Vigorous Exercise Promotes Caloric Expenditure 14 Hours after Training
When you do the math, exercise does not appear to be an effective way to control weight. Most people expend about 10 calories per minute when they exercise at a moderate intensity, such as fast walking or slow jogging. That means you burn about 200 calories when running for 20 minutes— not much for all that effort. On the other hand, almost all people who successfully maintain lost weight for many years exercise almost every day. Exercise, particularly when performed vigorously, triggers increased caloric expenditure above rest after exercise. David Nieman and colleagues from Appalachian State University found that people expended an additional 190 calories after 45 minutes of vigorous cycling. Vigorous exercise burns calories during and after exercise and is an important component of a weight loss program. (Medicine Science Sports Exercise, 43: 1643–1648)
