Run Run and Simply Run!!
Yes, Running has been regarded as one of the right way to burn fat. The main theme on which running works is just like that of weight loss, that is, "doing more but getting less" (see more on Weight Loss). So if you are running for weight loss, then you will lose weight only when you burn more calories than that you consume. Off the several vigorous exercises out there running is an extremely effient way to burn those extra bit of pounds. A person weighing 150-pound can burn approximately 100 calories per mile when running. So why say I won't Run?
Here are some of the tips on running that you might wanna look into:
Yeah running can help you to burn extra fat. But running combined with healthy balanced diet can give you better result. Try choosing foods that are less in calories. If you want high-calorie foods, then smaller portions of high-fat and high-calorie foods is OK (see more on Weight Loss Diet). Also try to eat more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables (see more on Fruits and Vegetables) and fiber-rich foods (see more on Fiber Weight Loss).
Off the several common mistakes that runners do, one is they overcompensate for the calories burned by running with extra calories consumed from more food and beverages. Some of them find that they are gaining weight despite their exercise. So it would be great if you can keep an eye on what you are eating. You can do this by writing a journal for a few weeks. By doing this, you can see where your diet needs an improvement. The record can also keep you on track because you will think thrice (hehe) before putting that slice of Pizza in your mouth.
2. Run on a regular basis
Hard work pays off. Yes, it also comes true in case of Weight Loss. Running surely can help you lose weight but running once a week is not a good thing if you are trying to lose weight. If you find it that hard then run 3-4 times a week. Don't forget that it's always better to get some activity everyday.
3. Dieting and exercise
It's not a good idea to increase your exercise and go on a crash diet at the same time. If you are a runner, you need more calorie (energy) and nutrients. So you if you try to restrict what you're eating you are much more likely to get ill or injured at the same time.
Dieting will reduce your fat, muscles and water content which isn't a good thing if you're trying to lose weight. Whereas running will reduce your fat but also increase the amount of lean muscle. Further, running will improve your muscle tone, which will contribute to an improved appearance.
Dieting can be difficult to sustain, because it requires you constantly to restrict the foods that you want. Sometimes, the constraints imposed by diets are unhealthy, preventing you from eating a good variety of healthy foods.
