Part 9 – Take Advantage of the “After Burn” from Moderate Exercise
The Medical Journalist in the BBC TV program hated exercise, but he was tested after exercising on a treadmill (at brisk walking pace). The test showed he used up a small amount of body fat after the exercise, initially he was disappointed.
He called this effect “After Burn”. He said during exercise we burn carbohydrates and these take around 22 hours to replace, so we then burn fat reserves over the next 18 hours or so, even while sleeping.
So go and exercise and enjoy the after burn.
