An apple is approximately 50 calories per 100 grams. Running will burn approximately 60 calories per kilometre. When I was fasting, i discovered that simply not eating was even more effective than exercising for loosing weight. As when i exercised I then got hungrier and ate all my calories burned, back on. Later I discovered optimising the balance between quality foods and quality exercise.
If I train for 1 hour per day, how much restraint about eating do i need for the other 23 hours of that day?
What truly naffed me off was when i played squash for an hour, burning 600 calories, and then socialised with mates, drinking bourbon and coke and having a pizza – and discovered that the socialising facilitated me consuming 1500 calories after squash! Man that annoyed me greatly.
Covid hit the world and my squash socialising ceased – and that itself helped me loose 25 kilograms in 12 months, without even exercising at all. I discovered I respected whole foods, and disrespected easy junk food and enjoyable alcohols.
These days I train in about 15 to 30 minute sessions nice and easy twice a day, just ticking over, and grow my own vegetables in the garden. My pumpkins have weighed over 2 kilograms, and I occasionally use one as a weight, then eat it! I’ve come down from 146 kilograms to 102 kg in about two years… still got 14 kilograms to loose though, so I gotta stay on the wagon. I hope my story helps you out a bit mate, good management is better than good luck!
In Australia if the “food” has a nutritional label it very probably is not nutritious!
