    Just wondering what is the maximum in your opinion?

    I know it will be largely subjective to the individual exercising.

    By exercise I mean burning approximately 500kCal/hour at least.

    e.g: 10 hours, 5000kCal burnt (which would be 1.4lb!)

    Would this be an option on how to lose wait?

    I'm anticipating that being a stupid question....

    If you want to lose weight just be very active, and eat smaller portions at meal times/don't snack during the day.

    There's no way you can possibly count how active you are like that unless your solely taking it off a gym machine/whatever.

    For example, i have to walk up and down a very steep hill outside my house every day. I'm up and down it about 8 times in a normal day, and despite it only taking a few minutes every time i'm sure it's making me burn a hell of a lot as i worked out i'm on about 2.5-3k calories a day just to keep going, and need more than that to bulk up.
