What is the One Exercise that Really Seems to Help Weight Loss?



Running! People who run often have slender figures and can maintain those great figures with their running. I have seen this time and again. Kent Altena is one of those people. Sugarless4life is another (she is on lowcarbfriends.com). I cannot be a runner. I am too top heavy for that and my knees would not take it either. I used to do a lot of ballet and unfortunately my knees can be a bit iffy sometimes, so I'm careful with certain exercises.

My eldest son is another example of a runner. He says he probably burns around 800 calories with his running in a day and would be hard pressed to eat that much extra over and above his allotted calorie allowance which is high to begin with as he is 6 foot tall. Anyway truth is Daniel is skinny and running helps him stay that way he says.

So there you have it. Significant running does certainly help many people lose weight and keep it off.

I discovered running after my third was born and I love it!

I know - that explains your lovely figure, Carolyn. :) Thanks for commenting.

I have started power walking training, and now do 1/2 marathons.
This has been great for my weight , and my friend/walking buddy has had huge weight loss success for the first time in years.

Power walking is probably better than running - less wear and tear on the hips, joints and feet, etc.
