According to my Fitbit, a one-hour walk is around 400 calories burned and a one-hour run at a moderate pace is around 700. Not as much of a difference as one might think.


Interesting. Online calculators put one hour of walking at 325 calories and biking at 750 cal per hour. Running is about 125 cal per mile.

I've lost 10 pounds in 12 weeks. I don't fast. A slow go, but working on it.

Unless you run a LOT.

Running will replace fat with muscle mass. However, ten years ago I increased my mileage and lost quite bit, but also resulting in Achilles issues that put me on the shelf for a year.

I've run over 10,000 miles in the last 10 years, I weigh 10 lbs more than I did 10 years ago. But on the plus side, I've have a lot of good food and beer in the last decade. [laughing]

That sounds like a lot of running, but it shakes out to 3 miles a day. Don't get me wrong, way more than I've done. But if we're talkjng strictly weight loss, it's not just miles. Its running at fast pace for an hour or more.

The last couple posts are a bummer for a guy trying to lose weight by eating less, doing moderate exercise and walking the dog longer to read.

My main point was to say that running (or any other type of cardio exercise) by itself isn’t going to do anything for losing weight unless you do it a LOT. In my experience 40+ miles/week was where my weight would drop unless I purposely ate extra calories. But I was never able to keep up that kind of mileage without getting injured. Better to run slow which is easier and less injury risk. Or just walk.

How often were you guys fasting when you were doing it?

I've been doing 21 hours every third day, but last night was reading that daily was recommended and that daily would better curb hunger pangs. Plus if daily is best, skipping breakfast and lunch every day seems a bit....extreme to the point of unreasonable. I could do skipping breakfast, but since they say a small protein to break the fast and a normal meal an hour later, I don't know how I would work that in with an hour lunchbreak.

Cocktails and the occasional small ice cream are still killing my losses. Right now I'm lifting weights and enjoying that, but there's a mountain bike trail next door and I'm getting tempted to switch to that to really push the fat-loss mode, and then only once it's off go back to lifting as more of a bulking phase. Mountain biking would be 800-1000 calories burned vs. about 200 for weightlifting, so that's an almost surefire calorie deficit to switch. Being somewhat skinny-fat I want to stick to weightlifting, but then I wonder if I'm aiming for a calorie deficit but lifting weights, then that means I'm not really gaining size/muscle and therefore I'm almost working against myself.

my update.

I have now lost a total of 18 lbs. Down to 177. Probably haven't been this weight in 15 years.

I don't intend to go past 175. As it is now, I'm going to have to start some kind of weight program or massive push-ups because my shoulders and chest are now looking too thin for my liking. The struggle is real! lol Still enjoying the loss of belly mass though!

I've read that there is no direct correlation between amount of exercise and weight loss. It sounds counterintuitive but it makes sense based on personal experience. When I am in a groove working out I am always eating because I'm always hungry. So I'm just replacing the calories I burned with more calories. Exercising alone won't do it - you need to change up your diet too.

You're not wrong so I hope I'm not sounding defensive. My thought was that the calculator says mountain biking for 70 minutes is -1000 calories, so we'll say -800 to be fair. And the calculator says -400 for weightlifting. So I'm thinking just that -400 difference every day assuming an equal diet could well represent the difference between maintaining and loss.

But yeah I've got to be more dedicated to carrot sticks and cutting back.


Well done TurboRicky! That's a really impressive loss.

Hey is this going to continue to be a IF/Weight Loss support thread? I need one of these. I have done calorie tracking and IF before, and it works...but I always fall into my bad habits. I will weigh in, in the morning, as I have already eaten this morning.

Weakness: Dinner dates with my wife; and delicious high calorie beers.

I weighed in on Monday I think, and I think I was 274? Would like to start adding a 1 hour walk in the morning as well. My basement went from just a treadmill to a bonafide gym when corona hit, as I have added many, many things over the past 6 months, mostly for my teenage son, but I will have no excuses going forward. I will keep checking in. Looking forward to taking some lbs off.

Looking forward to this.

I fell of the wagon of the diet/exercise recently. Need to jump back on in a hurry.

Good stories all, hope it keeps up. I hit about 30 down since shutdown and am sitting around 25 now after some activities the last few weeks hurt. With no end in sight to this I plan on going more and getting close to the glory days numbers.

For me, I agree with some who've posted about how heavily working out ends up not helping as much as you'd think because it makes me hungry. Since shutdown having way more free time has allowed for easier workouts like leisurely walk/jobs or shooting hoops as opposed to normal life where you tried to cram a bunch in a short period time, which would just make me hungry and eat it all back. I've had more success with just light so you don't get the need to eat so much. But of course everyone is different.

2nd weekly fast was Tuesday, even easier than the first time. GAME's tip about having some salt for headache was a great call, I just had a few little pinches of salt throughout the day and that took care of it. For me the once a week fast is something I can do really easily so I like it. I'm going to call it Fast Tuesday.
As far as results go, it seems to be working well. I'd been eating fairly healthy and getting regular moderate exercise, and I walk about 3.5 miles per day according to my phone. Weight had been at a standstill, now after 2 24 hour fasts, I'm down 4.5 lbs. There definitely does seem to be some truth to what I'd read about how it promotes fat burning and HGH production when you fast.

I’ve lost 29 pounds in the last five weeks - with intermittent fasting and diet change.

No, I am not doing keto - I eat all of my calories in an 8-10 hour window each day, and I pay close attention to everything I eat.

I weighed in and started a fasting routine on 9/25, so what was that....Friday? I will give you my first weekly update this Friday. I am using the Fastic app, which was suggested by someone in this thread, and I am finding that it is helping keep me accountable and motivated.

So far my fasting has been as follows:

Day 1: 17 hour fast
Day 2: 18 hour fast
Day 3: 17 hour fast
Day 4: 18 hour fast
Day 5: 17 hour fast

Two more days to go and will give an update on my week 1 progress on Friday.

Recently made it to 36 lost since May. Have had some higher-carb meals lately, so have plateaued a little bit. First goal is 6 more lbs.

Final goal is to lose another 25 after that. That puts me at my wedding weight which was 29 years ago LOL.

Lots of stress lately, so that hasn't helped. Need to go balls to the wall for a few weeks. Physical coming up next Friday, so we will see what the Doctor has to say.

I’m still at it, down 37 lbs since June 20th. I’m at about a 19:5 fast lately. And walking 3 miles a day. I get full pretty quickly and don’t really have any cravings. I might be eating too many carbs but I’ve generally been around 2000 calories or less a day. Besides the weight loss, with the fasting and drinking less alcohol my quality of sleep is 100 times better too.

18 years ago I weighed over 500 pounds. I am down to 237. Hope to drop another 30 pounds. Lost all that by mostly not eating or drinking as much. I did cut out fast food entirely. Having both my hips replaced did allow for a better exercise routine.

Well I finished my first week if intermittent fasting. Here are the results.

Starting Weight: 275
Fasting times of 17+ hours for past 6 days, and I am currently in my 7th fast, but at late last night so have to go until at least 2pm today. I dont anticipate that being a problem.

Each day it got easier to continue my fast. I definitely noticed I wasnt snacking or mindlessly eating after 6pm, which is when I ended my eating phase each day. Last night my wife and I went out as we normally do once a week. We shared an app and a cheese board. I had two pints of beer.

Weight this morning: 275.4

So it did not do much for me. I will continue to see if I can get this strategy to take some pounds off.

Starting Weight 275
Goal Weight 200
Week 1 weight loss/gain +0.4
Pounds to go: 75.4
