The benefits of a ketogenic diet
The science behind the ketogenic diet
The potential risks of a ketogenic diet
Our body needs fuel to meet its energy demands. This energy is derived from carbohydrates, proteins, fats and phosphates.
The best heart rate for metabolising fat is between the rested state of around 70 beats per minute and the level of exercise intensity where the body switches to carbohydrates.
By measuring how much air a person exhales during an exercise that gets progressively harder, one can calculate how much fat is burned. The fat-burning zone is between 50 - 72% of a person's VO2 max (the maximum amount of oxygen a person can use during exercise) and around 24-46% of VO2 max for overweight people.
We burn surprisingly little fat during exercise. In studies with athletes, participants only burned about 0.5 grams of fat per minute at FATmax. That is approximately 30 grams of fat per hour. The average person burns between 0.1 and 0.4 grams of fat per minute.
However, following certain diets such as intermittent fasting or a ketogenic, high-fat diet and a longer exercise time can increase the amount of fat we burn.
Perhaps we should consider an individualised "sweet spot" we can use to improve our workout to lose weight.
Frequent physical activity at 30% - 60% of your maximal effort or an observed exertion level of one to four out of ten will likely aid our bodies to use fat for energy.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
