    Except that they are not good tips.
    They are good ways of getting fit - not losing weight.

    Increasing exercise also increases appetite. The body usually manages to hold onto its weight.
    There are two exceptions.
    1. If the person is seriously over-weight or obese to start with.
    2. The amount of exercise is excessive. By which I mean, more than two hours of strenuous stuff per day.

    A normal level of exercise for a person who is just overweight will not normally result in weight loss. However, it is still worth doing, since some of that weight is fat that turns to muscle, making the person look a bit better. And also because greater fitness means greater health.

    But for most of us, increasing exercise is not a route to weight loss.

    This has to be one of the silliest things I've read in some time - I'm assuming this was said in earnest and isn't some form of subtle trolling of the OP?

    Excessive exercise will reduce muscle mass and promote hardening/scarring in the heart muscle.

    You're looking for mixed method cardio sessions with a HR between 130-150 for 30-40 minutes at least 4 times a week.

    A regular exercise regimen coupled with a calorie controlled diet will see ANYBODY shed excess weight within 6 months and be within striking distance of their goal in under a year. No magical exclusions.

    To the rusty one.

    Yes, a calory controlled diet works.
    Exercise alone does not. Our bodies adapt to increased exercise, and we eat more. End result, no weight loss, though a good increase in health and fitness. If you add a diet to the exercise, you have a different situation.

    Why would you want to reduce weight lose (sic) ?

    I thought the idea was to lose weight?

    So, if I follow your reasoning, there is no distinct difference between the two states of regular exercise and no exercise at all because our bodies will simply circumvent all the benefits by holding us down and cramming additional buckets of junk food down our gullets or osmosis?

    I believe that skeptic was correctly addressing a common misconception. Lots of people who decide to lose weight think that the way to go about it is to go to the gym and start working out (neglecting the need to also control their food intake). The have an exaggerated idea of how many calories they will burn with some moderate amount of exercise. Often, they think they can get away with having an extra treat, having burned off a lot of calories during their workout.

    Thank you Harold. That is an accurate summation.

    Don't think that I am discouraging exercise. I exercise regularly myself, and I encourage others to do so also. Just that it is not a good way to lose weight. It is an excellent way to improve health and fitness, though, and we should all do it.

    Also, metabolic demand of muscle tissue is greater than that of fat. Higher metabolic rate = increased calorie consumption. Most fat people, if not all, are actually malnourished technically.

    This reminds me that cardio exercise will not help you build muscle mass. For that, you need resistance exercise. But don't expect to build muscle while you are dieting. While dieting, you are lifting weights just to keep the muscles you already have.

    Hi dear,

    Cardio exercises are very effective tools for fitness and weight losing.
    We must do the cardio exercises for a regular period to get better results.
    The best cardio exercises are running, jogging, swimming, and cycling.

    I'll keep this short only because I haven't had enough time to read all the other posts, ask if you want me to explain what I am about to write.

    To reduce fat, you need anaerobic exercises, I've competed at many sports, and aerobic exercise burns too much muscle and makes the body crave calories.

    The human body was never built to do cardio for hours on end, we were built to "get out of trouble" quickly, or to make a weapon to hunt our prey.

    Actually, the human body is well adapted to do cardio for hours on end. This is how we are able to do persistence hunting.

    Exercise alone worked until I was about 40 to control my body weight. It simply came to down calories. If I ran an extra ten miles a week (really easy when I was 30) I'd loose several pounds a month. Often I'd just set it around a goal, like the Army ten miler, or a half marathon and fold it into my training for the event.

    Since than though, I can't just pour on more miles not due to it not working, but simply because I can't get used to the increase without hurting myself. For a while I'd just cut something out like fried food, or bread, in addition to slow increases in exercise. It worked for a while but made me kinda crazy. Now I count calories, eat more fruit and vegetables, track my exercise (something I've done pretty regularly for almost 20 years) and no longer rely on running--I mix in elliptical time (when its dark and rainy), bicycling and long weekend hikes.

    Most of the effective techniques include a mix of exercise and diet to loose weight.

    Army 10 miler? I ran that race once ~2000.

    Cardio is fine especially mixing it up with more than one kind. However, I think that strength exercise, and stretching, help with weight loss more (at least for me) than cardio.

    I think stretching helps release stress, and prevents stress eating. Strength training builds muscle that increases your calorie usage.

    I like Yoga for stretching and bands for strength.

    It's true cardio exercises have excellent results for the weight loss and fitness enhancement.
    If you daily spend 30 minutes in your outdoor cardio exercises you can get an ideal body weight and fitness level.
