Does Pilates help you burn fat? If I exercise regularly, I will lose weight?

Unfortunately, pilates exercises do not support fat burning. These exercises are aimed at strengthening the stabilizing muscles, i.e. those responsible for maintaining the correct figure, taking into account the natural curves of the spine, correct positioning of the shoulders and shoulder blades, and the neutral position of the pelvis. In order to burn fat tissue, you need aerobic training. It can be training on stationary machines, i.e. a treadmill, bicycle, cross trainer or walking, cycling or rollerblading in the field. It is important to perform such training systematically 2-3 times a week for at least 40-50 minutes and combine it with rational nutrition. Reduce the consumption of carbohydrates in the form of sugar, sweets, wheat flour, white bread, pasta, fruit and fruit juices as well as fats. Try to eat foods that contain as much dietary fiber as possible, i.e. coarse-grain bread, groats, dark pasta, brown rice, oatmeal, raw vegetables. The source of protein should be mostly cooked or grilled lean meat or fish. Also remember to eat in small amounts 4-5 times a day so that the interval between meals does not exceed 3 hours. It would also be worth setting the same time of eating.
