You need to eat well and work out frequently to burn fat if you want to lose weight and get in shape. You must first realize that just because you are burning calories during exercise does not guarantee you are also burning fat. Losing body fat should be your primary goal when exercising, as you cannot do it only by burning calories. When we exercise, our bodies begin to burn calories, but these calories come from the carbs already present in our bodies. Your body needs oxygen in order to burn calories from fat that has been accumulated. Your body requires a specific quantity of oxygen before it can begin burning fat, and the only way to determine how much oxygen your body actually need is to exercise while maintaining your goal heart rate. Please be aware that if you continue to burn all of your calories from carbs, you will lose largely water weight and your metabolism will slow down. Consider your energy calories to be the calories you burn off when consuming carbs. Your muscles won’t get enough energy to improve your metabolism, which indirectly burns fat, if you lose too many calories. In order to replenish the energy calories you lose when exercising, you must increase your calorie intake.
Losing Fat Calories During Workout
Before your body starts burning fat during aerobic activity, it passes through a number of steps. People often claim that the first 10 minutes of exercise are when you are simply burning sugar (carbohydrates) and not fat. Up to a point, this is accurate. This is because if you are not working out hard enough for your body to demand additional oxygen, or if you are working out too hard and can’t provide your body enough oxygen for fat burning, you will continue to burn sugar after the 10-minute mark. In order for your body to use stored fat as its primary energy source during exercise rather than carbs or sugar, you must move at a consistent speed (not too fast, nor too sluggish). Do not assume that simply because you are at the fat-burning stage, you will remain there. Once more, if you are exercising at a tempo that is suitable for your body will determine whether you continue to burn fat. Ensure that your heart rate is within the desired range.
At-Rest Fat Calorie Burning
Only the anaerobic exercise of weight training will allow you to continue burning fat calories hours after your workout has ended. The secret to burning fat when at rest is weight exercise. Anaerobic exercise, such as weight training, burns more calories than aerobic exercise. The majority of the calories you burn when performing weight training activities come from carbs, which means you must consume even more calories each day to maintain your energy levels. In contrast, the majority of the calories you burn while at rest come from fat. Weight exercise raises your metabolism, which uses your stored fat as energy, which is why you burn fat while at rest.
You must engage in both aerobic (cardio) and anaerobic (weight training) workouts to transform your body into the ultimate fat-burning machine.
