    Question wieght loss plateu-experts wanted

    ok, ive heard alot of mixed responses to this question :can you over train when doing aerobic exercises? i have been trying to go at least 5-6 times to the gym for cardio and 3-4 times a week for weights. whenever i do cardio, i like to get my moneys worth so i am on it for about an hour and i really like to do the eliptical machine(in a 60 minute workout with 5 minute cool off i burn around 1100 calories!) so technicly im burning 5500+ calories a week from just exercise(i also eat less/healthy) is this too much? can i slow down my weight loss by training 5-6 times a week on the eliptical machine for an hour each day? can it be bad to only use that machine? thanks all.

    Counting cals is a must. Otherwise, you lose track, eat too little and you metabolism grinds to a halt. As for exercise, you are overtraining. With three days weight training a week, plus only 1500kcals a day, combined with 5 days of one-hour cardio sessions.

    So you're eating about 1,500 calories a day, but you're burning 1,100 of those calories? How are you still alive?

    ok i must definitely be eating alot more than i would imagine. are there calorie counter websites where u just put in what you eat and it does it for you? and also, would doing the same machine for my cardio all the time be bad?

    Doing the same machine is not bad. I've been using the treadmill for years and I can still lose fat. Your body does not adapt to exercise like it does to weight training.

    www.fitday.com is a site. Never used it, but I see it come up here a lot.
