comment Is it true that Diet is far more effective than Exercise for fat loss?
Thanks for the Livestrong link. It's important to me to see actual numbers. Also it's not so much about how many calories you can eat in an hour (I can eat a LOT!), but in fact the opposite: if your daily calorie intake goes from say 2000 down to 1000 as part of a short term diet, I don't think any exercise can match that kind of calorie "burn" in one day (even more so if sustained for 10 days or more). So in fact, in terms of effectiveness I'm tempted to think "focus on the diet, the exercise can come later for maintenance".

Everything you say here makes a lot of sense, but what the numbers posted by Lyle McDonald where he shows that the calories burned by exercising are much less than what you can achieve by a discplined approach to dieting? bodyrecomposition.com/fat-loss/…

Follow up link to my last comment where he shows some numbers about calories burned during exercise (and of course the less fit you are, the less calories you burn when exercising) bodyrecomposition.com/fat-loss/…

Losing fat is all about the diet. When it comes to losing fat, exercise has relatively a much smaller part to play than dieting. I would almost go so far as to say: get your diet sorted first, then start thinking about exercise. I wish someone had told me this years ago!
