Richard asks…

What are some good, free, websites or tips for weight loss?

I am 13 and overweight. I have already talked to my mom about losing weight, and now I need a good website, that is free, that I can use to help me track my weight loss and exercise. Some good weight loss tips would also be very helpful. I really want to have people wow at me. because if I was leaner, I think I would look really good. But I need some help! Thanks Bunches! 😀

Maricela answers:

Self magazine is a great website. You’ll have to register, but then you get a workout log, and a food diary where you keep up with what you eat and do. It’s got a lot of fitness videos and weight loss tips.

Jenny asks…

Why is a lower heart rate better for weight loss?

Why is it meant to be better doing brisk walk on an incline (on a treadmill) keeping the heart rate around the 110-130 range better for weight loss than going for it to your maximum and having your heart rate in the range of 150-170. Surely your using more energy and burning more calories in a 20 minute moderately fast jog than you would be in a 20 minute brisk walk??

Maricela answers:

Your body uses fat, which has nine calories per gram, as its prime energy source at lower intensities. However, the faster you go the more calories you will burn overall as you correctly stated. The other main energy source is glucose (from Carbohydrates, 4 calories per gram). This will be utilised at higher intensities. There are also more health benefits at working at a higher intensity as your heart is a muscle too and needs to be exercised. I recommend interval training to my clients. I also set the incline on the treadmill at at least level 2 as this compensates for the loss of drag when running on a treadmill as opposed to outside terrain. My advice would be to go for as long as you can for as fast as you can, being careful not to over train. There is also evidence that suggests training before you have eaten a meal is better as the body will have low carbs and thus utilise fat at a higher intensity. Replenish the carbs after a work out. Ignore the fat burning zone on most treadmills, they are a waste of time
