How to burn calories?

Updated on September 8, 2012

Bulging waistline, extra skin, hate handles, breadbasket or whatever sophisticated names we call it, it’s the same love handles that bounce every now and then whenever we walk or run. Disconcerting it might be, but the extra fat spreading around our belly can be stubborn to get rid of. Weight lifting, marathons, one thousand sits up or strict diet plan doesn’t promise a flat abs or six-pack results.

The key to shrink your belly and the best way to burn fat doesn’t come in one way, it comes in different ways.

Burning more calories than devoured

One pound of fat is equivalent to 3,500 calories and if you consumed more than this amount of calories, the possibility of losing that extra pounds is like kissing goodbyes to your skinny jeans. And you don’t want it to happen, do you? Researchers suggest that the secret to burn weight is to watch your calorie intake, which means cutting down sweets, junk food and other non-healthy foods. Every 3, 500 deficit is equivalent to 1 pound weight lose. If you eat two Big Mac at McDonalds, you would roughly get 1080 calories for just two burgers. What about the other extra foods?

The best way to track down what you eat is having a journal. List down all the food that you consumed in a day. Discipline yourself of the foods that you will take. Buy a weigh scale and record your weight a day and compare the results in the next day. Maintain this activity in a month. Always remember that burning more calories is the key to lose weight.

Exercise is also the key

The main reason why most people spend more than two hours in the gym is that exercise also plays a key role to burn fat. Cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and other form of exercises are favourable to burn fat. One important thing to remember that there is no magic or miracle exercise that will burn fat overnight. Consistent exercise for a month or two will likely give you the result you want to achieve.
