How Your Body Burns Calories Calls Notice To The Importance Of Exercise



To fully appreciate the importance of exercise, it's good to understand how the body converts food into energy and how energy burns calories.

It's also important to remember that whether or not you're actively doing anything, your body is still using energy and burning calories.

How many and how fast is dependent on 3 things.
  • BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate)
  • Physical Activity
  • Dietary Thermogenesis
WHAT IS BMR (BASAL METABOLIC RATE)?

In simple terms, BMR is the amount of calories your body needs to function while it's resting. And believe it or not, when it's resting, the vital organs alone burn alot of calories.

BMR is determined and calculated using several factors:
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Weight
  • Diet
  • Genetics
  • Exercise
  • Body fat
  • Body surface
  • Body temperature

While several of these factors such as our age, gender, and genetics cannot be changed or controlled, it is well worth noting that daily exercise and a healthy diet can dramatically change your BMR.
