Engage in The Right Kind of Physical Activity for Weight Loss on Keto

In today’s world, the vast majority of us lead a sedentary lifestyle, spending long hours sitting at a desk, driving, or watching TV.

This lack of physical activity can have a significant impact on weight loss, especially when following the keto diet. Exercise is essential for boosting metabolism, burning calories, and maintaining overall health, so it’s crucial to make time for physical activity every day.

You don’t have to spend hours in the gym to reap the benefits of exercise. Even 30 minutes of moderate exercise, such as walking or cycling, can help increase your heart rate and boost metabolism, making it easier to lose weight.

The best kind of exercise for fat loss? High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). 

Several studies have supported the effectiveness of HIIT for promoting fat loss. For example, a study published in the Journal of Obesity found that overweight individuals who participated in a 12-week HIIT program lost significantly more body fat than those who participated in a traditional steady-state cardio program. Another study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that HIIT was more effective than steady-state cardio for reducing body fat in obese women.

Additionally, incorporating resistance training, such as weightlifting, into your exercise routine can help build lean muscle mass, which in turn can help increase metabolism and promote weight loss.
