What we also know however, is that moderate workout – though raising metabolism – burns fewer total calories than a more energetic or intense way of exercising. So if you are on a weight loss diet, how should you handle this problem?
If you want to burn fat with workout or exercise, there are actually two ways to do it; let’s call them the quick way and the slower way:
The quick way
- Increasing your metabolism by performing intense anaerobic exercises. This way you will burn fat indirectly, but relatively fast.
The slower way
- exercise in a low to moderate level of effort, (walking, slight running)
- and for longer durations at a time
If you don’t have time for long duration walking, swimming, jogging or whichever training activity you prefer, you can try the quick way and vice versa.
