I keep coming across wrong thinking about the fat burning zone in multiple areas so someone upstairs must be telling me something. There is a sliding scale from 100% fat, which is being burned at the very low end of exertion off the chart above, all the way up to 100% carbs which are being burned at the top of the exertion chart in the anaerobic zone. But let’s put this guy back on the treadmill and have him move twice as fast at around 6mph. To top it all off, he burned twice as many calories as he did in the fat burning zone, which will help him lose fat faster. So the bottom line is, in general, ditch the idea of a fat burning zone and learn to work at higher intensities. A high percentage of people who take up exercise are looking to burn fat and therefore many fitness magazines, especially bodybuilding magazines, have praised the low intensity “magic” fat burning zone. The problem with staying in the fat burning zone is that while you are burning a higher percentage of fat, you don’t burn a lot of calories. Try interval training to increase your calorie burn, while also taking advantage of the fat burning zone during the low intensity interval periods.

The usual recommendation is to keep your heart rate really low like around 50-65% of your maximum heart rate and if you can still hold a conversation then you’re at the right level. At the one end you can think of walking or slow jogging and at the other end imagine full out sprinting. So working out in the fat burning zone for 20:00 got us 64 calories of fat burned and working out above that burned 90 calories of fat — nearly 50% more fat calories burned!!
A workout in the fat burning zone would have to be twice as long to get this caloric expenditure.
From experience I can tell you that if people can work out 3x a week or 6x a week, they’re more likely to actually make 3x a week because of their busy schedules. Low intensity activities such as walking burn a high percentage of calories from fat when compared to more intense exercises such as sprinting, which burns a higher percentage of calories from carbohydrates. You must burn 3,500 calories to lose a pound and although walking can get you there, it doesn’t give you the biggest bang for your buck. Their purpose is to help change the culture towards health and fitness in the African-American community, showcase those who are making an impact, and promote healthier living.
These better sources are like a ligthhouse on a stormy night — they help you navigate your way through all the ignorance.


All the ranges in between show a split of fat and carbs being burned with the percentage of fat going down and the percentage of carbs being burned going up as the exertion increases. About 67% of those calories are from fat so that would be 64 calories of fat burned and 33% are from carbs, making that 32 calories from carbs burned. So the percentage of fat burned is lower, making this seem like a worse option than the fat burning zone.
And there’s always the option of working harder 3x a week and doing 2-3 recovery workouts at a lower heart rate each week. The best bet is to have the best of both worlds; periods of low intensity followed by high intensity exercise.
They also aim to serve as a platform for African-American fitness and health professionals and enthusiasts who are otherwise overlooked in traditional fitness media.
Since the percentage of fat is higher than the percentage of carbs, this looks like he’s burning crazy fat.
