Are you familiar with calories?

To successfully complete a diet, one should consume fewer calories than one consumes. Do you know what’s in how much?

If you eat more, you have to move more

Many people find it difficult to do without thickeners such as chocolate or even a Mettbrötchen. But a person who moves sufficiently does not need to have a guilty conscience if he sins from time to time. Endurance sports are particularly suitable because they consume the most kilocalories (kcal).

A 70 kilo jogger burns around 350 kcal at a medium running pace in half an hour. If you find this too strenuous, walking is well advised. It protects the joints, because here – unlike when running – the flight phase is missing.

A variant is Nordic walking, a dynamic walking with sticks, similar to cross-country skiing. Compared to classic walking, almost twice as many kilocalories are consumed here: when Nordic walking, the body burns about 340 kcal in half an hour, while walking only 193 kcal.
