Yes, but if it were true, it would apply to everyone, so a bodybuilder trying to cut body fat for a show and maintain their muscle would use this principle and find it to be true. Same with a long distance runner.
And burning 2000 calories a day in exercise, while it may not be running, would be comparable to a long distance runner.

Era - I don't want to debate, it is obvious how this thread will go. I shouldn't have posted in the first place. Just came back to clarify that point.

And by the way,once i did manage to burn around 6000 calories in a week..(once in the morning and then again in the evening so it would be more effective!) but nah...lost the same amount i had been losing the previous weeks


"I’d note before moving on that some studies using fairly large amounts of activity (one that comes to mind had subjects cycle 2 hours/day 6 days/week) have shown a greater impact on weight and fat losses. But these amounts of activities are usually considered to be fairly unrealistic for most people."



it wasn't the same because of water flux


yea i never said it couldnt be done..it is possible as lyle says but u got to work really really hard! good luck!

body builders can't cut that much because they are at a low body fat percentage.

Losing 3lbs a week is doable if you have a lot to lose, you don't need to burn 2000 calories a day to do it, just have a lot of fat :P

I am not talking about HOW much you cut, I am talking about the basic idea that if your deficit comes from exercise, you don't lose muscle.

And I am a total sucker.

what did you do in the past to burn 2000kcal a day? usually only pro athletes burn that much. mma/boxers/swimmers/


ran 6-9 miles in morning (800-1200 calories)

ran 4 miles, then walked 4 miles, or walked 8 miles (700-1000 calories roughly)

Your body (especially your knees) will eventually give out if you do that for too long.

maybe i wasn't clear in my question, but i intend to do this for a week or 2, then drop to 2 pounds a week. i was looking for someone that may have done this in the past, and someones experience.

I still think it will be a lot for your body unless you're used to that kind of regimen.

I think it all depends on your current weight, I did that plenty of times while I was trying to lose the weight, and some weeks I would lose 4lbs, some I would still lose the 2. But I also had/have a lot of fat, so my body still had something to burn, I was eating an average of 2000 calories a day, but burning a total of any where between 3500 -4600 a day depending if I worked out or not. Also long distance runners do a lot more running than that, but the usually don't cut that many calories, and usually do a lot of stretching, icing, and elevating after.
