2013 - Regained weight due to lack of discipline, exercise, and calorie counting.

A fun thread. What are you reading?
Not laughing, but wincing, wish i were reading something else - currently being knocked about with Elementary Statistics, The Cartoon Guide to Statistics, and R for Everyone.

i agree ... diet is the key. figuring out what works for each of us is also key. one size certainly doesn't fit all. i do prefer to add in exercise and weights though, it offers more buffer, though not as much as we think, to eat a little more. some would argue it's all diet. i would say 70/30 is a fair mindset. certainly, to see one's abdominal muscles, diet will play in more than any ab exercise.

Exercise - more beneficial closer together?
Oh --- i understand what you are saying now --- the fact that you do a run 2x daily, closer together or further apart in the day is awesome - and is beneficial - if anything, i would work to extend those 20 minute workouts by 5 - 10 minutes each to up your endurance. What it may be helping with is your cardio vascular health to do them closer together, the break is not as long and you are pushing yourself harder.

@ebivr - i had never heard that before, that walking a mile burns the same calories as running/jogging a mile? if i walk 3 miles at 2.5/3 mph i expend less calories than if i ran it at 6 mph. the effort out (i.e. longer, harder, faster) always equates to higher calories burned, no? i do know that if i run, i am breathing harder, sweating more, and muscles are pushed harder than if i would walk. all that requires more calories in my mind - and hopefully in my body.

(EDIT) found some research:
Table A: Calories Burned Per 1-Mile Walk vs 1-Mile Run For A 156-lb Subject

CALS/MILE 88.9 112.5
CALS/MINUTE 4.78 11.25
NEW TOTAL/MILE 110.6 158.6
CALS/MINUTE 5.95 15.86
* one mile walk in 18:36; ** one mile run in 10:00
