Aerobic exercise burns a certain amount of calories, running a mile burns 100 calories, be aware that the number is usually based on about 70 kg man. If you weigh more than that you will burn more calories for the same aerobic activity, and if you are lighter you will burn less calories.

My dear Justreal I can agree with you that exercise does burn calories but sometimes our genes has something to do with our weight loss ambitions. One day may be different from another especially when you thyroid is not working well on that day itself. Running at different speed does sometime affects our calories burn out. Also depending on the slope of your running does determine again the amount of calories burnt away. Speaking a bit off tangent, we can perform other more interesting aerobic exercise if you wish to make exercise a part and parcel of your lifestyle. I do hope that my takes is good for you. OK? Thanks! Love; Bro Joe. GBU. PS. Nice to have a RSVP and ASAP from you.

Dear Fellow Mylotter. Believe me you seems to be quite knowledgeable on weight loss matter but sad to say that it is not running for one mile you burn 100 calories. It's an accepted fact that walking and mind you not running will burn 300 calories generally. Also any aerobic exercise should be at least 45 min. of more. It will then pump the heart to increase the blood to induce sweating and calories burning. Of course 'strength' training does burn calories but of lesser amounts. On the other hand, muscle building help to burn fat calories and increase heartbeats too. Don't expect to lose too much weight with resistance endurance. Bear in mind that muscles are heavier than fats. I do hope that this will add more weight to your discussion. Thanks. Love: Bro. Joe. GBU
