Thanks for selling this product. Great weight loss kit. It's easy to follow and comes with all the information you need, including a shopping list. I lost weight on my first week. Jeanette, July 12, I already lost 4 pounds. I was not expecting much from the 5-day Nutrisystem box, however I was pleasantly surprised by my results.
I completely forgot to measure to see how many inches I lose, but I definitely lost 4 pounds. I decided to try out the 5-day box for one month and see what kind of results I get! Highly recommend and have actually recommended to a couple friends already!
Kate, September 12, I really liked each of the items in this package. It's a great price. The fact that it includes family recipes for dinner is so practical! That way I can enjoy the same dinner as my family. I've bought this three times! Hope they make more like this. AFenwick, August 12, I found very little that I liked at all. The benefit of working in the fat-burning zone is that you target stored fat and thus encourage weight loss.
But, keep in mind, that if you work in a higher zone, you burn a greater amount of calories overall—which is important to weight loss. Although a lower percentage of these calories will come from fat sources, the total number of fat calories burned will likely be the same or greater. Take, for example, a person who burns calories in a minute walk at a heart rate of 55 percent of maximum. Seventy-five percent of those calories, or 75 calories, may come from fat.
However, a person who runs those same 15 minutes and burns calories may burn only 50 percent of those calories from fat, but will burn a total of fat calories in the same amount of time. A study based on 36 relatively fit runners published in the "Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research" in October demonstrated that determination of a person's exact fat-burning zone may only be performed in a laboratory.
In this study, significant overlap between the fat burning and cardio zones existed, indicating that a person working within 60 and 80 percent of maximal heart rate is likely to be maximizing fat oxidation. Unless you are training for a figure or body building competition where working in the fat-burning zone exclusively helps you preserve every bit of lean body mass, it is best to focus on improving fitness and calorie burn with varying levels of intensity.
If you choose to work in the lower range of the cardio zone—the fat-burning zone—be prepared to work out longer to burn enough calories to affect weight loss. Incorporating high cardio and lower cardio zone exercise into a workout routine will offer the most aerobic and weight loss benefit. Video of the Day. Fat Burning Heart Rates for Men.
