When you first get into Ketosis you will lose some significant weight really quickly. That’s one of the best benefits and one of the main Signs of Ketosis. The bad news is that the beginning weight loss is mostly water. The good news is that means you are on your way to becoming a full fledged fat burner. At this point the extra calories you burn by exercising and working out will be from fat. If you are not in Ketosis yet you’ll burn sugar while you exercise. This is a good thing too. While You’re Exercising: Obviously you burn more energy while you are working out, but not as much as you would think. After you Exercise: Your body will need energy to recover, maintain and build muscles.(You might be hungry. Plan to eat some healthy fat.) You’ll also Increase Your BMR: Exercise combined with a good Keto diet will increase your muscle mass and improve the blood circulation and the function of your vital organs. This will increase the amount of calories you burn even while you are resting.
How Exercise Burns Fat
1. YogaI put this one first because it is my favorite – I do it almost every day. Your average 30 minute yoga session will burn about 90 calories. It is a great all-over workout that improves circulation, flexibility, and even can help build muscle. For Keto purposes, moving every part of the body will motivate fat cells to give up the triglycerides along with water weight. No matter what shape you’re in, yoga can be tremendously beneficial. I know that Ashton – the woman in this video is really fit, but don’t intimidated, you can start from where you are. She even tells you how to make the poses easy so you can work up to as good as you can get.
2. WalkingWalking is as easy as falling off a log but – I recommend walking without the falling off of a log part. A 180 pound person burns about 100 calories per mile, and 120 pound person about 60 calories per mile. Walking just 20 minutes a day can improve your mood, release endorphins, increase your energy and improve your memory. Walking is super convenient. You can do it anywhere in a park, in the mountains, in the mall, on a treadmill in your house. Walking naturally syncs with your fitness level – the instruction to “walk at your own pace” is easy to follow. Walking can be social too if you walk with a friend. Here’s my walking friend. Okay – he’s a dog of few words, if you want to get really social you may need a walking partner of the human variety.
3. RunningMaybe this should be called jogging in the easy-start-slow post. Your average 180 pound person will burn 150 calories per mile and the 120 pound person about 80 calories per mile. Running is a great way to get your heart rate up and get your blood pumping – it’s all the benefits of walking, just amped up a little. If you have been walking for a while, you just want something more or different you might want to start a running program. Running sounds like a simple thing – Brenna says if there is something chasing you, you’ll figure it out. But there are some things that you will want to consider before you start. Good shoes – here’s the ones that I like – And how you will carry your phone and your keys. Check out this video, she does talk about eating “a light high carb snack” after a fasted run which I don’t think is a great idea. (Not everyone does Keto).
I think a fasted run is a great idea – I do them – and then if you have to eat afterwards I would recommend a high fat snack like this instead of a high carb snack.
