Burn: New Research Blows the Lid Off How We Really Burn Calories, Lose Weight, and Stay Healthy Free Audiobook Download by Herman Pontzer
New research from Harvard and U.C. Davis is the first to provide a comprehensive explanation of how calorie burning works, breaking it down into three parts: how weight loss occurs; what is actually happening with food every time we eat; and why exercise may not be as effective as we thought.
Herman Pontzer is a renowned anthropologist and research scientist specializing in human biology and the cause of obesity, disease and other age-related conditions. His latest book, Burn, addresses how different foods affect metabolism and fat storage, as well as using evidence-based strategies to reduce body weight.
In the book "Burn", Herman Pontzer describes how to maximize your calorie expenditure in order to be healthy, lose weight, and stay fit. The author of "Burn" is a physiologist who uses research and his own experience to lay out how our bodies really burn calories. He also reviews what types of foods actually cause us to gain weight, like processed foods, too much sugar, or not enough protein.
The second most in-depth, and certainly the most entertaining, audiobook on this list, Burn: New Research Blows the Lid Off How We Really Burn Calories, Lose Weight, and Stay Healthy is narrated by P.J. Ochlan who narrates a conversation between himself and Pontzer. This audiobook is an easy 30 minutes listen that will leave you with a renewed sense of happiness.
In the book, one of the most compelling pieces of research is a study by Harvard's Dr. John Jakicic that examined how people who used treadmills burned more calories than people who jogged on a treadmill or did nothing at all. The study found that running on a treadmill burned an estimated 15 percent less fat than doing nothing while walking on a treadmill burned almost 25 percent less fat than doing nothing. What's even more interesting is how much time it took to burn off those calories based on the speed you walked or ran.
It is an interesting book with a unique and refreshing perspective. With his research, Pontzer explains how our modern sedentary lifestyle has led to the rise of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other health issues. He provides step-by-step instruction for understanding how our metabolism works so you can use this knowledge to lose weight, achieve a healthier life style, and live longer without medications.
