    Hi there, just wanted other peoples thoughts on exercise and how much they are doing....

    I am trying to exercise 7 times a week, this week I have only managed 3 x badminton singles and 3 x Legs, bums and tums...

    How much exercise is everyone else doing, I am hoping this will really help in terms of bodyshape and weightloss each week.

    Has anyone any experience of regular exercise whilst on SF or US

    Would really appreciate any thoughts.

    Many thanks

    If your doing a lot of cardio everyday u might need to increase ur snacks otherwise your body will go into starvation mode....i know this from experience as it happened to me....as soon as i up my snacks tho i started losing again. Exercise rocks it tones, improves ur health and makes u feel good so go for it!

    Wow, 7 days a week is a lot. I usually exercise for 4-5 days a week, maybe up to six times or maybe only three.

    I recommend changing up your routines if you will be doing this every day, give your body changes so it will continue to shed. Just a warning, though, even participants on The Biggest Loser sometimes gained weight even when they stuck to the diet and exercised for several hours each day -- if this happens to you, don't get discouraged! Sometimes your body may need a break.

    I don't do as much exercise as I could but I plan to lose a few stone before I regularly commit myself to exercise in case I build muscle..as I've got quite a busy lifestyle anyways :)

    If you simply do cardio, that really should not have you gaining much muscle and should really help you shed pounds. :)

    As a college student with a husband and job, I definitely know what you mean when you say busy schedule... this semester I almost never got to exercise!
