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

If I do about 2-2 1/2 hours running each day plus an hr or two at the gym will I lose weight?

If I do about 2-2 1/2 hours running each day plus an hr or two at the gym will I lose weight?

Very likely ...: ... but it also depends on what you eat. Some people say, "I work out so I can eat anything!", but that isn't really true or healthy. And how could you possibly have time to spend 3.5 to 4.5 hours a day working out and running unless you are a professional athlete and that is your job!? That much exercise could easily result in injury or overuse problems. Eat sensibly and work out an hour a day:) ...Read more

I have been eating one meal a day for about 8 months and running daily. How can I increase how much eat while continue to lose weight?

I have been eating one meal a day for about 8 months and running daily. How can I increase how much eat while continue to lose weight?

Eating 3, or even 5 small meals a day is much better believe it or not. You can have 4 small meals/snacks throughout the day and have a high protein & vegetable meal at the end of the day. The frequent meals tends to speed up your metabolism (just don't over eat). Keep up the exercise! ...Read more

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

How to lose weight 16 kg in 4-5 months?  I do regular exercise and running..Please also tell me about diet. Which should be taken in a day?

When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more
