Burn More Calories on Your Walk With 4 Easy Tweaks If you’re looking to discover a fountain of youth, it may be as simple as putting one foot in front of the other. Recent research published in the Journal of Epidemiology showed that taking a 30-minute walk five days a week can help you live longer. The benefits of regular cardiovascular. Try these four tweaks to burn more calories each time you lace up your walking shoes. Add some weight.

When you weigh more, your body requires more energy to move. But then, as you lose weight, walking becomes easier and you burn fewer calories. That’s why many people seem to lose weight quickly at first, but then hit “plateaus”.

One way. Increase the challenge. Simply incrementally increasing the challenge of every walk is a great way to burn more calories every day. If you walk for a mile, try to make your mile faster every day.

If you walk for an hour, try to get a little further in an hour every day. If you use a step counter, try to get a few more steps in every day. Try these four ways to tweak your daily walks, add a bit of difficulty to your favorite exercise, and burn even more calories. Add bursts of speed.

A burst of high-speed walking (or even jogging) will boost your heart rate even if you don’t maintain that speed for long. If you find that your daily walk doesn’t feel challenging anymore, or if your weight loss progress has stagnated, it could be that you just need to tweak your workout so that you burn more calories. Try the following tips to make your daily walk just a bit more challenging – and rewarding! 1. Choose a. 2. Increase your speed.

If you can walk at a pace of about 4.7 mph, you’ll burn as many calories per mile as you do when running. Do intervals (go as fast as you can for 30 to 60 seconds, then move at a more moderate speed for five minutes) to prevent fatigue and keep your metabolism revved long after your walk. 3. Pump your arms.

5 WAYS TO BURN MORE CALORIES Simple tweaks that turn your workout from a slow burn to a furnace. 1. Going for your lunchtime walk? Walking 20 minutes per day can burn an additional 700 calories per week. Make sure you swing your arms when you’re out walking.

Arms should swing naturally with each step. The number of calories you burn while walking depends on your weight, walking speed an d walking intensity. The calories you burn doing cardio exercise, including walking, can help you lose weight and burn off stubborn belly fat.While leisurely walking burns calories, you can also burn more calories in a shorter period of time by increasing your walking speed or doing a more intense walking. Whether you partner up, put a leash on your dog, or lace up your sneakers on your own, taking a walk can burn more calories than you think. Instead of simply strolling, put some pep in your step; by speeding up your walk from 3.5 MPH to 4, you’ll end up burning an extra 1,200 calories a month.

Just get going every day for only 20 minutes. As with other cardio workouts, increasing your walking pace also results in an increase of calories burned. You’ll go from burning 150 calories in 30 minutes of walking 3.5 mph to 190 calories for 30 minutes of walking at 4.5 mph, according to Harvard Health Publishing.

It may not seem like much, but those extra calories add up over the course.

List of related literature:

A casual walk needs about 3­4 calories, good speed walk about 5­6 calories, jogging requires about 7­9 calories and running requires about 10­12 calories per minute.

    Beige adipocytes in white adipose tissue (WAT) have received considerable recognition because of their potential protective effect against obesity. Pycnogenol (PYC), extracted from French maritime pine bark, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and can improve lipid profiles. However, the effect of PYC on obesity has never been explored. In this study, we investigated the effects of PYC on obesity and WAT browning in apolipoprotein E(ApoE-) deficient mice. The results showed that PYC treatment clearly reversed body weight and the mass of eWAT gain resulting from a high-cholesterol and high-fat diet (HCD), but no difference in food intake.

    The morphology results showed that the size of the adipocytes in the PYC-treated mice was obviously smaller than that in the HCD-fed mice. Next, we found that PYC upregulated the expression of genes related to lipolysis (ATGL and HSL), while it decreased the mRNA level of PLIN1. PYC significantly increased the expression of UCP1 and other genes related to beige adipogenesis. Additionally, PYC increased the expression of proteins related to the protein kinase A (PKA) signaling pathway. The findings suggested that PYC decreased obesity by promoting lipolysis and WAT browning. Thus, PYC may be a novel therapeutic target for obesity.

