5 Miles A Day On Treadmill
I am thirteen years old and a girl, will I grow five inches? I excercise every day and it includes jumping towards the ceiling and the treadmill.
Doubt it: The average 13 yo will grow another 2 inches before stopping. It doesn't matter how you exercise and jumping does nothing. A girl is expected to reach the height equal to the average of both parents less 2.5inches. If you entered puberty late, you might grow a little more, but most stop by 3 yrs after menses if not sooner. ...Read more

I'm 5'5 wg 173lbs. Do treadmill for 10 min at 2mph 3x a day no incline. And try to watch what I eat. How many lbs can I lose in a wk by doing that?
It's in the numbers!: If you count calories faithfully, and track the amount you exercise for 1 week, then cut your calories by 100 cal a week you will lose 1 pound a week, generally. Cut by 300 calories, 3 lbs a week, with that regimen. If you don't count calories you will never understand how you got overweight, or lose weight when you try. Avoid high protein diets. Have 2 servings a day (low fat,) to spare muscle ...Read more
That is incredible!!: I don't hear that too often these days--doing 2 hours worth of exercise/day at age 68 is awesome. You actually answered your own question. If you are not healthy, you won't be able to do that for 2 hours. I am beaten by nearly 30 yrs and I don't think I can last 2 hrs on the treadmill--hope I can do 1/2 of that at 68. Keep up the good work--i can see u beating 100 yr mark. Good luck. ...Read more
Yes: This would depend on your goals and your initial fitness level, and how vigorously you are using the treadmill. Government guidelines recommend at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity. However, the truth is that with so many of us not exercising, we would applaud your 15 min a day, and encourage you to build on that over time. ...Read more

What are the benefits of running on the treadmill for a mile everyday or every other day? Also is it better to do it everyday or every other?
Yes, Of Course:
Walking or an 30 min will help you burn
up about 100 calories extra, over a month this could be about 1lb. However, if the exercise makes you more hungry or if you use it as a reward to eat more, you will not lose weight at all. 1 extra slice of pizza adds
500 calories, or about 5 miles of walking or
30 min x5 or 150 min on the treadmill!

Will jogging on a treadmill for 30 min a day count as the required per day I buy one for 50 dollars with broken incline on it rest works fine?

I try and walk 5 days a week at least 60 minutes a day on the treadmill at 2.3 mph with no incline is this still considered cardio?
Cardio: Your question is missing any kind of data to make a good answer. The biggest issue is are you getting your heart rate to a level that is 'excercise'...Like at your age you should be at 130 to 140 beats per minute. If you are at this level you are exercising appropriately. If not you are just sauntering and wasting your time. ...Read more
Weight Loss: Yes, if the following are also met. You are limiting your total calories to less than 1800 and that your calories consist mostly of proteins (about 60%). And, when you are walking on the treadmill you are moving fast enough to get your heart rate to about 130 beats per minute for the full 30 minutes every day. ...Read more

Eat between 1000-1200cal a day and drink tons of water, with fast pace treadmill 6days a wk...& I gained 2lbs in a wk! Why?!?!
Please Clarify: This could be that you are eating too many carbohydrate calories or sugars. Or that you are eating so little that you have turned off the metabolism mechanism in your body. Your diet, while low calorie, must contain foods that are mostly protein calories for you to have success at this. You also need to eat or graze throughout the day to keep your metabolism turned on. ...Read more

What is the best foods that burns fat? As im already getting on the treadmill at 3-4speed for 30mins to an hour a day and eating 1200calories
Wrong question!: Sorry to burst your bubble but contrary to popular wish, there are no true fat burning foods, at least none w/repeatable scientific proof. While you're to be commended for exercising regularly, consider what you're doing the rest of your day. Being sedentary the other 23hrs will hamper your efforts. So will drinking anything besides water, black coffee & tea (avoid any liquids w/hidden calories). ...Read more
I'm 42 years old and I am diabetic. I control it by diet. I weigh 176lbs. If I do 50 minutes of treadmill a day, will that help me lose weight?
Probably, but...: 50 minutes of cardiovascular exercise a day is a great start. It will increase your body's use of glucose and increase fitness. However, weight is a function of the number of calories you take in as well as those you burn. If you increase the amount you eat because you work-up an appetite you may not lose weight. A healthy diet is an important part of the process. Remember to talk to your pcp! ...Read more
