Burning Calories and Body Fat

Aerobics or Resistance?

Many dedicated gym goers often wonder whether aerobic type exercise or resistance training is better for burning calories and body fat. Is cycling or swimming for an hour better than hitting the weights?

Heide Byrne, Ph.D. and co-workers from New York State University studied the effects of exercise on resting metabolic rate (RMR) of 61-women (aged 18-46). All subjects were fit and healthy (either aerobically or resistance trained) and were separated into either highly trained or moderately trained groups.

Tests for body composition, aerobic capacity and RMR showed the women who trained with high-intensity tended to have higher resting metabolic rates, regardless of the type of exercise they performed.

So whether you are lifting weights, running, cycling or swimming, if you are trying to lose weight and burn calories, exercise at a high intensity. This is the most effective way to burn fat and achieve the results you desire.

Intense Exercise leads to fat loss, not leisurely walks
A study that recently compared fat utilization after performing low and high intensity cardio exercise has revealed that in the hours following the workout, intense exercise causes more effective utilization of dietary fat.

Most fat loss research is performed using obese individuals and the findings have little relevance to lean, healthy athletes. In this study, the researchers chose to examine normal weight, moderately active subjects to establish the effect of exercise intensity on fat oxidation (fat burning). Tracers of two of the most common fatty acids in the U.S. diet, oleate and palmitate, were used to analyze dietary fat oxidation.

Seven female subjects (age 26yrs) were required to visit the lab on three occasions for assessment. The participants performed bouts of low and high intensity exercise on a stationary cycle as well as a “no exercise” session to determine baseline values.

Results showed that utilization of oleate was significantly greater for up to 11 hours after performing heavy exercise (49%) compared to both the light exercise (39%) and the rest trials (34%).

The results illustrate that the exercise intensity level a person performs at has a tremendous impact on fat utilization and therefore, fat loss.

If you’re wondering about the best way to lose body fat, the results are clear. High intensity cardio exercise burns more fat than low intensity exercise. Gym instructors should share this information with the cappuccino crowd that waste hours pedaling leisurely away on their recumbent cycles while reading their Mills and Boon novels. Somehow, I don’t think they’ll listen.

If you’re looking to shed body fat, recent research suggests that you’ll be better off making that extra session of cardio instead of cutting more calories from the diet.

The right combination of exercise and calorie-control is essential for fat loss. However, according to the findings of a recent NIH-funded study, restricting calories too severely during exercise will slow the metabolism and promote the loss of lean muscle mass.

In an attempt to get lean quickly, bodybuilders are often guilty of drastically cutting calories during their exercise program. However, research shows this will work directly against the bodybuilder’s goal of building a lean, muscular physique.

The trick to efficient fat loss is to keep the metabolism elevated while following a calorie-controlled eating plan. This means exercising often and making only very small, strategic reductions in calories over a specific time frame.

The results of a recent study suggest that if a person loses body fat overall, they lose visceral fat at a proportional rate.

Losing fat from under the skin gives that much desired lean, ripped appearance. However, the loss of visceral fat (the fat that sits deep within the stomach) is much more important to health. A high level of visceral fat triggers diseases such as type-two diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

The results of an analysis of over 35 studies suggest that as long as a person focuses on burning more calories than they consume, on a regular basis, they’ll lose body fat. More importantly, they lose gut fat just as fast as they lose fat from under the skin.

Exercise and diet both are useful for fat burning and weight lose. if someone wants to lose weight or fat then he must start doing regular exercise. Diet plan is also important. In short a regular workout routine and a good diet plan are important for fat burning.