  • I sold my car so the only ways I get around right now are bicycle, walking, and public transit (bus, train, etc). I try to burn off the calories on the bike or walking long distances (5+ miles) on days where I don’t jump rope!

  • Thank you guys for all these amazing videos.

    And they all are really good. I especially do yoga, weight lifting and of course jump rope

  • I love this! I am doing this today. When I go to the gym don’t really know what to do as far as weights or machines so I rather walk.

  • Stop promoting energy drinks and candy bars they with or without caffeine in them are not doing shiz for weight loss or increass metabolism they do opposite.����

  • So drink a healthy amount off green tea and get some hot pepper into your diet, have some good sleep, and you can help your fat burning along…. or am I wrong?

  • Ive previously been on a no white diet for three months and lost 25 lbs and Id like to try keto now. Do you think my previous diet would make it hard in any way to get into ketosis?

  • Girls are often worried that they stop losing weight, and some seem to even gain weight on a diet, and all because of a “killed” or “broken” metabolism. It is believed that as a result of a long hungry diet combined with frequent workouts, an exchange it does not withstand substances and breaks down, that is, it becomes so slow that no effort helps to lose weight anymore, and a person begins to gain weight from one glance at the food. But there are other ways The main role in the additional decline in metabolism is played by the hormone leptin. Its role is to tell the brain how much energy is stored in the body.

  • Whow… nice shade throwing (around 10:40 to 10:45 in the video) at us who goes to bed at 3 am and sleep until noon, due to work and/or other reasons.

  • Let’s put the BS back in BooSter. And start putting pepper in our tea. (Seriously, this show is very informative. Keep up the good work.)

  • How does the claim at 10:36, that sleep deprivation harms insulin’s ability to respond to glucose, work? Insulin is a specific protein, and glucose is a specific carbohydrate. How does something as physiologically high-level as a lack of sleep interfere with the chemical interactions between two well-defined molecules?

  • Dietary accessories market should be allowed to make any claims they want and should not be held responsible for anything said in the claims (provided other laws aren’t violated). At the same time, all such products should be required to have a warning label, larger and more prominent than any other marking or label, saying that the consumer is entirely on their own (can’t even sue).

  • What about SLOWING DOWN your metabolism?
    Sleep deprivation definitely isn’t working for me as I’ve slept an average of 5 hours a night most of my life. I’ve always been underweight for my height and have wanted to change that for a long time.
    Is there any hope for skinny guys like me out there?

  • Body weight and jump rope is so effective
    The updated Crossrope app now has a mix of both so you can brun even more calories and it doesn’t get boring.


  • 25 percent of 1200 calories is 300 calories. Does that equal 75 carbs? Can i just count 300 calories and stop or do I have to count carbs too? Thanks

  • This video is patently wrong, we’ve known about real metabolic “boosters” for a century. Look at 2,4-Dintrophenol. It’ll ramp your metabolism so high your body cooks itself alive.

  • The one metabolism booster that did work was banned in I think the early 1900’s. It was called DNP, and it makes your mitochondria less efficient. They increase energy production to make up for this. However, all the waste heat generated can give you hyperthermia and kill you.

  • You can lose weight if you eat less and exercise more. But you have to do it for the rest of your life. Eat better food and drink water. Lift weights and don’t expect miracles. It’s best to never get fat to begin with. It’s a neverending battle.

  • Thank you Dr. I’m an insulin resistant diabetic and I’m not on any diabetic meds because I’m controlling my blood sugar by diet alone. Would you please tell which fresh fruits are low in carbs and low on the glycemic index?

  • I follow the doctors that advocate whole food plant based lifestyle. They say that the intramyocellular cellular lipids and the fats in your bloodstream causes insulin resistance. To me it makes sense that your muscle cells tell the insulin they already have enough energy (fats) and don’t need anymore. Hence blood sugar remains high and pancreas secretes more insulin.

    I used to have trouble loosing weight until I switched over to a whole food plant based lifestyle. I eat all sorts of starchy wholesome carbs: potatoes, yams, beans, rice, etc and have lost forty pounds in twenty two months. I have found that it’s a lifestyle I can sustain indefinitely.

