HOW CAN YOU BURN 100 CALORIES?
The harder the exercise you complete and the longer amount of time spent exercising, the more calories you will burn. Each minute of high-intensity vigorous exercise burns about 10 calories. If you push hard, get your heart-rate up, feel yourself sweating, and give it your all, you can definitely burn 100 calories in 10 minutes with this workout below.
Some fitness watches and devices can give you a pretty good estimate of how many calories you burn during a certain activity. You can also find some calorie calculators to enter your individual workouts for a pretty close estimate on how many calories you burned during exercise. Good luck! Overall the important thing is that you are working on your fitness by getting your heart rate up daily for at least 10 minutes.
HOW CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT WITH 100 CALORIE WORKOUTS?
3500 calories equals 1 pound of fat, so in order to lose one pound, you have to create a 3500 calorie deficit. If you burn 100 calories per day by exercising, that adds up to 700 calories per week. In just 5 weeks that would equal 3500 calories, which is equal to one pound of weight lost.
This is assuming that your calories consumed stay the same. If you want to lose weight faster you should eat 500-1000 calories less per day, then you can realistically lose 1-2 pounds per week.
