Weight Loss Exercise- 30minutes or Less per Day

It is not a herculean task to lose weight. The easiest way for you to lose weight is simply by not eating a lot. But that is not very appealing to many people because of how unpleasant it can be.  It can also be detrimental to your health and body. In your bid to lose weight, the most important fact you must consider is the kinds of food that you eat. Endeavor to eat healthy foods, and then engage in proper exercise.
Some people find it boring to exercise, but it does not have to be so. It is also not necessary to have extensive periods of exercise just because you want to achieve weight loss. That is the mistake that a lot of people make, thinking that they should put in at least one hour of exercise daily to be able to get rid of excess pounds. No thanks to all the garbage gathered from magazine s and daytime television. The kind of exercise that really works in losing weight is 30 minutes of a certain type of exercise on a daily basis.
The key is to burn a lot of calories, and in other to achieve this then you need an increased amount of attention to what you are doing. For example, in a session of regular cardio exercises you should increase your intensity for as long as you can before reducing it to normal. This method of exercising is known as interval training or H.I.T.
Performing high intensity intervals o the treadmill or elliptical causes your body to burn a ton of calories in a short amount of time. This means that even if you work out for half your usual time, you are still able to burn more calories than your partner who may have been exercising for an hour.
Also, when you exercise in this way, you continue to burn off a lot of calories even after your session is over. This is usually referred to as “after burn effect”. It occurs because your metabolism has been significantly raised. As a result, your body tries to return to homeostasis by burning calories from your fat store. This is quite impressive, right?
So, while relaxing and watching TV, your body continues to burn a high amount of calories even after your workout sessions because your metabolism is still high. When it comes to losing weight, interval training is perhaps the best method to use for your workout sessions. This way you don’t have to become a slave to the treadmill. All that is required is about 30minutes at a time to conveniently burn off excess body fat and have a great workout.
