In order to permanently burn calories safely, you’ll need to modify your diet and get more active. Working out builds muscle, burns calories, and boosts you metabolism. With a high metabolism, you can remain thin.
Get your favorite workout attire out of the closet and try one of the following seven exercises to begin losing weight.
Walking is an optimal exercise for burning calories: no equipment is required, and it’s completely free.
Walking is a low-impact exercise, so you won’t have to worry about blowing your knee out, or other injuries that can put you on the disabled list.
Walking is particularly ideal for those suffering from heart disease, obesity and other health issues. This is because walking is a low-intensity aerobic exercise. Walking also provides instant relief from stress.
If you walk at a pace of four miles per hour, you can burn between 5 to 8 calories per minute, or between 225 and 360 calories during a 45-minute walk. To put it another way, if you were to walk for at least 45 minutes a day regularly, you could easily lose 1 pound each week, just like that. Of course, these numbers vary depending on how much you weigh.
