"exercise does not contribute to weight loss"

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

I definitely believe you need a good balance between eating healthy and exercise. There are certain types of exercise that will help you lose more fat, compared to certain exercises that will help with cardio health. Circuit training that includes plyometrics is incredible for both! Great for losing the pounds and toning the muscles!! A good PT can set up a great circuit in one session...and then you just have to follow it, and increase the amount of times you do it as you start to feel healthier!

I saw that article. I am not good about picking a time to "exercise" because I am soooo busy everyday. When I feel like my jeans are getting tight, I do what has always worked for me, I eat less food. I try to use common sense about junk food and desserts, which I love, but I won't make myself a rule that I can't have any because that never works. I just tell myself to eat less. simple.

I'm no expert here but I think the statement about exercise alone not promoting weight loss isn't to say that it doesn't help. Usually after a big workout people tend to go home & kind of binge eat because their bodies feel fatigued after working so hard & there is a need to refuel. The mistake most people make is going home & eating WAY too much (even if it is healthier food choices) OR people "treat" themselves by eating foods that aren't so healthy.

 

The key to losing weight by working out is to burn more calories than you consume. If you consume, let's just say 2000 calories in one day, but you only do a workout that burns 1000...then, no, you're not going to experience any weight loss--it's impossible! "Dieting" or "watching what you eat" PLUS exercise will definitely help you shed the lbs. but ONLY if you are burning more than you consume!

 

I believe that eating junk food & exercising isn't going to help anyone lose weight. Exercise improves mood & I think when we feel better emotionally, we tend to eat better, feel better physically, and have more energy...all of those things combined plus a healthy diet will absolutely help a person shed weight. BUT you can't just do weight training...you can do all the sit-ups you want but you won't see those ab muscles unless you work in some cardio to your weekly schedule...cardio helps burn off stored fat.

I hope this helps...and makes sense! haha

But you also have to include in the calories in and calories out theory that everyone's basal metabloic rate is different. So say my basal metabolic rate is 1500 cals/day and I only eat 100 cals/day then I would still be burning 500 cals a day by doing nothing. I'm just pointing out that most people aren't going to exercise 1000 + calories every single day and basal metabolic rates (the rate at which a body burns calories at rest) is part of the equation too. I agree with the rest of what you said though! :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
