How much exercise do you need to do to lose weight?
It depends on 2 factors: how much you exercise and how many calories you consume. Exercise without proper diet doesn't usually do much for weight loss, however it still does alot for your heart and brain.
Research suggests that approx. 60 mins. of moderate intensity exercise, like walking, for 5 days a week, in connection with a reduced calorie diet of 1,250 to 1,500 calories. This is in line with the findings of the National Weight Control Registry.
