How to Lose Weight Quickly Via a Particular Exercise

The fastest way to burn calories is to combine a healthy diet plan with a moderate exercise plan.

How many calories can you burn during running, swimming, dusting - even kissing?  

We have the data posted below. Simply choose the activity that you wish to base your caloric expenditures upon; you'll discover which activities burn the most energy as well as the least.

Our data is based on fifteen minute increments with a ninety minute maximum activity endurance.

Pace & Speed Matter

Keep in mind that the speed that you perform the activity with will also impact the amount of the caloric burn, as well several other factors. Some of these include: current temperatures and weather conditions, personal metabolic rate, gender, age, and manner of body motion and movement.

One important thing to keep in mind is that the number of kcals burned during exercise combines the calories that the body requires just to live.  

Example of Required Versus Expended Energy Amounts  

Dieter Ronald's body requires fifty kcals per hour just to survive. If he does a particular exercise, the data chart indicates that he will burn about 200 kcals per hour performing such.

When Ronald has finished, he will actually have burned 150 kcals rather than 200 as indicated on the chart. Simply put - if he had watched television in a sitting position, he would have automatically burned that amount of energy in an hour's time.

This is one key element which most burn charts do not emphasize.

Of course, Ronald is healthier for getting out an exercising. He will have a stronger, fitter body by doing such on a continual basis. If he is calculating the actual number of kcals used amid a specific activity, he will have a more accurate number by subtracting the amount that his body utilizes at rest.
