Although I am writing a detailed post on the blog about this, I just want to put some facts in front of the people who really want to lose weight and are making a wrong choice of doing it with calories burned. There is a disclaimer I want to mention that don't take in any way that I am against the exercise. Regular exercise is essential for healthy living and in no way any excuse can be made of being lazy about the normal and routine exercise of your daily life. For best to understand, as to why exercise will not be helpful in losing weight, I will refer the readers to my post. I will put a link here, once I have finished writing that. The whole physiological process of metabolism and the role exercise will play in that. That will be out of scope for this topic. Suffice here is to say that exercise will always make you feel more hungry. This is a type of hunger that you cannot resist, or in other words, you will harm yourself, if you don't eat afterward. Measuring calories is always a dilemma no one is ever able to resolve. How much should I eat, how much I have burnt etc. Exercise will deplete your skeletal muscle cells off all the reserves in addition to using much of the calories required for other work, internal or external. Skeletal muscles are very efficient tissue. They require a lot of energy for contraction they make which will lead to mechanical work. When they are depleted of their reserve nutritions quickly, as it happens with the exercise, they will learn to adapt and try to overfill the reserve, in case. This is called post-exercise debt. Similarly, as the skeletal muscles work they ask for more and more energy from the storehouses for energy, e.g. fats, etc. When they are being asked too much, they will not only stop complying but also want to store more rather than to give. You go on doing exercise just for weight loss and you will end up with a slow gain and fed up with your futile efforts to do so. I don't know how much of you are thinking of actually trying to lose weight by moderate exercising rather than to decrease consumption and training your body to want less as it needs less. Questions and opinions??? I will wait!
