We tip the scales and turn up some surprising findings
If you’re planning on walking any extra weight off, you better prepare for a long trip. Exercise scientists estimate it will take you about 150km of walking to shed just one kilogram of fat, which is a long way to go for a measly kilo.
For a while now, what you eat has been considered more important than the exercise you do in the argument over which has more impact in losing weight.
That idea was upended last year, when scientists from the Global Energy Network claimed there was “virtually no compelling evidence” that fast food and sugary drinks are the causes of obesity.
