People burn about 10 to 15 calories per minute during recreational-level aerobic training. Caloric expenditure remains elevated after exercise— depending on duration and intensity. Japanese researchers found that 24-hour fat burning is greater following exercise on an empty stomach than exercising after a meal. Research subjects exercised for 60 minutes at 50 percent of maximum effort, either after or before a meal. Digestive status had no effect on 24-hour caloric expenditure. Exercise on an empty stomach if you want to burn more fat. (Metabolism, published online)
