A client heard that 3500 kcals equals one pound. She knows that she is burning 3500 kcals/week during exercise. It says so on the machines she uses. Why am is she not losing a pound every week?

  • Exercise Science -

    How many calories is she taking in??

  • Exercise Science -

    it doesnt say? but that would probably be one of the effects if she is eatting too much

  • Exercise Science -

    Exactly!

  • Exercise Science -

    is there other reasons than just having a big caloric intake

  • Exercise Science -

    If you burn the same number of calories as the number of calories you take in, then your weight will stay the same.

    If you burn more calories than you take in, you'll lose weight.

    If you take in more calories than you burn, you'll gain weight.

    Other teachers may have more specific information for you.
