Calories every day and exercising 4 times a week (burning 400 - 450 calories). Will i maintain weight?

You need enough: Calories to maintain your metabolic rate. Calculate your weight in pounds and multiply by 10 to determine your baseline. Then add the activity amount of calorie burning each day, 10% for minimal activity and more for vigorous activity (at least 30%). It appears you are able to determine your activity caloric burning so add that amount to your baseline on those days. Adjust based on loss/gain. ...Read more

I eat 1700 calories a day, run 4 miles everyday, do insanity workouts and weight lift, why can't i lose weight? Should i eat more to lose more?

Start w/ exam: Start w/ a GP exam targeted at your concern. You have not even mentioned your BMI or history around weight issues. Those will matter. Take this step-by-step and you'll find answers much better than eating 'more'. It may involve eating more of certain things - calories alone are not always the best way to measure intake. Best! ...Read more

Can running 2 miles twice a day help me lose weight!?

Can running 2 miles twice a day help me lose weight!?

It will help a lot: A combo of aerobic (cardiovascular) +weight bearing (build muscles) exercises along with proper/balanced diet is probably the best, but some is better than nothing. 4 miles/day=awesome. Minimize sodas, juices, pizza, donuts, brownies, cookies, truffles, ice cream, lattes, beers/liquor, and the evil of chips... So, be sensible. Keep on running and stay healthy. Don't forget to sleep well. Good luck. ...Read more

Would biking at 5.9 miles per hour on a 2.0 incline be enough to maintain weight loss?

Would biking at 5.9 miles per hour on a 2.0 incline be enough to maintain weight loss?

How long: The intensity of exercise certainly seems sufficient to maintain weight loss. Not sure about how long you are doing. Generally, i recommend at least 150 minutes a week of moderately vigorous exercise. Because everyone varies, i suggest that the intensity of exercise be high enough that people feel breathless enough that they cannot carry on a conversation, and that they perspire. ...Read more

Can you help? Could running 1 mile (100 calories) per day be a productive way to lose weight?

Can you help? Could running 1 mile (100 calories) per day be a productive way to lose weight?

Depends: Losing weight usually requires making changes in what and how much you eat. Being active helps, but burning an extra 100 calories/day probably won't make much difference. Though, it might prevent you from gaining more weight. If you're not used to exercising, start small with the idea that you'll gradually increase the intensity or duration of the activity. It's a good habit to get into. ...Read more

Is eating 923 calories a day if I'm 130 lbs and 5'5 safe to lose weight?

Is eating 923 calories a day if I'm 130 lbs and 5'5 safe to lose weight?

Not the best: without an exam, I can only give general information, and while I can say that you are not fat, I cannot say if you are thin (depends on how much muscle). Your amount of fat at 130lb, 55 is healthy. A significant loss (20 pounds) is UNhealthy. Cutting calories by itself loses muscle mass, promotes a starvation response (lowr metabolism; harder to lose weight), and lowers nutrients/vitamins. ...Read more

Is running good to lose weight for atleast 20 min everyday?

Is running good to lose weight for atleast 20 min everyday?

Long distance: Jogging, while not recommended by many because of the potential orthopedic problems, is possibly one of the best methods of losing fat. Low resistance, high repeititon, and long duration large muscle use burns calories while not bulking muscle. Twenty minutes may not be long enough to get to "fat burning" and if you use this method it should be at least 40-60 min 3x/week. ...Read more
