Actually, it's the people who can't dance that hardly move.
Exactly. Like me. Unless I'm wasted. In which case, it all balances out and I'm no better off in that sense. Unfortunately, my blood-alcohol will almost always cause some kind of swaying as I constantly try and balance myself which some people think is me dancing.

we aint talking about doing the tango here. in a club people that dance hardly move. it has minimal effects. going for a walk would do you more good.
You need to go into more clubs where dancing is the name of the game Can understand if as a man you just end up a spectator looking at all the pretty sights but your heart should still be pumping then

you obviously dont understand exercise too well. standing around swaying your arms in the air is not effective cardiovascular exercise.

That is classic dead pan or you are immune to beautiful women. Which would be a tragedy

go jogging in the morning (stick your ipod or whatever in your ears, makes it seem so much easier) before eating to target your fat stores (as you havent eaten since the night before)

Drink LOADS of water-water crucial for fat burning

Eat more protein (i ain't talking the shakes or anything, just try and eat more chicken etc.)-its healthy (well obviously depends how you cook it) and fills you up quicker and for longer

Since you are on holiday try and eat 5 small meals a day instead of 3 big ones, will keep you satisfied for longer, you'll burn more calories and you'll probably eat less overall

Get a good load of fruit down you (and take a multivit if you want)-vitamins (especially B vitaminds) needed for fat burn-Or drink smoothies (if eating fruit isnt your thing-but smoothies are expensive)

Drink Green tea (proven to aid fat burn)

Hope that helps

It's not dancing either. Not on this planet, anyway.

Tell me, have you ever pulled doing that? Have you ever pulled at all??

Since I've been at uni I've put on a bit of weight - not much, only like 5lb or so. But it bothers me!! I have been 7 st 10lb for at least a year, and sudddenly I have put on 5lb in 3 months. Now, we're coming up to christmas, and I'm going to get chubbier.
I feel fat, my stomach feels flabby - I know, I KNOW I'm over-reacting, but I want to do something about it!!
Anybody got any idea of how I can get back down to my normal weight - its hardly much? Is swimming a good idea? I really enjoy it and live like 5 mins from the uni pool.
Any other ideas? Foods to knock out of the diet over christmas?
Thanks guys.
Swimming is excellent for weight loss but you need to be regular and do reasonable lengths of time to see the diffence @!

Also cut down on take outs, chocolates etc and have some protein, veg & fruit !

Join the Gym if u can cardiovascular exercises help much !

so not true on the dancing. Dancing is a massively good way of dropping cals. I have DONE it, so it's not impossible. It is literally dancing your ass off for 3-4-5 hours at a time.
totally agree swimming is ace for toning the arms and tummy and I've also found that about dancing the only problem is resisting the burger at the end of the night which undoes all the good work.

Less crap food, jog as much as you can - probably the best for you. Or if you feel like doing something new - Row!

thanks for all the helpful advice guys - I may well go out and do a bit of jogging since I am way too stingy to join the gym :P and being a music student I have plenty of free time for swimming (which I realy enjoy!)
Merry Christmas!

No, in short. I dance a lot to a point at which it's more vigorous than a gym session. :cool:
And what do you dance to?

I agree with all you say there other than that, the body starts to revert to stored fat as the main energy source after about 30 minutes of exercise so... obviously 30mins + is better if they have the time. I would also say a slow release protein such at cottage cheese before bed is better than nothing.

Obviously im thinking as a body builder here trying to maintain muscle mass at the same time, which isn't so much of an issue for most as they can afford to go into negative calorie intake ever so slightly and have no problems with muscle loss, so then 20 mins of cardio still has some effect.
Your body burns fat from the minute you start exercising, and how much fat is burned after that depends on heart-rate.

sure, it burns off a few calories. maybe hours of it would be about enough to burn off a slice of bread. very very very ineffective method of losing weight though im afraid. it does no more than walking around for a while.
what are you basing that on? Dancing for about an hour burns roughly 400 calories.....
a glass of whole milk is 150 calories.....
a slice of bread is about 265...

do the math.

dancing IS a very good way to lose weight.

of course it does more than walking around for a while - it's full on aerobic exercise!

absolutely everything you just said is incorrect. 265 calories in a slice of bread?! are you off your tree? maybe a thick slice of bread smothered in lard.
