Choose healthy foods and eat more or less of them as you need it. I haven’t counted a calorie in years.
I do agree, the goal of weight training is not to burn calories. But it does use calories. Added to that I do a lot of cardio. I need to know peoples thoughts on whether you would take in to consideration all the calories burnt via exercise and re add those burnt calories to your total calorie intake limit…
Re not counting calories… If you are a seasoned body builder and have a good routine worked out for what and when and which foods to eat then that may make sense! But for some one like me who has never counted calories and has been fat their whole life it doesn’t make sense.
If I don’t count calories, I’ll just stay fat. I don’t do a lot of running but I do a lot of cardio to help stay fit… I need cardio to get fit for boxing… Cutting out cardio is not an option.
As for running makes people fat, that does seem a very bizzare statement to make… From my experience, the more cardio I do the more calories I burn the more weight I lose… I am just going to give that link a read but I must admit Im shaking my head a little at your comments.
