This is what I found out today:
Optimal heart rate for maximum calorie burning
220 – (your age) *.70 = your heart rate which should be maintained for maximum calorie burning while you exercise.
Talking your heart rate above the optimum will burn glucose (will keep heart fit but wont burn fat) and keeping it below.. well the less said the better 🙂
I realised over past one month, I changed my walking path and instead of loosing weight I ended up gaining a KG. Reason – the new walking route had more traffic and I had to walk slower but longer… Then to make up for that I jogged in the ground – that burnt the glucose – my stamina increased but fat.. fat did not go away – perhaps some more of it got accumulated thanks to my allergies (that made me eat more to feel better) and the wedding I attended followed by Id.
So from today onwards, I am on to a new exercise regime.. Will see the changes and record it in this journal after a month.
