Swimming, though I doubt trolls can survive in water.

yes , it depends which breed of horse you're .In some breeds horses can swim. In others they can't. Most horses perfer to just run in want up to their neck which may make it seem like they are swimming.

But all horses can run ,so I say run just to be on the safe side

Whichever one you decide to do with the appropriate calorie deficit.

Running. Swimming makes you incredibly hungry (this is actual fact, not anecdotal) and tends to lead to a lower net calorie deficit.

Good gracious. If you are persistent on trolling someone who has a serious question, at least try and employ some basic spelling and grammar first. This is a website, primarily, for those receiving an education. I would suggest you try and follow suit.

Also, OP, I'd suggest swimming. I'm not an expert but that's just from personal experience and opinion.

swimming is the best exercise for your whole body

it's cardio, a muscle workout and improves joints and flexibility

Why not run then swim? Or run to the pool? But.... well actually, I think running would be better as you would be able to do it for a longer period of time resulting in your body working longer.

If you were to swim, you would get a workout, however you wouldn't' be able to do it as long and your body would get tired faster.

I'm just starting out so if I ran and swam straight off, I think I'd die

Swimming and running are both really the same for losing weight.
Swimming is better for low impact, so if you are susceptible to injuries swimming is probably better.
Most people find running is more fun and sociable and you feel like you are loosing weight, but both are equally good. But running is cheaper!

It's also important to consider which activity you think you will be able to commit to.

Depending on the type of training you do , running is probably a little more efficient than swimming in terms of calorie expenditure but that menas nothing if you don't train as hard or in the same volume as you would something you enjoy .

In short I would say that if your goal is solely to lose weight, pick something because you enjoy it and therefore will commit to it as this will have a much greater impact than the average number of calories burnt per hour etc.

As an additional thing to consider, think about the practicality of the activity - you could go for a run at a moment's notice and get in an extra session. For swimming of course this is not possible.

Finally, why restrict yourself to one activty ? Surely it is better to challenge your body in a variety of ways and mix up your training by trying different things. Perhaps plan a cycle, a swim and a run as a week's activities rather than sticking to just one .

Lol oh well if you are just starting and haven't really exercised in a long time (or not at all), start off light and jog. Jog a lot. As far as you can, as long as you can, and take breaks when you get too tired.

You have to build up endurance; the best way to get in shape when starting off is to start right, in a way that gives you positive results without overdoing it; if you push too hard early, you can mess up your routine and end up slowing the overall process down. It takes a lot of time and dedication and if you are doing either/or, do it as long as you can every day, or switch it up.

But don't overdue it, know your limit and if you don't feel like trying to go over it, don't. You can only have a positive outcome
