Dance the Night Away Along With Unwanted Pounds
When it comes to telling those unwanted pounds to get lost, they can do such a whole lot quicker when one is moving. A body in motion causes a big commotion in the fat cell area when energy expenditures exceed energy consumption.
For example, if Delta goes out to enjoy an evening of dancing and she currently weighs 130 pounds - which is within her healthy recommended weight range, she will burn about 75 calories for every fifteen minutes that she dances.
And of course, doing the twist and getting down and aggressive boogying will burn a lot more energy than a waltz or slow dancing. The more motion involved, the more intensity - as well as the longer the endurance, the more energy will be burned.
When Exercise Just Isn't Enough to Compensate for Overeating
Let' assume that Delta was a bit neglect amid the day with her eating plan. She knew that she was going out dancing and that she would also burn a good amount of calories off, so she indulged in a Mexican lunch containing six cheese enchiladas, Spanish rice and a side salad mix of cilantro, lettuce and tomatoes. She decided to skip the raw onion and refried beans as she didn't want to experiencing an embarrassing moment on the dance floor.
The total kcals contained in her luncheon plate equaled about 2500. She also dropped by her favorite bakery before heading home to get ready for her night out and gommed-down two chocolate fudge brownies. With nuts. English walnuts to be exacto. The energy value in the two fudge brownies equaled about 1000 kcals.
She also had 500 kcals for breakfast when she had dined on a cheese Danish and a gourmet coffee selection.
Therefore, we now have a total of about 4000 kcals; Delta's body has a daily energy requirement of about 1600 kcals so she has really jumped overboard. Can she rescue the damage and forego weight gain?
Let's begin by subtracting her daily required intake of 1600 kcals from 4000 - the amount that she has enjoyed throughout the day.
That leaves us with 2400 kcals to burn off. In order to do such, she would need to continuously dance at a moderate pace for about five and one-half hours.
Unfortunately, after two solid hours of such, she was so tuckered that she left for home - but stopped to refuel at her favorite pastry shop on the drive there.
After all, she had burned up all those extra kcals by dancing (she assumed) - so what harm could one more little cheese Danish possible cost.....
