More About Calorie Burning
A vital component of any proper weight loss plan is exercise. Your body absorbs calories when you eat. In order to effectively lose weight, you need to increase your activity to burn more calories in combination with eating fewer calories each day by changing to a healthier overall diet plan.
A pound of fat is the approximate equivalent of 3500 calories. So, if your goal is to lose one pound a week, then you would need to decrease your caloric total (how many calories you take in, minus any calories burned via exercise) by 3500 a week. This should be done with a combination of calorie reduction and increased calories burned. Remember you should not lose more than 2lbs a week and your exercise program should be properly planned so as to not overstress your body. Make sure you drink lots of water during your exercise program to ensure you do not get dehydrated as this is extremely dangerous to your health!
There are many activities you can do to burn excess calories, but be careful not to overdo it. Your body needs calories to function and be healthy. The average person needs an intake of 1200 to 2000 calories a day.
