How Regular Exercise Helps Weight Loss

Exercise and Weight

Exercise Burns Calories to Lose Weight

The key to weight control is maintaining a balance between "calories-in" and "calories-out". It means keeping energy intake (food) and energy output (physical activity) in balance. Regular exercise plays an important role in weight loss by increasing energy output, causing the body to burn stored calories (stored body fat) for extra fuel. For fitness tips to lose weight, see Weight Loss Exercise Program

Exercise Raises Metabolism and Boosts Weight Loss

Studies show that not only does regular exercise burn extra calories (which helps reduce weight), it also raises metabolic rate during a workout, AND causes your metabolism to stay raised for a period of time after exercising. This is good for weight reduction, because the faster the metabolic rate the more calories you burn throughout the day and while asleep.

How to Exercise to Lose Weight?

The key to exercise for weight loss purposes is regularity. If your exercise program burns 100 calories a day more than your body needs, you will lose approximately 10 pounds in year. To achieve this, all you need to do is take 30 minutes of moderate exercise daily. That said, a combination of regular exercise and diet offers the most flexible and effective approach to weight control.

What's the Best Exercise to Lose Weight?

Regular aerobic exercise is best for weight loss. This type of exercise includes brisk walking (outdoors/treadmill), swimming, cycling (outdoors/gym bike) and elliptical training.

Strength-Training is Also Good Exercise for Weight Loss

Strength training helps to build muscle, which benefits weight reduction. Point is, muscle tissue is more metabolically-active than fat tissue. Meaning, muscle burns more calories than fat does. So the better your muscle-to-fat ratio, the more calories you burn and the easier it is to lose weight.