    I am curious if a study has been done comparing blood sugar levels of individuals with similar hb1ac, divided into two groups, one group having consumed wholesome carbs laden with fats such as butter, oils, lard, and other group having consumed only wholesome carbs, and both having consumed same amount of calories?

    Should a fat adapted person be confined to more calories from fat and never be able to consume baked potatoes and salsa on regular basis anymore?

  • To be fair the stuff that ‘works’ tends to be hard to obtain or illegal, like DNP. And well DNP is not something any sane person would recommend

  • Can y’all talk about how CLA works? I work at GNC and we basically make it out to be this godly fat burner but I don’t believe it.

  • Great advice, Becky. I especially love what you said about the carbs coming from non starchy veggies. Thanks also for not being a fat phob… I’m becoming more and more aware of how important they are.

  • Some organs and tissues are very specific about which substrate they use. For example, liver cells will use most nutrients for energy EXCEPT glucose, whereas brain cells are the opposite: they depend almost exclusively on glucose, or ketone bodies under starvation conditions.

  • Welcome to the Admission Test for potential SciShow Hosts. It consists of an oral exam with the goal being, the measurement of Words per Minute. If you pass 800 WpM… You’re in.

  • These seem like good ratios to get someone onto these diets. But I wonder if after someone is successfully executing one of these diets (i.e. steady weight loss over several weeks), would you then consider decreasing fat grams while maintaining protein and carb grams at the same level to accelerate the success? I’m thinking more about keto as that is what I have been doing. In my thinking, after acclimating my body to burning ketones, why not let the fat be supplied from body fat?

  • Was skeptical as I am of most YouTube videos but this was surprisingly informative. Didn’t learn anything new but to those general laymen this is fantastic information. Great video

  • These are all great ways to move your body! Of course my favorite, and number one, is jumping rope. All the others are great too!! Just move your body peeps!
    As always, ��

  • Almost all of these are just caffeine and some times also contain yohimbi and ephedra The rest of the ingredients are just there to sound like its doing something like green tea extract and taurine in such small amounts that even if they did anything its just a trace amount.

  • This is great but how do u know how many calories you should have in a day? This is where I have trouble. I do Intermittent fasting everyday and do not count calories. So I’m having a hard time trying to figure out my Macros to make sure I stay low carb and high fat.

  • The best part is how these “fat burner” products say to use “with diet and exercise.” Of course the person doing diet & exercise is going to burn more fat than the person not using the product and not dieting & exercising!

  • My fingers (thumbs and index finger especially) and wrists are starting to ache a bit. How do you care for your hands before and after a workout?

  • In New Mexico, chili, green and red are staples. Jalapenos (whole, fresh) with every meal. I knew an old man who had a tortilla covered with chili and a dash of salt as a mid morning snack and drank coffee all day. That man lived into his late 90s on a small ranch in the middle of no where.

  • My understanding is that the drug 2,4-Dinitrophenol (DNP) does indeed work, but, as a result of increasing metabolism, it increases body heat to the point of killing the user if there’s even a slight mis-dose.

  • I really enjoy how you guys look at a holistic workout routine and how its good to mix it up to keep it fun and fresh! keep doing the thing dudes!

  • I cut my carbs down ate more healthy fats more energy better recovery from exercise moderate protein one week two weeks three weeks four weeks less 10 pounds wow feeling great onto second month

  • Not even mentioning DNP in the category of “boosting resting energy expenditure” For shame sci-show. You could have even gone into why it’s so dangerous!

  • If you’re serious about weight loss with only a supplement GOOGLE Efficacy of ‘Itrifal Saghir’, a combination of three medicinal plants in the treatment of obesity; A randomized controlled trial.
    It’s only one study but it supports that if your obese you can lose weight by simply taking 5 grams of triphala with breakfast and dinner. Personally I dose 3 grams with every meal and I’ve lost nearly 18 lbs in 4 months. I’m not a doctor but thought you’d like to know it’s possible to lose weight with a supplement without a change on diet or exercise.

