Gee, you, yourself stated above it is more than reducing caloric intake to lose weight.

Go peddle your crap else where.

Who needs to run 35 miles to lose one pound? Lance Armstrong? or Honey Boo Boo's mom? How fast are they running? What heart rate? Running up hill? Down Hill? Flat?

Me, 169 lbs, about 8:30 miles at a heart rate of about 150 bpm, mostly flat though if you run a circuiit it will even out. From an online calculator it comes out to 3,541.

I generally use 100 cal/mile as a rule of thumb, normally good enough to illustrate the point.

So you are in decent shape to start with, unless you are 4' tall or something. Someone overweight will shed a lot of pounds with good cardio (minimum 45 minutes at a time) mixed with a good intake of foods. To put out a blanket statement that running 35 miles will lose a pound is a bit misleading.

Oh, but swjohnsey said you ONLY need to reduce your caloric intake by 3500 (calories) to loss a pound.

I said if you reduce your caloric intake by 3,500 calories you will lose one pound or you can keep your caloric intake constant and run (about) 35 miles and lose one pound or you can reduce your caloric intake by 3,500 calories and run 35 miles and lose two pounds or.

Admin Edit: Don't be condescending.

And I said you need to educate yourself because that statement is not true. Saying it again doesnt make it true, it makes you look stupid. There are several factors that play important roles in how our body burns calories. Some people's bodies burn through calories like their nothing & some people bodies use fuel very efficiently. People who have bodies that require less fuel to maintain will be at an advantage after TSHTF.

If a severely overweight man runs 35 miles I promise he will burn more calories and lose more weight than a fit man...while I do agree calorie intake should be the number one concern of someone trying to lose weight it is definitely not the only thing especially with individuals with medical conditions

Shoot, when I first start exercising I can walk two miles & lose a pound. I get nothing with diet alone.
