[elky] Re: CAGS was Re: Re: (no subject)

According to that my BMI is 20.7.

Weight loss, weight gain or maintaining weight is simple accounting:
calories in minus calories out.  You can be thin if you eat a lot but
exercise a lot to compensate... but then you can have heart issues
from the fatty foods... there's always a reckoning.

That said I believe some people are genetically predetermined to store
fat more readily than others.  One of the "Biggest Loser" past
contestants said the only way she can keep the weight off is to do
strenuous exercise for an hour 6 days a week... I'm lucky if I get one
day in.

The "strenuous" part brings me to another myth: people think they can
do low intensity, long duration sessions on the treadmill and lose
weight... the fact is you're not burning many calories when you do low
intensity... the only gain I see is increasing your endurance (which
is not the goal).

Watch the workouts they do on the Biggest Loser... nothing low
intensity about it!
