making up calories

Postby aramat1980 » Tue Apr 10, 2007 3:02 pm

Hi, just wondering, I have a friend here at work who is putting me through cardio/weights training starting today (feel silly doing what he tells me...) and the cardio he's got me doing is going to burn over 500calories what the....... counting what i've eaten today, it's 900, so i only have 300 left. if I'm doing this exercise I then have another 500 to eat. how the devil am i supposed to eat that much for dinner?!?!?!?!?!?! we have to eat the minimum of 1200 at least don't we?

The calories you burn during exercise are a bonus!

You should just stick to your 1200 and you will lose weight because you are burning off your fat stores.

Just because you burn 500 cal doing exercise doesn't mean you then have to eat an extra 500 calories on top of your 1200.

Good Luck with the training.

I have to agree with Dancer, any calories burned for exercise are just a bonus

Today I have done 569 calories worth of exercise (according to Calorie King) and have only eaten about 850 so I still have about 1000 calories to eat if I eat my exercise calories. I could only do that now (I only have dinner left to eat) if I devour some of the easter eggs in the fridge to make up the excess after my dinner wich will be about 400 calories. That would be a bit silly after all the hard work of the day.

Don't eat those exercise calories and it will pay off in the long run.

I agree with the ladies so it is up to you whether you want to eat them or not as long as you are getting in you 1200 calories through the day.
