It is possible to increase the amount of energy you burn and lose weight?
The question is - what is the best type of exercise?
What is the best exercise intensity and the optimal duration?
Walking and running shower higher amounts of fat oxidation (burning) but that doesn't necessarily mean more weight loss.
Longer bouts of exercise at moderate intensity will increase energy burning the most but higher intensity short duration exercise can increase the afterburn effect.
The afterburn effect is not as high as people think though and it quickly returns to baseline levels in most cases.
The best approach is to include short duration high intensity exercise to increase calorie burning and longer more moderate intensity exercise to increase the amount of fat burned during a session.