  • Hey I really enjoyed this video! I recently started my journey by calorie deficit to weight loss and I have a treadmill at home I have been doing 30 minutes of 10incline at 2.5 I have been holding the rails though I had no idea it affects everything! So thank you so much for this information. My question is should I lower the incline or the speed to avoid holding the rail? Again thank you for this awesome info:D

  • I have now been on keto for 21 days now. Stuck to it rigidly, gone through the keto flue, completly given up all sugar, and carbs and not cheated in any way. I amazed myself at how strong I was and how easy I thought it was after thinking it would be so hard. I had no scales until last week,the 15th, jan and then weighed myself again this morning the 21st… I was down 1lb. I must admit this made me feel like… What’s the point in bothering? I know its great not eating sugar and it will be fantastic long term for my health but I expected better, considering I have given up so much that I used to eat before. I have to say I am devastated, and feel like its not working.

  • Finally I understand how to break down my marcos. Thank you so much! I am so glad I found you! I have watched many of your videos, and you have helped me with my PCOS as well. Looking forward to your next video!

  • Go to to try out Brilliant’s Daily Challenges. The first 200 subscribers get 20% off an annual Premium subscription.

  • I’ll back the caffeine one. I drink 4 sodas a day and eat basically whenever I want and am only right at average weight. Though I’m an insomniac so I can’t really back the sleep one. Even when not on caffeine I still can’t sleep. I only get dreams like once a month if even and when I wake up I usually feel worse than when I went to sleep (but that goes away after about 15-30 minutes). Possibly connected to me never really feeling tired. I just sleep when I want to. Have gone more than 24 hours and only stopped when my eyes started to dry out. But hey I stay out a solid 10-18 hours afterwards.

  • They do work… If they include ephedrine or acacia rigidula ( amphetamine close residue). But it’s your choice if you want risk heart attack or stroke

  • Jump rope is super fun, and actually I started it because it helped me with my footwork for my favourite sport, fencing. Fencing is super fun (stabbing people?? Yes, please!) and it burns a lot of calories. Jump rope is a way that I like to make sure my footwork is always fast, and I like to learn tricks and stuff too. Thank you very much for these great videos!

  • Hi Doc, So Glad to have you back. Always a pleasure to hear your articulate explanations. Would like to hear more from you on Intermittent Fasting.

  • Even though I’ve heard this explained in various ways over and over by others, for some reason your explanation really sank in to my brain. You make it so simple to understand! Thanks so much, glad I found your channel.

  • un saludo muy especial a mis hermanos felicitaciones por su canal me encanta son los mejores de youtube ya estoy activo saltando la soga para ponerme a tope y perder toda esa grasa gracias por sus concejos y su motivacion exitos y bendiciones cuenten con todo mi apoyo saludos desde VENEZUELA.

  • They could have mentioned that people have caused themselves liver damage with green tea supplements not something you can feasibly achieve by drinking green tea, BTW, so no worries there

  • DNP is a metabolism worker and 100% works. It’s also very easy to overdose on where you cook yourself to from the inside, and this process is irreversible. This is why it’s illegal, but they DO exist.

  • 2,4-dinitrophenol can raise your metabolism by uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation. I ruined my life with it because I got my hands on some when I was anorexic. I had no body fat to speak of, so I instead burned my muscle tissue extremely rapidly, went into liver failure and nearly died.

  • Exercise (weight training), amount of calories, and type of calories all impact metabolism. I really see it better/clearer since I started Keto and IF.

  • @ 6:45 capsaicin helps burn an extra 50 calories a day…. actual calories or kcal/food calories? 50 actual calories is a rounding error. 50 kcal/food calories out of Fitbit’s 4000 calories I burn a day isnt really a whole lot either.

  • Hi. Thank you for this video. I intermittent fast 16-20 hours a day but I’ve been struggling on “how” to eat in my eating window. I feel this may help! My question: are we counting NET carbs or counting the carbs as a whole number (not subtracting fiber).

  • Awesome video!! So important to not just do one exercise and call it a day. Mix it up! The body gets bored, just like the mind. Keep it moving!!

  • I have recently found your videos. Thank you so much for taking your time and making these videos in such an easy to understand way. I will continue watching them to learn more. If you follow low carb and get to your desired weight, what do the percentages look like then?

  • Great tip! I accidentally do that because I usually walk to get to the gym. So after my workout I have to walk to get home lol. And I find listening to music while walking makes it a lot easier as well. I hate walking if I’m not listening to music haha.

