this is my first post so please excuse if i'm on the wrong thread. But I was wondering what REALLY is the point of running when cutting/trying to cut fat. Lets say my basal metabolic rate was 1600 calories and I'm aiming for 1300 a day, from what i've been told, the way you lose fat is to have a calorie deficit, so as opposed to eating 1600 calories and burning of 200 through running, why not just eat 1300 and not run?
TLDR: What are the positive affects of running (aside from obvious like cardiovascular health)
Thanks In advanced.
