How to Burn Calories
We burn calories every second, even if we do no exercise. Thousands of chemical reactions occur inside our body which require energy. Also, we need energy for breathing, seeing, and all the other bodily functions that go on continuously. About 60 percent of all our calories are burned to provide our body with this basic energy.
However, if we want to lose weight, we may need to burn extra calories, and the best way to do this is by taking more exercise.
Some weight loss products like: diet pills, weight loss supplements and 'fat-burners', claim to burn extra calories, but none of these claims have been medically proven. Exercise is still the best way to burn calories. Exercise also helps to keep your body in good condition and is excellent for diet-motivation.
