The Best Workout For Weight Loss

< Back to the article list

If you want to lose weight in 2019, try a high-intensity interval workout; it’s been proven to burn mega calories fast.

If your goal for the new year is to lose weight fast, you’re in luck! There’s a workout that’s actually proven to help with weight loss. It’s called high-intensity interval training, and here’s how it works.

High-intensity interval training, or HIIT, was one of the top fitness trends in 2017, and it’s still extremely popular today. HIIT is a workout that’s broken up into intervals with work and rest periods. During the “work periods,” the goal is to give 100 percent, all-out effort, followed by short “rest periods,” where you let your body recover from the intensity you just put it through.

Not only has this style of training been proven to burn mega calories, but it’s also connected to excess post-exercise oxygen consumption. Exercise what?

“Similar to how a car’s engine remains warm after being turned off, once a workout is over and you’re back in your daily routine, your body’s metabolism can continue to burn more calories [than] when at complete rest,” explains the American Council on Exercise. In layman's terms, when you work hard enough during a workout, your body ends up in an oxygen debt. In order to get the oxygen it needs to get back to homeostasis, your body goes into overdrive, burning even more calories.

And if HIIT starts helping you lose weight, pair that with alli. For every five pounds you lose, alli can help you lose two to three pounds more when used as directed.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to make 2019 your healthiest year yet!
