    Default Exercise hasn't worked

    I don't know how many of you are "Strictly come dancing" fans but I am. This year seems to be a particularly good group and has included Caroline Quentin who has turned out to be a lovely dancer. she has been quoted in the media as saying that despite all the many hours of sweat, toil and down right hard work that she's put into her training, she's surprised to have only lost a pound and a half of weight. I'm not surprised, as many of us accept, exercise alone isn't the answer.

    I think it is good to have that pointed out publicly by someone known and liked by ordinary people. Perhaps it will help bring the message home.

    But how much fat did she lose and did she gain lean tissue? The scales don't tell everything.

    And muscle weighs more than fat I understand? Or is that part of the 3500 cals to a lb myth?

    I think you’ve only to have watched every week to see that there has been little visible change.

    Agree, Carol! Maybe she’s one whom exercise makes hungry?
