    Question How does running aid in weight loss?

    How does running specifically aid in weight loss?
    Is it good or bad for obese people to do running, can it wreck their joints?
    Why is a calorie deficit combined with exercise like running better than calorie deficit without it

    It burns calories so it affects your net calorie balance. There is no fat loss advantage beyond this.

    It can improve health too - but then so can plenty of other forms of cardio - and weight training itself can have a marked improvement in health markers too (as long as you do some heavy lower body work, not just upper body fluff).

    It could hurt the joints, especially in heavy people. Practical advice is to try it and if you get any kind of RSI, switch to a lower impact method. I tried very hard to get into running but my feet would always go numb after a couple of miles... I preferred biking in any case.

    Yes, running is bad for obese people as it can do permanent damage to the knees, hips, Etc.

    Cardio in general can be good for you both in helping to create a calorie deficit as well as for cardio/pulmonary health but if you are obese then you should stick to lower impact forms of cardio like walking, elliptical work, cycling, Etc. until your weight is in a more healthy range.

    IMO, if swimming was an option, that would be the best/safest option for very obese people... walking/hill walking would be good too

    This. I'm FAR from obese and daily running has wrecked my joints at the ripe old age of 26. I never racked up any srs mileage or anything, either. I don't think running is a great cardio option for obese people...or most people in general tbh.

    Running especially on hard surfaces is terrible on the body and if you're overweight that is magnified greatly depending on your weight.

    You burn the same calories by walking the same distance. You need to run or walk about a mile to burn 100 calories, or the amount of a medium sized cookie. 11 miles to burn off a big Mac and fries. You can see how Diet is more important than running for fatloss.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    I think a lot of modern running injuries are a result of the overreaching support of running shoes. I've been running in vibrams (toe shoes) for over a decade and have zero knee/mobility issues.

    In terms of fat loss - it helps increase your TDEE making dieting easier and/or allowing you to eat a LITTLE more and still get results. It also is great for your heart and general health/fitness.

    Is that really true?

    The more intense impact of the running seems like it would burn more...

    You're trading intensity for time of exercise so it's pretty much a wash.

    The amount of calories burned over the distance is pretty close overall.

    That said, the higher heart rate from running does improve overall cardio/pulmonary function and will also cause a bit of a spike in calories burned for a few hours after the run so there are those benefits.

    However, those same benefits can be had with an intense elliptical or cycling workout without the potential for damaging the joints that running has.

    No idea how people run, I like playing any sport, hockey, soccer, football, but I HATE just running.

    The only exception is at a lake or scenic place outdoors, and that’s maybe a 5K once a week.

    Someone said something profound one time about running, they said cardiovascular endurance is “easy come, easy go” and it’s very true. You can do a running program for 3-6 weeks and have good cardio for X, but you stop for a week or do some drinking etc... and you’re back to square one.

    Train it if you need to, but for fat loss, o find it just takes away from training and adds recover time with minimal fat difference. Programmed well, maybe you can use the epoc to your advantage

    Perhaps try running barefoot, it seems to help.
