    Well you're well inside the normal BMI parameters. So not great rush to lose a lot of weight. If you wanted to get leaner, I recommend you put in your activity level, your height/ weight into the MyFitnessPal app and a goal weight. Then eat the number of calories it recommends by weight out your food and keeping to your calorie limit that it prescribes. So if you exercise 3-4x a week for an hour or so, but are sedentary for much of the day otherwise, you'd be somewhere between active and lightly active (like I am)

    It's fail proof

    Unless you are very fit or have a lot of time then you are highly unlikley to be able to sustain burning 1000 calories a day.

    Does this mean that weight loss is achieved through diet?

    Imo you are better off doing little and often. Walking is 100 cals a mile roughly.


    Maybe do 4x 500 cals, c 1hrs. You should do resistance 3x a week.

    Walk to uni, get a bike it all adds up. It starts with logging and weiging your food though. No deficit= no weight loss.

    Calorie counter, or does your phantom cycling team believe that calories don't exist

    The calorie burner read outs are dreadful, I wouldn't take any notice of them. Exercise 2-4x a week and you'll be perfectly fit and healthy

    I would advise you to start cycling if you want to become more active and have permenant weight loss. Gym is for temporary weight loss.

    MFP is a temporary weight loss scheme. If you are clued up about nutrition, you'd advice someone to be more active by perhaps, picking up cycling, and eat a satiated diet. Burning 1k/day is not hard if you're avtive. Please stop giving stupid advice unless you are able to clearly justify what you are saying.

    If you wnat weight loss it starts with controlling how much you eat= get some scales. Deficit = weight loss.

    If you wnat physical fitness then do exercise. You cna also burn a few more calories but its easier to eat less.

    If you wnat biological health, then eat a balanced nutrutious diet.

    It's not a scheme, it's a calorie counter.

    I'm sure your power metre generates a calorie number for you. It's erroneous and is based off a very dodgy algorithm. 1000 calories is actually quite a lot of calories to burn in a session

    Stop pretending to be an expert and all superior. You're not an expert, nor a nutritionist which you have claimed several times. You're an a- level student with a pompous attitude.

    If you are a healthy active person like me, burning 1k is not alot. If you commute to work and back by cycling, and do fudamental house work, you've pretty much reached that target. The number of people that start gym to solely lose weight for "summer" and actually stick to it, is minimal.

    Advising someone to use MFP is the exact same thing. You should not count calories but instead increase activity and eat in a satiated manner.

    And do not forget metabolic damage
