Working out is great – if you’re doing it the right way – but a lot of people vastly over estimate how many calories they’re burning during their squats and treadmill activity.
The result is they eat far more than they should after their workout – rewards, right?
Well, not, actually.
You need to use more moderate exercise as the key to losing fat, rather than frentic activity.
To see how many average calories you’re burning during everyday activities and exercise, check out this chart from the CDC. You can see how easy it is to wipe out the calories burned during a workout with just a few extra nibbles during the day.
