Carbs burned (per gram) during exercise?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Anyone have a good source for determining how many you will burn? I have read Ketosis, and it just lists a general 40grams for athletes before training, but that seems like saying everyone needs the same amount of calories or percent of protein. Does anyone have a calculation or general guideline that isn't so "one size fits all"?

That calculator deals with calories burned. I believe the OP is wondering about carbs burned.

Of course it further depends on your fitness and diet. Trying to do the sums is doomed to failure if you take it too seriously.

Note that cardio burns calories during exercise, but weight training burns calories during exercise AND several hours after exercise since your metabolism goes to overdrive. Happens with cardio as well, but not to the same extent. No idea how much calories we're talking about, though.

Its always going to be a mix of glycogen and fats burned during exercise and it depends on what type of exercise. For instance, walking burns primarily fat as long as you are strong enough to walk. Squatting your 5 rep max is mostly going to burn glycogen. Everything else falls somewhere in between the two.

That being what it is, here is a good calculator. http://www.prohealth.com/weightloss/tools/exercise/calculator1_2.cfm
