To Lose Fat, Don’t Run!

Posted by Silver Fern™ Brand on

Whenever most of us see someone running, we assume they are losing fat. To lose weight we should run, right? A recent article by Breaking Muscle ,called "For the Best Fat Loss, Don’t Run", suggests “…if you’re running as a means of reducing body fat, you have better options.” This article mentions the havoc running is causing your joints, the misconceptions associated with eating fats, and explains the difference in fats that we consume (not all fats are bad). Here are some of the highlights from this article:

“Strength training, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), and anaerobic-based circuit training are much better options than long-distance running or plodding away on a treadmill for an hour.”
“The calories in versus calories out faction run into issues. Over-the-top aerobic exercise coupled with a large reduction of calories consumed leads to decreased muscle tissue (the muscle gets used as energy) and the tendency to store more body fat as a survival mechanism. This is not good.”
“For optimal fat loss and lean tissue gains, go in this order of priorities:
  1. Diet
  2. Strength training
  3. Cardio - interval training
  4. Cardio - long, steady state”
Many large studies have concluded low-fat diets do not cause weight loss and have a negligible effect on long-term cardiovascular disease. Women who ate a high-fat and low-carbohydrate diet until satiated actually lost twice as much weight as compared to those who ate a restricted low-fat diet. Additionally, all major risk factors for heart disease and diabetes declined.”
