And there is the basic foundation for why CI/CO and exercise is a failed method for weight loss. You start calculating how your activity impacts your eating. Then you eat more. Or, your exercise creates hunger (which is the normal physiologic response), and you eat more.
Exercise is a great toner; a great mood-lifter. But current research leans toward it not being the magic bullet we're given to believe.
I'm disabled. I can't exercise AT ALL. Just the activities of normal life are nearly out of my abilities (I pretty much live in a powerchair). And yet, I've lost the equivalent of a fairly large person from my frame. I'm still trickling downward, mostly. In my case, that research bears out completely. Exercise means nothing for weight loss - at least not in my experience.
Besides... if that worked, seeing how many people are slashing calories, eliminating fat, and exercising hours per week (or day!)... don't you suppose we'd see a lot more lean folks out there? Do YOU see that? I sure don't. The people I see in public places are getting bigger and bigger, and we're all suffering with more health issues than ever before.
How long will it take before we open our eyes to the evidence?
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
