If you have been running about 15 miles a week for one week is it common to gain some weight at first but eventually start losing weight?

yes the extra weight you gained is just muscle...

your legs are burning fat and gaining muscle. you'll lose size in your thighs and whatnot, but the "weight" you're gaining is muscle (which weighs much more than fat). try not to judge your body by the number displayed on the scale. try measuring your thighs once a month or something. i promise they'll get smaller, and then they might actually grow in size a little but they will be toned and firm

Are you running enough? If not, I recommend you start running, that will help you loose weight.

Any aerobic exercise combined with a sensible diet can help lose weight.

Running will produce faster weight loss than sit ups. Cardio is the best option for burning calories and losing weight, this is why running is better.

Impossible, actually. Once you're anorexic you are going to keep losing weight, until you are the most anorexic you can be, and then you'll eventually die. Why would you want to be anorexic without losing weight? Isn't that the whole POINT of anorexia?

They are in common because when you have lots of protein in your body it gives you the energy to exercise which helps you lose weight.

how is respiration important in losing weight

As a matter of fact, swimming may be better than running because it has less impact on joints and more of the body is used for swimming than running.

Eventually-it doesn't really matter how you lose the weight, if you lose enough it does eventually change the face's appearance.

It all depends on what is best for you. If you prefer running inside than do that. Both will work your cardiovascular system and help you burn calories.

Running a 10k everyday will eventually permanently damage your strength and stamina, you need to rest to lose weight and gain lean mass.But since you asked you burn around 600 to 810There is 3500 calories estimated in a pound of fatJust remember you cant burn fat without losing water weight and muscle at the same time.

A lack of motivation prevents many people from losing weight.

On top of having a good and healthy diet as well as exercising, keep in mind that you will eventually gain weight in your legs at some point. While this is not an issue, if you are constantly weighing yourself to monitor your weight don't be discouraged by the stall that you may run into. It's simply your leg muscles strengthening due to the running. I am unsure as to how long this stall period will last for you, I assume its different for everyone but eventually you will push through it and begin losing weight again.

That condition should not interfere with all the standard ways of losing weight, i.e. walking/jogging/running/weight training/changing your eating habits.

User Avatar

Somewhat. It is good to have a balance. Running, swimming, good healthy food etc. and then weight-lifting can partially help. But you should stick with normal weight-losing exercises.

Running or jogging is one of the simplest and most effective workouts for weight loss, as it involves the whole body, with particular focus on the large muscles of the legs.

User Avatar

You have to run enough to burn what you are taking in. That equation is the same for everyone, even if they have the best genes. Calories in must be less than calories burned to lose weight.

I think it is best to exercise as much as you can. Swimming and running are great for losing weight. My doctor told me to eat white meat instead of red meats.
