So according to my calculations, I currently have a deficit of 317 calories from diet (BMR-1200 calories I eat a day-exactly) and I burn about 300 calories a day in exercise. So for the 5x a week I do this, it still only equals 3085 calories, less than 1lb. I need to lose 2lbs a week. Even if I burned 500 calories a day through exercise 7x a week, it still would not equal 7000. Do I need to do 2-a-days? Harder, longer exercise? I cant cut back on my diet anymore without being "unhealthy".
I would have to burn 850 calories a day in exercise 6x a week to just barely meet 2lbs loss. Really??

Do short bursts here & there. This will rev your metabolism & keep it that way all day. Do your daily work out routine & like every other hour, hop & the treadmill & run or walk real hard for only 10 min. If you do these short bursts during the day along with your regular work out, you will burn a ton more calories. When we get our blood pumping for 10 min. or more, our metabolism stays increased for a while. So if you do these short bursts throughout the day, you will burn a munch more calories. Even just cleaning real hard here & there will do the trick. If you're counting your calories like online or something, those don't take into consideration your boosted metabolism, so you may be burning more calories than what they say.
