Effective Ways of Burning Calories and Managing Obesity
There are many effective ways of burning calories. These include the experts’ recommendation of:
- 150 minutes of aerobic activity or cardiovascular exercise a week
- Strength training 2 or more days a week
- Making fitness a part of your daily routine by opting to bike or walk to places and take the stairs instead of the lift
There are other ways of managing obesity, like determining your metabolic rate and ideal caloric intake with the help of a healthcare professional like a nutritionist.
It’s also a good idea to get your calories from healthy food and lean protein that will help you build muscle mass. At the same time, you should keep away from saturated fat, simple carbohydrates, and refined or processed sugars.
Space your calories out over the duration of a day by having smaller, more frequent meals interspersed between healthy snacks. This way your body consumes more energy.
Finally, make sure not to starve or dehydrate yourself because that could turn out to be counterproductive to your weight control journey.
Having a fast or slow metabolism may be out of our hands but making lifestyle choices that encourage a healthy lifestyle is definitely in our control. Try and find a support system or workout buddies to help you in your journey and make sure to build healthy habits not just with eating but with self-care and sleep as well.
