Understanding How Your Body Burns Fat

Understanding How Your Body Burns Fat

Anyone who’s turned to exercise to lose weight knows one of the hardest obstacles to overcome is staying motivated even when it seems like nothing you try is working. On these days, it’s important to remember that just because the results aren’t evident, that doesn’t mean your body isn’t changing the way you want it to.

Like any aspect of exercising, you should at some point make time to do your research. We’ve all heard about our metabolism, and generally know what it does, but you may be surprised to find it’s more complicated than simply turning food into energy. You may be even more surprised to learn how little it actually takes to burn calories!
