The idea that the point of exercise is to lose weight seems weird. The benefits of exercise are many and various. In fact, exercise is essential.

The Hadza burned the same number of calories as westerners even though they were far more physically active. Overeating will make you gain weight but cutting calories alone won’t necessarily make you lose weight because the body is an adaption machine and because just focusing on calories doesn’t account for hormones. There’s also no significant difference in metabolic rate between slim people and people who aren’t. It’s mostly a matter of genetics why some people are slim and some people are overweight even though they’re pretty much eating the same number of calories and living a very similar lifestyle. The Hadza are slim because of 1) genetics and 2) what they eat. Processed foods and constantly spiking our insulin are a huge part of why there’s so much obesity in the US.

Yeah if I go to the gym and workout my legs and squat 315 for 5 sets of 8 reps that slice of pizza just subtracts everything I did. Makes sense some people go to get muscle not only lose weight. Idk f that doctor haha

Food companies are fooling the masses into thinking that exercise can make them lose weight even if they eat unhealthy sugary/fatty foods. 🤣🤦

This is completely true. I have been fasting for 24hrs to sometimes 48hrs. No exercise at all. Lost 45 lbs in 3 months. BTW I didnt really notice any muscle loss.

Dont listen to fox brothers, they want you to be weak and flabby. Be strong and not flabby. Lift weights, it's good for you and it feels great

The goal of exercise isn't weight loss at all. Its to increase endurance, strength, speed, flexibility, mobility. Overall making your body function and move more efficiently. Only controlling your DIET will = weight loss.

*A combination of eating healthy and exercising is THE best approach. Exercise not only burns calories, but it relieves stress. And stress is the reason many people over eat. Let exercise be your stress reliever. Not food.* 💗💗💗

Shifah Shipher

Shifah Shipher . 1 month ago

If you want to lose weight don't focus on that fact, eat all the food that is not forbidden by God and make exercising your daily routine plus don't over do it 'the eating part' you could eat just not to starve, and that will not just be easier but it will do it, with the will of God.

This makes a lot of sense because as a quadriplegic, I can’t really do a lot of exercise, but I’m still at a very slim and healthy weight because of what I eat.

All you need is a calorie deficit and atleast an HR of workout to loose weight. I've been jogging 3 miles 5x a week and I've already lost weight
