Cardio impedes weight loss??

  1. Cardio impedes weight loss??


    Can someone PLEASE respond to this guy? He is a user in a forum that I read and is frequently telling people that cardio impedes weight loss and that people can eat as much of fat and protein as they want in order to lose weight. The guy weighs a buck 10, and though I am a paleo proponent myself, I'm seriously worried that someone will take his advice seriously.

    If I am looking to build muscle and burn fat, is it better to run before or after exercising with weights? - Quora


  2. he has a great point actually,

    when i was 23 i hit my leanest by eliminating all cardio and just focusing on weights and diet. i would eat only fat and protein and cut my carbs to under 20grams a day.

    the lack of cardio probably helped support my hormone levels and allowed me to lift and recover better. the additional muscle gains helped increase my resting metabolism.

    i never was so lean in my life, and i did ZERO cardio but i lifted like a madman (but only about 5-6 hours a week total) and did not eat like a normal human.

    agreed start eating up that peanut butter, olive oil, and whole eggs!

  5. I disagree with this guy. As much as they want? That's a ridiculous statement.
    There is a difference between high intensity cardio and low intensity cardio as well.

    As long as you dont do it for too long, too many fats can wreck havoc on cholesterol. Even if you are not doing cardio for fat loss, you should not cut it out completely, how is everyone forgetting cardiovascular health?

  7. Cardio at low intensities definetly has it's place in dieting. I wouldn't do I on a really strict 1500 calorie diet but if your eating 1800 cals I think it can help.

    So eating 1500 calories/day over maintenance levels as long as they are fat and protein will lead to fat loss?

    Myth alert!

    dont forget, your getting more than enough cardiovascular work if you are REALLY weightlifting.
