Aerobic exercise and fitness can be contrasted with anaerobic, of which strength training and short distance running are the most widely known examples. The two types of exercise differ by the duration and intensity of muscular contractions involved, as well as by how energy is generated within the muscle. How does this relate to us in terms of fat loss? When you train with weights you tear more muscle down that must be built back up. The muscle breakdown and subsequent repair of tissue leads to an increase in metabolism.
The muscle is broken down and then protein repairs the tissue. This is the reasoning behind the correct protein value in all of the fuel food.com meals. The big thing to remember from this is weight training which is anaerobic training in general burns fat while the body is at rest. Aerobic training for the most part is only a matter of calories in and calories out. The main benefit of cardiovascular training is of course heart health, but it does not offer as much in terms of metabolic activity. The largest part of fat loss is, of course, what you put into your body. The idea of all calories being created equal is history.
The common understanding is that a calorie of sugar is not the same as a calorie of protein or a calorie of fat or metabolism. The best way to lose fat is to find the program that best works for you.