  • Good and helpful info! The problem for most is they don’t understand total carbs vs net carbs which is total carbs minus fiber equals net carbs.

  • You are so sweet and seem so nice, very useful advice, thanks. When you mentioned healthy fats, i.e., avocados, nuts, etc., you forgot about organic, unrefined, cold-pressed coconut oil which is what I take every day, along with nuts and avocados which I really enjoy too, but of course, not all 3 together, because I watch my calorie intake. I am 57, and weigh 99 pounds.

  • I can’t hear any sound on this video unless I turn the volume way up and even then it’s hard to hear Dr. Becky. Is anyone else experiencing this? it’s not happening on any of her other videos that I play.

  • A weird thought crossed my mind (after hearing obesity called an epidemic, which is a term that usually is used for diseases).

    How come you never hear of diseases infecting fat tissue? Fat stores all that energy so why do no bacteria try and access it?

  • The video is about nothing. Marketing is lies? No way! Of course nothing you eat will make you leaner alone. But combine with excersize, sleep and fasting and the result will come.

  • Hi I’ve been watching your videos. I under stand alot of the information. I just want to know what’s the difference between low carb diet and ketogenic and Atkins I can’t get the difference. I lost 8lbs this week just cutting back but I want to lose 15 lbs to reach my goal. Please help.

    Cannabidiol promotes browning in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.

    Parray HA1, Yun JW2.

    Author information


    Recruitment of the brown-like phenotype in white adipocytes (browning) and activation of existing brown adipocytes are currently being investigated as a means to combat obesity. Thus, a wide variety of dietary agents that contribute to browning of white adipocytes have been identified. The present study was designed to investigate the effects of cannabidiol (CBD), a major nonpsychotropic phytocannabinoid of Cannabis sativa, on induction of browning in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. 

    CBD enhanced expression of a core set of brown fat-specific marker genes (Ucp1, Cited1, Tmem26, Prdm16, Cidea, Tbx1, Fgf21, and Pgc-1α) and proteins (UCP1, PRDM16, and PGC-1α). Increased expression of UCP1 and other brown fat-specific markers contributed to the browning of 3T3-L1 adipocytes possibly via activation of PPARγ and PI3K. In addition, CBD increased protein expression levels of CPT1, ACSL, SIRT1, and PLIN while down-regulating JNK2, SREBP1, and LPL. 

    These data suggest possible roles for CBD in browning of white adipocytes, augmentation of lipolysis, thermogenesis, and reduction of lipogenesis. In conclusion, the current data suggest that CBD plays dual modulatory roles in the form of inducing the brown-like phenotype as well as promoting lipid metabolism. Thus, CBD may be explored as a potentially promising therapeutic agent for the prevention of obesity.


    Browning; Cannabidiol; Lipogenesis; Thermogenesis

  • There are 3 compounds that actually raise metabolism:
    all of which are illegal.
    Intermittent fasting is the drug free version, 14 hours of water fasting daily raised my thyroid activity per blood tests, significantly after just 3 days.
    Give it a shot it wont hurt really, but you also need a tiny bit of workout and a make sure you eat till you are satisfied when not fasting, but only eat vegetables, beans, meat, milk and eggs, and limit carbs(no sugar AT ALL PERIOD), good luck!

  • Thani you for your help, Carter. I use to walk 20 min to get to the gym and the 20 min again to return home. At rhe end those 40 minute walk are like 200calories and my heart frequency maintains of fat burn

  • I use energy drinks so I can drive in the morning, also there’s this one flavor of Reign, with jalapeno extract innit, pretty banger

  • Perhaps u should have added swimming as well.
    Swimming is very taxing on the overall body and gives a boost to your metabolism as well. One of the best cardio/fun thing you can do to burn calories

  • I had graves disease for 7 years and developed hashimotos disease and battled both for a few months. When graves disease lost the battle and I was left with a dead shriveled thyroid. They said my metabolism would slow down and I would gain weight easily. However 15 years later now, that has never happened. I still can’t gain weight easliy. I always figured they don’t know as much about metabolism as I thought.
    Those pills have to be so bad for people!!
