- Q: I’m trying to loose weight so i was wondering which is better i have asthma so i can’t do to much because i can’t breath after awhile if you have any exercise that you have found out that really works to loose weight please let me know thank you
- A: If you can swim a mile that would cause you to lose more weight than running a mile. If you run a mile you will only burn about 100 calories. I do not know how many calories it takes to swim a mile, but it has to be much more than 100 calories. To lose weight you need to control your diet and exercise. It takes 3500 calories to lose 1 pound so you can see that exercise alone will not be effective.

- A: The best form of exercise is the one that you will want to continue doing. If I was to say that stepping was the best exercise but you hated it, you wouldn’t do it, therefore for you that would not be a good exercise.You have already mentioned that you like swimming and running, since both are very good exercises for the body why not focus on those? If you are looking to find which burns the most calories then weight training would be a good option. You can also go to the site below and in the section titled Fitness Calculators look for the calorie counter. With that calculator you can put in a sport or exercise, list how long you’d like to perform the exercise and it will tell you how many calories you will burn.You can then pick one that appeals to you.
