I started regular exercising a few months back (after years of being not so active). I have now been regularly spending 1h on the treadmill every other day and started losing weight. I am of course controlling my diet generally speaking eating oatmeal and milk, lean meat, fruit and as fat only olive oil and eating almost zero sugars (I think oatmeal and bananas help keep refined sugar away).
The thing is that sometimes, although I am not really strict (eating too much parmesan or too much white bread) on my eating habits I still lose weight.
What's the logic at work here? My body was almost asleep and now that my basic metabolism has started I am forgiven for some little mistakes?
