More Exercise = More Weight Loss?

By Albert | March 18, 2015

Calories in versus calories out. That’s all you need to worry about if you want to lose weight, right? We all got overweight from exercising too little, so the only way out of this is to exercise…

    I have been stuffing my Vitamix full of leafy greens and just putting some
    fruit on top, more for flavor. I will drink this large smoothie all day. At
    night I eat a cooked meal of whole vegetables, and beans, or rice, or
    whatever I got till I’m full . This has allowed me to loose about 25 lbs in
    about 3 months. But about 3 weeks ago I started feeling tired and cranky in
    the afternoons. I need to loose about 10 more pounds before I’m at a health
    weight. How when why should I my increase calories? I know I should
    increase now but I really want to loose this weight first then increase.
    Thoughts and suggestions please. ?

    I have noticed I don’t lose weight unless I’m exercising several days a
    week. I don’t think it has to do with calories burned though, I think it
    has more to do with my body functioning more efficiently and enabling it to
    deal with the fat in a way that it can’t if I’m sedentary.?

    It;s not about how MUCH you exercise it’s about the way you exercise. I
    have found that if I vary the time and intensity I get better results.?

    Stress levels and sleep are too often overlooked in this community.
    Everyone is too fucking focused on either diet purity or exercise obsession.
    I say go to bed earlier, take a nap if you need, and laugh more.?

    Instead of seeing an Outback Steakhouse ad before Durianriders video I saw
    a Happy Healthy Vegan ad. First time I have ever watched an entire ad. When
    did you guys start supporting DR??

    Ryan – I generally agree with you…but using increased exercise to burn an
    extra (approx) 1500 calories per week for 5 weeks = 7500 calories (it takes
    3500 calories to make 1 pound – so that’s ONLY 2 pounds over 5 weeks).
    Your method of showing that you were eating the same is also a little
    “ify” (my smoothies were the same size and Anji was making about the same
    amount of food…so therefore what I ate probably didn’t change?? ) An
    extra banana and a couple of dates per day, or slightly larger helpings of
    rice would easily balance out your increased amounts of exercise. I can
    pretty much guarantee…that if you burn an extra 200 calories per day
    (through exercise) for 6 months (182 days) = 36,400 calories – then there
    should be a significant difference in your weight ( 36,400 divided by 3500
    = 10.4 pounds ) – as compared to if you had not been burning those
    additional calories.?

    There are people who are under the impression that weight is most
    important, and it’s not.

    It can take time for the body to heal. I focus on eating high raw vegan,
    exercise, and leave weight loss to Time.?

    I’m in a similar situation as you. I am 5’11 and have never been able to go
    below 143 lbs no matter how much exercise I do. Maybe people have an ideal
    weight that they’re going to plateau at, no matter how much exercise they
    do, as long as they’re eating enough of the right food. ?

    Totally agree with you! I eat the same everyday and there are weeks where
    I’m working out more but my weight stays the same. I’m not calorie
    restricting and fill up on veggies and fruits all day long. ?
