Number Of Calories Burned Doing Crunches
Why you are searching for the answer of how many calories do you burn when doing crunches? Do you care how much calories you are burning while doing abdominal exercises?
You have to stop worry about how many calories you burn and to worry how many calories you take. Why? Because your burn no more than 50 calories when doing crunches. You can do crunches for 30 minutes and you will burn calories equal to a glass of fruit juice.
The only benefit of crunches is that they make your abs harder and bigger and if you burn the fat over your abdominal muscles you can see you six pack abs. Every person has 6 pack abs. But not everybody can see them, because they lie under the fat.
Now you know the wrong question:
How many calories do you burn when doing crunches?
And you have to ask yourself the right questions:
How many calories I eat every day?
And how these calories are distributed: calories from protein, calories from carbohydrates and calories from fat.
Calorie Weight Loss Rule
To loose weight follow eating 40% protein, 40% carbohydrates and 20% fats per day distributed in 5-6 meals.
How many calories to take in order to loose weight?
It is your body weight in pounds*10
For example if your weight is 150 pounds you have to eat 150*10=1500 calories per day
How to distribute 1500 calories?
1 gram protein is 4 calories
1 gram carbohydrate is 4 calories
1 gram fat is 9 calories
Protein=1500*40%= 600 calories or 150 grams of protein per day
Carbs=1500*40%= 600 calories or 150 grams of carbs per day
Fats=1500*20%=300 calories or 33 grams of fats per day
If you follow these calories’ distribution and exercise regularly (3 or 4 times per week) you will loose weight not only in your abs but in all areas – your stomach will be flat and you will enjoy your life.
Remember not to count how many calories your burn when doing crunches but to count how many calories you eat every day.
