What do you guys think is the best way to lose fat? Just straight eating less or doing cardio?
Let's say you have a 1700 bmr and you achieve 1500cals for the day... Do you think it will be the same fat burning effect as eating 1700cals and burning 200cals, sitting at 1500cals just the same?
I always thought that just eating less is worse, since 200cals (example) worth of aerobic exercises/running would activate beta oxidation more than just not eating those calories (maybe if you just dont eat, the body will take those 200 cals from glycogen to transform into energy, instead of fat)... I could be very wrong though and it could be only a matter of cals in vs cals out.
what do you think? (definitely share your experiences!)
