05.Energy and exercise
Ultimately, protein products are a source of energy, which you’ll need to burn off if you want to avoid putting on weight.
- An average woman (weighing about 65 kg) would need to put in around half an hour of light running to burn off an AUSSIE BODIES Protein Revival Drink
- An average man (weighing about 80 kg) would need to spend slightly longer than that on a rowing machine to use up the kilojoules consumed in a MUSASHI P40 Protein Bar.
The table below gives an estimate of the total kilojoules used over 30 minutes by an average man and woman for different activities.
||Kilojoules used over 30 minutes|
||kJ / kg used
||Total kJ used if you’re 65 kg*
||Total kJ used if you’re 80 kg**|
|Aerobics, low impact
|Running, light (8 km/h)
|Running, moderate (12 km/h)
|Weight training, light to moderate
* Average woman
** Average man
To calculate the kilojoules used per 30 minutes of exercise for your own body weight, multiply the kJ/kg figure by your body weight in kilograms.
