    Losing weight isn't all that hard. If you put in 30 minutes of running everyday, anyone can drop a few pounds a week. Running a mile may just burn 300 calories in that time, but it keeps the metabolism high all day thus burning maybe 500 more calories a day than if you sat on the couch or behind the computer.

    Yep, or swimming. I'm on a routine now of lifting 3 times a week, and swimming laps the days I don't lift. I'm not a runner, but for people who want to lose weight it's a good way to do it-and it's FREE!

    I read somewhere it's harder for women to lose weight than men. :mad:


    But I do love to execise, it clears my head and gets out my frustrations of the day!

    :doubt: This means I can eat over 9 Big Mac's and only gain one pound? I think I better add fries and a milkshake to my order. :eusa_eh: :lol:

    That's what I'm all about. Fuck workout videos, aerobic classes, tae-bo, 8minute abs, ect... Maybe I should make a video called 30 minute gut buster, and video tape myself running through the streets of charleston for 30 minutes. I'd probably make a million bucks cause people are gullible like that.

    People will pay for anything that they think will help them lose weight.

    haha, that's great!

    I'm actually now starting to put more thought into it. I could create a montage of myself running and air punching, score it with Rage against the machine, and sell it on blue-ray. :badgrin:

    I ride my bike four miles a day, walk with a hiking group twice a week, and I have reduced my sugar intake. I am almost 50, so I still get much under 200.

    How much does lifting 4 large cups of coffee per day burn?
