Exercise

Postby tryingveryhard » Sat Mar 15, 2008 10:55 pm

Just had a small question.
When exercising does the weight come off immediately ? ie. if i weigh myself before and after exercise, should i be less?
Or does it take a few days for that workout to effect the body?

hmm i dont really know to be honest!

but, if i work out before i get weighed at WW, i dont drink any water, because that would add to your weight, and usually i drink lots of water!

I think it would take a few days to process though, because if you eat lots of really really bad food, you dont get fat over night

I don't know how long it takes but I would guess a few days.

Reason being, when we lose fat it is broken down into water and carbon dioxide. So we bascially breath out, sweat out, urinate out things that make up fat, and that, I imagine would take a few days for the body to do.

I've experimented before and weighed in before and after exercise and generally there is no difference.

Usually I weigh around 500g less after exercise... but that is due to dehydration.

think about it this way.
A pound of fat (1/2 a kilo) is lost with every 3500 calories burnt.
If you walk for an hour, just say on average you burn 400 calories.
So... to lose a pound of fat through exercuse you would need to walk for 8 and a half hours.

I would say you would need to wait a few weeks before seeing any real changes. Have you changed your diet too? Exercise alone probably wont do a lot.

To be honest I'm no expert so I'm not really quite sure but I would think that on a weekly basis the weight would come off, so it stands to reason that during the week it would slowly come off.
For instance if you exercised everyday, your weight might not budge for the first 2 days but then the 3rd day it might slowly decrease until weight in day.
I don't know I might be completey of base though :oops:
Great question though...very interesting. I've often wondered this.
