. When it comes to weight loss, it doesn’t matter what type of fuel you use. When it comes to weight loss, what matters is burning more calories, not necessarily using more fat for energy. The bottom line is that just because you’re using more fat as energy doesn’t mean you’re burning more calories. Burn Fat With A Mix Of Cardio You may even think that high-intensity exercise is the only way to go. After all, you can burn more calories and, even better, you don’t have to spend as much time doing it. For our purposes here, high-intensity cardio falls between about 80 to 90% of your maximum heart rate (MHR) or, if you’re not using heart rate zones, about a 6 to 8 on a 10-point perceived exertion scale. There’s no doubt that some high-intensity training work can be helpful for weight loss as well as improving endurance and aerobic capacity. There are a variety of definitions of what moderate-intensity exercise is, but it typically falls between about 70 to 80% of your maximum heart rate, which would be a level 4 to 6 on a 10-point perceived exertion scale. Low-intensity exercise is considered to be below 60 to 70% of your MHR, or about a level 3 to 5 on a 10-point perceived exertion scale. This level of intensity is no doubt one of the most comfortable areas of exercise, keeping you at a pace that isn’t too taxing and doesn’t pose much of a challenge. But, as we’ve learned, you can burn more calories if you work harder, and that’s what you want for weight loss.
That doesn’t mean that low-intensity exercise has no purpose. Low-intensity cardio doesn’t have to be a structured, scheduled workout, but something you do all day long by walking more, taking the stairs, and doing more physical chores around the house. Also, adding weight lifting to your cardio can also help you burn fat. Adding more muscle by lifting weights and doing other resistance exercises can also help with burning fat, especially if you’re also dieting. It may seem like a no-brainer that regular exercise can help you burn fat and lose weight. It’s also about the adaptations your body makes when you exercise on a regular basis. Regular exercise will also help you manage your weight. The more activity you engage in, the more calories you’ll burn, and the easier it is to create the calorie deficit needed to lose weight. Simply put, this helps your cells burn fat more efficiently. That means fat is more readily available for fueling the body. Integrating more activity into your usual routines will help you stay active, even if you don’t have time for a structured workout.
