What you need to know about the latest research into the effects of exercise on weight loss
There is growing evidence that exercising at high intensity can have beneficial effects on weight control.
However, recent research has shown that a particular exercise style is more effective than others.
It’s been known for some time that high intensity exercise is beneficial for weight loss and in particular, it can decrease the amount of calories that are burned.
In fact, the body burns more calories when you are at a higher intensity, as it can reduce fat storage.
It is important to note, however, that a high intensity workout does not equal a high calorie burn.
The intensity of a workout does depend on how fast and hard you are working.
For example, sprinting for 10 minutes at a brisk pace works best for weight reduction, but not for weight gain.
In the same vein, if you are doing an intense workout at 90-100% of your maximum heart rate for 20 minutes, you are likely to burn more calories than if you were doing a 10-minute run at the same intensity.
The more intensity you train, the more calories you burn.
This means that an intensive workout is more likely to be a calorie burn than a light jog.
So, the key question is: is there any benefit to exercising at higher intensities?
Research has found that people who are able to run at high intensities are able, on average, to lose more weight than people who run at lower intensities.
Researchers found that those who ran at the very top of their sport, like running at the top of the mile, had the greatest impact on their bodyweight.
The authors concluded that this is because they were able to use more energy in the form of exercise to burn calories, and so they had the largest caloric gain.
This research is not without controversy.
For one thing, there is some evidence that running at higher intensity burns more energy than walking at the lower intensity.
However the research does not suggest that running can increase your metabolic rate or that running is better for weight control than walking.
It does however suggest that higher intensity exercise could help you lose weight.
Dr Andrew Whiteley, an exercise physiologist at Imperial College London, says that the more intensity the workout is, the longer it takes for the body to burn the calories.
He explains:”You can do a very high intensity (50-60% of maximal heart rate) workout, for example, for 20-30 minutes, for 30 minutes, and then do a light run for 10-15 minutes.
It takes about 5 minutes to burn about 500 calories per hour.
So, if your heart rate is at 70-80%, you are burning about 800 calories per minute.
So that’s about 50 calories per 10 minutes.”
This is because the more energy the body has to burn, the faster it can burn those calories.
If you are not physically fit and you can’t run a high-intensity workout for more than 30 minutes a day, then it is unlikely that you will be able to lose weight, as you will need to run much longer periods of time to burn those same calories.
This is why running at a very low intensity, such as walking, is so beneficial.
When you are running at low intensity and walking, you will burn fewer calories than running at high-exertion.
In other words, your body can burn more of the calories you are eating during your exercise session and burn them in the same amount of time as you would if you ran at high speed.
However Dr Whiteley cautions that this does not mean that running with an intensity higher than the intensity of your exercise activity can be beneficial.
He says:”We can’t say that walking is going to be as good as running at an intensity of 80-85% of maximum heart-rate.
That is not going to mean that walking at 80% is going the same as running, but that it will be slower.
But there is no doubt that walking has some benefits.”
If you want to get in touch with a professional who can help with your weight loss, then the best way is to talk to your doctor.
They will be more than happy to help you get fit, lose weight and keep the extra pounds that you have gained.
