A good way to boost fat loss is to get active, burn calories and raise your normal metabolic rate. This helps to keep your body in good condition and helps to motivate you to lose weight.
How Exercise Helps You to Boost Fat Loss
Let’s say you eat a large hamburger w/o mayo (approx 400 calories).
- If you jump rope, you can burn off all these calories in about 36 minutes.
- If you walk at 3mph, you can burn off these calories in about 80 minutes.
- In addition, exercise helps to raise your metabolic rate, which makes it easier to lose fat.
- Finally, exercise also helps you to lose fat by boosting your motivation to stick to your weight loss program.
Note: all calorie-burn figures are approximate. They are based on a 150 pound woman. If you weigh more, you’ll burn more calories. If you weigh less, you’ll burn less calories.
