Go Faster, No Go Slower: Each Has It's Place!

Patients ask about the optimal exercise strategy to lose weight and of course trying to take in fewer calories than you burn up, no matter how you burn your calories, is ultimately the "correct" answer. But studies show that slower walking: 18-20 min/ mile burns more fat , and increases insulin sensitivity (how well you burn your calories). But going faster (even for short bursts) triggers you to secrete more growth hormone, which promotes bone formation and overall improves calorie utilization that way. And for those who really want to see increases in their lean body mass U of Michigan Kinesiology study said you really have to actually exercise fairly strenously, for example--3 miles/day—5 days a week if you are a runner. So all exercise has it's place!
