Thumbs up "Afterburn" effect

Hi guys!

I've read that it is possible to burn extra calories after doing exercise/walking/running. For example, if you burn 400 calories, you will burn extra 100 calories through the day (because walking boosts your metabolism). Do you know anything about this "afterburn" effect? I burn approximately 80 calories per mile. If afterburn effect works it means I will burn totally 100 calories per mile. What do you think about that?

You do have a temporary boost in metabolism/burning calories after exercise, but I don't know how to calculate it or anything

You only get a metabolic boost from very intense exercise thought the mechanism known as EPOC.

400 calories burned won't burn anywhere close to 100 and walking isn't going to cause EPOC to happen at all.

EPOC's effects are lowered significantly when you're in a caloric deficit.

Bottom line: this is not something worth worry about.

I must have had it. Running 2 miles in 20 minutes I was sweating my ar$e off and in need of an ambulance. The afterburner was lit. Topgun.
