View Full Version : how the body works

this is probably a dumb question but... this past week i did extra cardio, and for the sake of argument, we'll assume the treadmill reading was correct andi burned 900 extra calories throughout the course of the week.
unfortunately we had company this week and i was forced to stray from my diet and have some fried/fatty food, lets presume that was 500 calories MORE than what i would normally take in eating healthy. have i just taken 2 steps forward w/the extra work, and then one back with the crappy food?
in other words, is feeding/depleting the body like a mathematical equation? if i pig out today will i have to do some extra work over the next week to burn off what i have done today to get back to where i was? hope this makes sense.

Ya it works like that. The body is a constantly working machine.

But, the extra 500 calories you had isn't going to hurt your diet. Just don't make it a habit. ;)
