I know its about regular exercise consistently over time etc etc blah blah but last weekend I did 2.5 hour 17km jog to Jells Park and back (it was supposed to be 12km but we got lost) and it burnt a total of 1500cal's. This equates to what, a meal of pizza ?. A Quarter Pounder Meal deal ?. Considering how buggered I felt afterwards I really thought it would be millions upon millions of calories and as a reward I should of lost 15kilos of fat. In reality it burnt what - 200grams ? (using a rough guide of 7700cal = 1 kilo).
are u serious about this......so basically exercise burns LITTLE calories>.?????
But does it make a lot of difference if i exercise until my wholte t shirt is soaked with sweat??
Hang on Hang on - look with exercise you have to look at it from overall perspective. Its not what you do in one session, its what you do over the course of a week, a month, a year. Take walking for 45 minutes a day. If your carrying a bit of extra weight and walking briskly you can burn about 400calories each time. Do that everyday and theres almost 1/2 kilo ON TOP of your dieting.
EXERCISE IS GOOD - IGNORE WHAT I SAID, I was just having a whinge....
