In fact, when it comes to losing weight, I believe you still have a certain understanding, but why do you gain weight after exercise? We will introduce relevant contents in detail below, hoping to help you.
Why do you gain weight after exercise
During exercise, the liver glycogen of the human body will be consumed in large quantities, which is the first substance to be consumed. The total amount of liver glycogen in the human body is about 250 to 400 grams. After exercise, liver glycogen will decompose rapidly. During the whole process, hepatic glycogen and water stored water in a ratio of 1:3. In other words, the increase of glycogen and water storage will lead to weight gain, which is also a normal physiological phenomenon.
Weight loss and fat reduction are two concepts. Weight loss refers to the reduction of our total weight, including fat, muscle, water and other substances. Losing weight is not to reduce muscle and bone, nor is it to reduce body moisture. Reducing fat is to reduce the content of fat in the body. Fitness exercise not only consumes body fat, but also can improve the density of human bones, increase the mass and volume of muscles, enhance the function of human muscles, and improve the proportion of muscles in the body. If the muscle content in the body increases, the weight will naturally increase. The muscle is heavier than the fat, but the muscle with the same weight is much smaller than the fat with the same mass. Therefore, some friends will find that they become heavier, but their bodies will become more compact.
In addition, pay attention to diet control, including reasonable and balanced nutrition, eat less oil, salt and sugar, eat three meals regularly, do not eat snacks, and try to reduce outdoor entertainment. Brush your teeth early after dinner and don’t eat before bed. At the same time, the thickness of staple food should be properly matched. Fresh vegetables and fruits should not be less or more, and meat, eggs and milk should also be appropriate. Diet and exercise should be combined to help lose weight and avoid weight gain after exercise.
When you want to choose exercise to lose weight, you must make a plan. You should exercise at least 3 to 4 times a week to burn fat. In addition, if you want to increase your muscle mass, you need to increase your exercise intensity. Regular exercise can help the body burn fat and calories at the same time. We should also pay special attention to personal living habits, go to bed early and get up early to reduce staying up late. If we don’t take more vigorous exercise, the weight loss effect will be better.
