How Much Exercise It Takes To Burn Bad Food

It takes a lot of will power to avoid food that’s bad for your health. Unfortunately, the most delicious food is often times the same food that goes against every diet plan. These calorie-filled treats are also easier on your wallet, which is one reason it may be more appealing. We follow intense diet plans in hopes of more rapid weight loss, and cheating with bad food can set you so far back that you don’t feel like you recover. That typically leads to giving up on your weight loss goals which will hurt you in the long-term. What most people don’t take into consideration is just how much exercise it takes to burn fat and calories from these unhealthy foods. First, let’s look at a metabolic chart using three popular forms of exercise: running, cycling and weightlifting for a 180-pound man.

  • 1 hour of intense weightlifting burns 450 calories
  • 1 hour of moderately fast cycling (14-16 mph) burns 750 calories per hour
  • 1 hour of fairly fast running (8 mph) burns 1,000 calories per hour
