    Hmm!? 80%MHR for 40 minutes? Thats bloody hard work, Id of thought it would of taken a while to get to that sort of intensity.

    I might add that although your burning calories during exercise the effects arent noticeable instantly. Remember a pound of fat contains 3500 calories, so after a workout which burns 500 youre not going to visibly notice any fat loss. Its only after a week of doing it or whatever that you start to notice it...
    Well i was working initially at 80%mhr on the cross trainer, started march/april, and progressed to 40 on that.. Then obviously started 25-30min on the treadmill and worked to 40min. Yes it fluctuates, and sometimes goes over 90% when i increase the speed nearing the end. But i do work at that, and it is bloody hard work!! Taking it's toll on occasions i will admit!

    yeah, as dani said, making subtle changes like stopping eating meat and white bread can work wonders... did for me too.
    i have found when i've been on insane exercise reigimes (ie. 2 hours intensive gym workout a day) i get annoyed that i am not losing weight... i reckon thats partially due to putting on muscle. also if you've started drinking more water then that'll make it appear like youve put weight on when you step on the scales, when really you just have a belly full of water!
    i used to be ultra fit and obsessed with exercise, then did none for a year and got fat... so it mustve been doing some good!!! i have to admit that i have lost 2 stones in 6 months doing no exercise at all... unhealthy yes, but at least now i can return to the gym with a little (if wobbly) bottom.

    I couldnt even guess, for a start, people burn normal calories at different rates whilst doing exercise, secondly, the amount of those calories burned from fat/carbs/protein is different for everybody, and it fluctuates according to heartrate. Absolutely impossible to guess I might also add that, 80% Heart rate youre gonna be burning mostly carbs Try reducing it to 60%, where most of the calories burned will be from fat.

    not eating that isn't rediculous, I know loads of people who don't actually eat...unless we go out to dinner or something!

    You think doing a 2 hour gym workout(I presume youre talking about cardio here) is going to put on ANY muscle??? Nevermind the muscle gain equalling fat loss.

    Ah right, even more for contention now... so work at roughly 60% but surely if you increase the speed (therefore calories burnt) then heart rate will increase, which is a contradiction. SInce too high is carb, lower fat, but need to burn calories!!

    AAHAHH!

    Yes youll burn less calories, but the calories youll burn will be more from fat. I think youll agree, burning 300 fat calories is better than burning 400 carb calories - especially when the next time you eat its probably going to contain a hefty amount of carbs.
