Energy Consumption Versus Expenditure

Postby ashleyb » Fri May 14, 2010 6:14 pm

Am I guaranteed to lose weight if my daily energy intake is less than my daily energy output, regardless of physical activity?
Will the weight I lose be fat or could it end up being muscle/fluid?

Thanks for your replies!

Without any form of exercise, you are probably going to start losing muscle, bone, tissue and all that other stuff. You could end up being "skinny fat". That means you would be at goal weight but your body fat % would still be too high, and your muscle mass lower.

You've really got to exercise to get healthy, even if you start out small. Every little bit helps.

In answer to your question, you will lose weight, but you will most likely screw up your metabolism in the process. If you exercise you won't be losing all that muscle... and muscle helps us to burn calories! You want to keep your muscle so that you can lose FAT
