Any form of exercise burns calories, so if one does not eat or drink more calories than he is using during his exercise, then his body will burn up fat as fuel.

You could: Hopefully you're eating more than 700 calories a week? And even more than 1800 calories a week? If not, i hope you haven't discontinued psychotherapy, and that you're working with a nutritionist. It sounds like you're still very concerned about gaining weight, and may need more assistance as you transition into healthier eating and living. Be well. ...Read more
