Importance of Knowing Your Exercise Calories
why is tracking your exercise calories so important? Well if
are trying to lose weight then you need to create a calorie deficit.
You can do this in a few ways.
First you can change
eating by consuming fewer calories, second you can add exercise in
order to create a calorie deficit or lastly you can combine both
consuming fewer calories and exercising.
Studies show that those
people who eat healthy and add exercise lose weight more quickly and
are more likely to keep the weight off.
How many calories you burn will depend on a few factors. The first is
the MET, or metabolic equivalent of task. The MET is a physiological
measure which expresses the energy cost of physical activities.
In simpler terms, it's a number assigned to the activity based on the
calories (or energy) required to complete that activity.
The other variables are your weight and the duration of the exercise.
Many exercise calculators will also have intensity level as well.
While intensity is a factor, it is already built into the MET assigned
to the activity. For example, biking at less than 10 mph is assigned a
number (the MET). Biking at speeds of 12 - 15 mph are assigned a
different (and higher) MET.
So as you can see, the intensity is built into the MET assigned to that
physical activity. To learn more about MET and the formula behind the
calories burned, check out this article on calories
