- How is it even possible for someone (trying to lose fat) to burn more calories than they consume (1200) ?
- Q: Okay, so I'm trying to lose fat (thigh area etc) and tone up my butt/stomach a bit, preferably in 6 weeks. But as it is heard everywhere, to lose weight (fat) effectively you need to "burn more calories than you consume" so I reduce my calorie intake from about 1700 to roughly 1200 each day, eating as healthy as I can. Plus I do a 30-40 minute walk everyday, 50-100 crunches and a little yoga or aerobics when I can fit it in. So I go on a calories burned calculator, put in those activities plus everything else - even reading, stretching, standing as they still burn calories. And once all my daily activities are calculated (even sleeping) - it says about 800-900 burned! I really don't get it. Because I'm very sure it's possible to still lose weight from including that fast walk and aerobics as well as cutting back on calories. Please help and explain what's going on..? Like does your body burn calories naturally or from eating?chewing/digesting your food? I'm confused.I'll give you the link to the website. It's correct and everything, but just see for yourself how many cals you burn.http://www.healthstatus.com/calculate/cbcChris,Um - No - I even said in my question, that I calculated the calories burned during sleep. Read the question again..
- A: your body is burning calories no matter what your doing, sleeping, sitting, watching tv, eating. no matter how much you work out about half of the calories you burn will be from sleeping and just walking around all day breathing. That chart is just supposed to let you know how much certain activities burn off, not your entire day. you can get an estimate from that site. just make sure you put in a total of 1440 mins for the day.
- Who knows Nameste Yoga on FIT Tv?
- Q: I've been doing Nameste Yoga on FIT Tv for a while now and I've just recently joined a site that calculates calories burned by doing certain activities. But, they have "Yoga" listed on the activities, and they have "Hathe Yoga." I saw here on Y!A someone mentioned another type of Yoga. Each type of Yoga has anywhere from 100 to 200 calories per hour difference! What type is which and how can you tell the difference?
- A: Each yoga is practiced differently. Vinyasa yoga is a flowing yoga in which you flow from one pose into another, timed with the breath, and you can really work up a sweat doing it. It's not done quickly, but is done with energy and engaging the muscles. you can burn a lot of calories doing Vinyasa yoga. hatha yoga is a gentler yoga, and kundalini yoga is completely different still, although kundalini focuses more on the flexibility of the spine and will have many asanas and movements that can really get your heartrate up and again burn more calories. I think that when it gets down to it, when speaking of yoga and fitness and health, it is best to focus on the style of yoga that you enjoy most, rather than on how many calories it burns. If you find you love a yoga practice in which you place yourself into a pose and hold it for several minutes, you will gain a lot more than just burning calories, and you can always burn your calories elsewhere, like on the treadmill or out for a nice walk or run. :)Do yoga for it's benefits, don't worry so much about calorie burning! :)
