Whether you’re healthy or have medical issues, moderate activity is safe for many people and does plenty to enhance your health. If you’re in fine condition , adding vigorous activities to your workouts cuts time spent exercising and may be a boon to health. If you are not fit, workout to vigorous activities slowly. Higher-intensity activities raise your chances for muscle or joint injury and really slightly increase the chances of developing a significant heart problem.
Steps to reach to your weight-loss goals
– It takes roughly 3,500 additional calories spent in physical activity to burn a pound of fat.
– Walking or jogging uses up roughly 100 calories per mile. (Note: Your actual calorie expenditure depends on a number of factors, including your weight and pace.)
– You’ll shed approximately a pound of fat for every 35 miles you walk, assuming your levels of food intake and other physical activity remain the same.
– If you walk briskly for half an hour on five out of seven days, you’ll log 10 miles a week. At the end of three-and-a-half weeks, it’s possible to lose 1 pound even if the number of calories you consume stays the same.
– If you also cut back on the amount of food you eat by a few hundred calories a day, you can hasten the pace of your weight loss.
