Are there any benefits to burning calories?
Burning calories can help you:
- Lose weight
- Maintain your current weight
- Improve your health
- Improve your sleep
There isn’t a specific amount of calories you can or should burn to improve your health, but it’s generally accepted that a calorie deficit can help you lose weight.
In addition, burning calories can help improve your health overall.
For example, research from 2012 suggests that calorie restriction may be an effective weight loss tool for people with heart disease.
This is because it can reduce the amount of fat you store in your body.
Burning calories can also help improve your sleep quality.
The CDC recommends that you get 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep per night.
If you get less than 7 hours of quality sleep, it can affect your mood and your weight.
According to research from 2017, getting too little sleep can also make it harder to lose weight.
Burning calories can also help improve your mood.
A 2015 review of studies found that a calorie deficit can improve your mood and reduce stress, which can help you feel happier and more focused.
What are the risks of calorie restriction?
Burning calories can have a few risks, particularly if it’s done for a long period of time.
If you’re trying to lose weight, your body may not be able to burn as many calories as you’d like.
This is because your body may get used to burning more calories than you’d like.
This is called the “sensible limit.”
In addition, some people may have a higher metabolism than others. This means that burning more calories than you should may result in weight gain.
Burning calories in the long term can also have more serious health risks.
This is because you may be increasing your risk of:
- High blood pressure
- High blood sugar
- Heart disease
