I find this really interesting, I agree with it, however I personally am very different. On training days I find myself more strict with my diet, I feel usually more motivated and don't want to sabotage all the work i've done.

I leave the sabotaging to my non-workout days.. I wish it were the other way around though lol

So when I say anything (I'm referring to exercise) would be better than nothing..

And your response is, its not..


Are you trying to say that going for a walk would produce 0 benefit?


It won't produce any weight maintenance benefit per the AHA and Sports Medicine report.

That is the pattern. When you use extra calories one day, you are hungry the next day, not the same day.

My rest days are not equally spaced out, so that wouldn't be a correct statement.

Nimm, I think you slightly understood, I'm talking about those fitness gurus who want to sell you their workout collection, have you pound your body/massive exercise with not addressing eating habits as well as those that sell their meal plans, shakes, magic pills, etc., are who I'm talking about.

They're scared if they tell everyone to go workout for 1.5hrs every day, no one will even try.

Whats the alternative? Anything is better than nothing.



Dr. Steven Phinney has discussed numerous studies that show exercising excessively, defined as 1-2 hours every day, causes the resting metabolic rates to decrease thereby slowing down your weight loss. You can listen to him discussing these studies here, it's around the 11 or 12 minute mark.

Re-read what I wrote. Dr. Phinney says the definition of excessive exercise was 1-2 hours a day everyday. You mentioned 1.5 hours a day of exercise every day 1.5 hours x 7 fits within the range that Phinney defines as excessive in the podcast. If you listen to the segment I linked to he discusses the studies that show that amount of exercise can actually decrease the resting metabolic rate.

You brought up too little exercise so broaching the topic of too much exercise is reasonable.

That is how I read onedaat's post but I am familiar with the podcast she referred to.

If you get a chance to listen to the segment I'd be curious to hear your opinion.
