    Yeah vodka has hardly any calories. Same with diet coke. Love it :p: (actually not that much.. only if I want to get a little bit drunk)

    Well if you do it 2 or 3 nights a week and you're working up a proper sweat (through actually dancing not just because it might be packed) then it can easily affect your weight.
    pah, do you think that running for example (or any cardiovasular activity) is very effective in helping you lose weight? no it doesnt, it helps tone and build muscle and increase your fitness, but it takes a lot more to drop those pounds. Same with dancing, good for fitness but the fag smoke and the alcohol consumed probably takes it out of you anyway lol

    Of course running helps you lose weight - its one of the most effective forms of weight loss through excercise :confused:

    And yes it does tone and build muscle at the same time but you cant exactly ignore the weight loss it would induce.

    if you are dedicated to running then yes it will help you lose weight, I overstated what I meant then. I think irregular eating/sleeping patterns along with diet is a more likely source of weight loss

    Nah, I have the most irregular sleeping/eating patterns in the world, and I've still put on weight. I mean, for a couple of days a week, I get up at 7.30. The other few days I either get up at 10.30 or 1.30 (depending on my lecture times etc). Then I will vary going to bed on how tired I am, usually from about 1-4am. Sometimes I will have a nap. For example, these last few days, I have got up at 12.30, 7.30, 7.30, 9.45. And gone to sleep at - 2am, 1am, 12 and (well I'm planning to go to bed in like an hour to be honest, I'm shattered). Plus I really don't eat regularly at all.

    On the plus side, over the past day or so I have been exercising round my house, running down the road and stuff (my boyfriend's away so I have like nothing to do). And I have lost a pound!! Yay!!
    Still planning on going swimming, doing stomach crunches etc (have been doing a few of them too) when I'm back at uni, just cos I wanna feel better about myself and not like a chub-chub.

    good idea. im just not quite sure how im making an 'arse' out of myself? perhaps because you dont like being incorrect. i just dont want people to delude themselves in thinking that going clubbing and doing a little 'dancing', drinking alcohol and inhaling second hand smoke is a healthy thing and will make them lose weight when infact it usually has the opposite effect. its best if people know the facts. other people have agreed with what i have said so why do you keep arguing with me with your fallacious ideas? clubbing aint good for cardiovascular exercise.

    bis - good advice and information is rarely free - we should appreciate the times it is.

    Don't try and get a last word. Don't try and carry on with this position.

    Clubbing can clearly be good cardiovascular exercise. People will dance with minimal rest for hours with their heart going at 60% to 80% capacity. This is not something to dispute. This just is.

    Now, join me in trying to persuade susiemakemeblue to put up a video of her dancing energetically That's much better

    Bit rich coming from someone who thinks dancing is standing around waving your arms in the air. Sexy, real sexy.

    I said you were making an arse out of yourself because you continue to go, "No, I'm right and you're wrong! I know I'm right, I'm always right!" when pretty much everyone else in the thread was disagreeing with you. Stop digging, moron.
