I have been reading both on here and elsewhere that exercising does not aid weight loss and I am not sure I agree and I wonder what your own experiences are.
Surely if you need say 1500 calories a day and you eat those calories and also work off 500 calories you will lose weight - yes/no?
This week I have done a lot of exercise but eaten much more than I have been for the last couple of months. I gained 1/4 lb. I can't believe that if I didn't do all that exercise I wouldn't have gained more.
Ok, I can see that if you eat those 500 calories you have burnt off (especially if you are eating junk) you aren't going to lose weight but if you burn more calories than you need isn't it simple maths and therefore you lose weight?
I think that it is unhelpful saying exercise doesn't aid weight loss as many people like to combine cutting down and exercising - it certainly seems to be working for many people on this site.
I would love to hear about other people's experiences and their view on this
