New You Beauty Tip: If you want to burn more calories for the rest of the day.Exercise vigorously for 45 minutes.

You want to push yourself harder because you know that intense work outs mean more calories burned. At the same time,you can’t always see or feel the benefit.  Running burns 50 percent more calories than walking, according to a 2004 Syracuse University study. More significant, however, is what happens to your metabolism after a strenuous workout like bicycling. Research from the Appalachian State University’s Human Performance lab studies shows that students who vigorously bicycled for 45 minutes burned 37% more calories over the next 14 hours than they would have without a workout. The test subjects, in effect, changed the inner workings of their metabolism.
