    It's quite simple. Calories in - Calories burned = +/- weight. If you don't exercise, you will burn about 2000 calories a day. A runner....someone who takes running seriously...will burn 1000 calories on a single easy workout. If you really want to lose weight, you have to count the calories from what you eat, and do the math. Provided you voted for Clinton and no Trump in 2016, it shouldn't be too hard

    You have to also cut out five hundred calories everyday for a week and you will safely lose a pound and you just continue that until you hit your goal weight. But it depends on your metabolism, the intensity of your workouts, how much water you drink (the body can't burn fat when it's dehydrated), and it depends on your diet what you eat is so important it's the biggest part of what will determine your results that and your rest days you need a break from working out so you don't overwhelm yourself and so you're not breaking your muscles down. When we workout and we use our muscles and they become sore we can't just keep working them they need rest to rebuild themselves and grow. It's the same with running or doing hiit circuits because you're using your legs and with hiit you're using your whole body.

    Eh, no. Weight loss is 80% or more diet. You will lose weight if your body uses more calories or "fuel" than you consume. Exercise plays a role, but it is secondary to diet. Further more, for exercise to have any real impact, you'd need to perform sustained aerobic/cardio exercise for 30 minutes. Even really slow joggers can go farther than a mile in 30 minutes, so running a mile isn't going to burn very many calories or produce any significant benefit.
