My son Gib and I working out before the concert. A pound of muscle burns three times more calories than a pound of fat, so it’s a good idea to do things that’ll build muscle as well as get your heart pumping. It can be anything from lifting weights to cleaning out the attic. Losing as little as 2% of your body weight drastically reduces your risk of chronic illness. That means that a 200 pound man can increase his life expectancy by dropping just four pounds. So, get moving!
Ever stepped on the scales and immediately become disheartened when you see a loss of ‘only’ 1lb? Well don’t be! According to this infographic, losing 1lb of fat equates to burning a whopping 3,500 calories! That’s approximately 13 hours of walking or just over 4 hours of running or cycling. So next time you weigh yourself and see a loss of 1lb, pat yourself on the back for a well deserved “well done”. :)
