Originally Answered: what exercises is best for Weight loss?
Fat is burned through calorie control first and exercise last because you can always eat more calories than you can burn. Get the calories under control first and then develop your workouts around workout objectives, not fat burning objectives. You can burn calories in your sleep. Check out these facts.
• If you consume fewer calories than you burn, you have to lose fat eventually. There are no exceptions to this fact.
• A pound of fat will yield about 3500 calories (Kcal) of energy.
• Your body will burn hundreds of calories even if you are in a coma. That's your BMR. Go here to find out what it is --> http://www.calculator.net/bmr-calculator...
• An average person must run or walk about 5 miles (8 km) every day to burn one pound of fat per week AND THEIR DIET MUST ALLOW IT.
• An average person must run or walk about 350 miles (563 km) to burn 10 pounds AND THEIR DIET MUST ALLOW IT.
• An average person who consumes 500 calories per day less than they burn will lose about a pound a week with no extra time or physical effort required.
• A average person dieting with a 500 calorie/day deficit will burn 10 pounds of fat in 10 weeks. The same person running 5Km (3 miles) per day with a Zero calorie/day deficit will burn 10 pounds in 16 weeks.
•Running only burns slightly more calories than walking as long as the distance remains the same.
• It does not matter if a person runs or walks a given distance…they will burn about the same number of calories. Although running burns slightly more than walking, the distance is far more significant than the speed over which it is traveled.
• It is not necessary to do "cardio" to burn fat. "Cardio" is aerobic exercise which elevates the heart rate to 80% of max and sustains it for the purpose of cardio-vascular fitness. You can burn fat in your sleep.
• Most of the calories you consume will be spent just keeping your body temperature at 98.6F.
• It doesn’t matter how hard or how long you exercise, you will not lose any fat if you eat too much. You can always eat more calories than you can burn. When it comes to burning fat, diet always trumps exercise.
• There are only two nonsurgical things you can do to sculpt your body and they are (1) add or lose fat and (2) add or lose muscle. Muscle can only be lost naturally through atrophy.
• There is no exercise which will remove fat from a particular place on the body. Your body (genetics) determines where you lose fat, not you nor your diet nor your exercise. Spot fat removal by diet or exercise is a myth which is why people spend so much money on liposuction.
• There are no supplements which will make your body burn fat. Only you can do that with diet control.
• Protein has the same caloric content as pure sugar (4cal/gram).
• An average natural bodybuilder who is just starting to train may gain as much as 4-8 ounces of muscle in a month. An average dieter who is burning fat will lose about a pound a week. Anyone can gain a pound in a few minutes just be drinking a pint of water.
Here's how to lose fat.
• Go here ---> http://www.calculator.net/bmr-calculator... and calculate your BMR.
• Limit your daily caloric intake to your BMR.
• Make sure you eat only wholesome, varied, nutritious, high quality foods in 4-6 small meals per day. (THIS IS IMPORTANT)
• Keep your macronutrient ratio at 55/20/25 (%calories from carbs/fats/protein respectively) by tracking your intake.
• Track your intake here ---> http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ (or Live Strong, Sparks People, etc)
Here's my tracking as an example --> http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/diary/clickmaster
If you eat your BMR in calories and no more each day, you will have enough food to properly nourish your body and all of your activity will burn fat. That means, the more you walk or run or workout, the more fat you'll burn. Also, by eating your BMR and tracking your macros, the numbers will force you into good food choices because bad food choices will leave you very hungry at the end of the day. In other words, it forces good behavior.
Note: Here are the details in case you're interested. ---> http://health.gov/dietaryguidelines/2010.asp and here ---> http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/nutrition.html
You get to make the food choices (no supplements without a doctor's recommendation) based on culture, available foods, personal preferences, your resources, food allergies, etc. However, the words "varied", "wholesome", and "high quality" are important. And, you should consume your food in 4-6 daily meals with healthy snacks between such that you're nourishing yourself every two hours when awake.
