  • If you aren't going to change how and what you eat then what is the point? You want to lose weight and you eat pizza?!
    • What’s so puzzling about it? If you keep eating the same way as before, so calorie intake stays the same, but you excercise more so that you burn more calories, it follows that your weight must go down. Pretty basic stuff. In fact, it goes down more than the excercise alone would cause it to, because you build up muscle from the excercise, and the more muscle mass you have the more calories you spend to maintain it even in idle periods.

      Besides, I find excercise a much more balanced, worthwhile answer to excess than dieting. (Of course you should make sure your diet is not grotesquely unbalanced, but that’s a separate issue from how much you eat.) It benefits you in a myriad ways beyond keeping your weight down: greater stamina, more strength and better neurochemical balance, to name just the big points.

      Dieting is a workaround; excercising is a bugfix.
