Permanent Fat Burning: Exercise

‘Make the sweat and shed the fat’!!

Yes there is no magical way to reduce body fat other than exercise. A simple rule to reduce body fat is to burn more calories than you consume. Looks like simple logic right??  Not yet!! For example if one person is having BMR – basal metabolic rate ; meaning at rate which body burns fat at rest, is 2000 calories then to maintain the current weight he need to take at least 2000 calories . Approximately 3500 calories makes a 500 g of fat, so if he cut down 500 calories from his daily intake he would create a deficit of 500×7 = 3500 calories a week. Meaning at the end of the month he should be able to reduce 2kgs of weight. And if he continues it, he would be able to reduce 24 kgs a year, and then he might vanish within 3-4 years. But do you anything mentioned such as  happened with any one??No And do you know why?? The answer is our unique digestion system, and a wonderful feature known as ‘starvation response’.  Whenever we do not take the sufficient calories to maintain our weight, our system senses it and starts action against it.
