Jogging is one of the tried and true exercises that work to lose weight and increase health. Many experts say you have to jog for at least 20-30 minutes in order to get a good workout that will burn enough calories and provide enough exercise for your heart and body. With that said, how many calories does jogging for 30 minutes burn? Let’s take a look.
It’s difficult to provide an exact answer because the number of calories burned from physical activity is different for every one. The number of calories burned depends on gender, fitness level, size, exercise intensity, and age. All of these things contribute to how many calories are burned. As a rule of thumb, you will burn about 225-250 calories for every half hour that you jog if you are between 140-150 pounds. This assumes you are jogging at a medium pace and weigh 150 pounds. A 200 pound person jogging at the same pace for 30 minutes would burn around 340-360 calories. The bigger you are the harder your body has to work, which results in more calories being burned.
A 250-360 calorie burning workout is very good. This calorie burn combined with a healthy diet should easily create enough of a calorie deficit to help you lose weight in a healthy fashion. Anyone attempting to start jogging should speak with their health care provided right away.
