Good read. Statistics don't take into account 99.9999999+% of all bicycle rides, which begin and end without incident. The minute you start proposing or supporting mandatory helmet laws, check your own head. Bicycles should always be free jump-n-go fun and transportation for the masses.
...also, an obese person attempting to run even 100 yards is going to burn far more calories than an average person running an average mile. An obese person attempting to run only 100 yards a day could easily knock off ten pounds after the first week alone, diet be damned. Exercise is relative to pushing one's personal limits.
Hmm...well, barry, it's true that a genuinely obese person might not be able to run per se, but relative to that, I'd consider an obese person doing as best they can to actually run, to be actually running, even if for brief moments at a time. Repeat, rest, repeat. It's exhausting, full body exercise at its best. The way you argue it is pretty stubborn, that for initial weightloss running is not so good. A person's gotta take the first step, just like with dieting. For initial weightloss, dieting isn't great either. You could go a few days without eating and only emaciate, but over time....etc.
@runforfun--well, yeah, sort of: you have to run 35 miles to lose a pound (very roughly--100 calories/running mile, 3500 calories/lb. weight). The problem is that few obese people are up to running one mile, let alone 35 miles.
OTOH, I do believe fast walking/jogging/running is the best for maintaining a decent weight, not so much for losing in the first place.
hmmm...didn't barry post a playfully sarcastic comment on another editorial recently about dieting (media maven, maybe?) in which he said something like "if you eat more calories than you burn, you gain weight, dummy!", saying that the diet guru being referenced must have "rewritten the laws of physics" to have made some sort of suggestion regarding consumption vs. weight loss results. Well, barry makes that same flawed logic himself in this column when he says "you can't run the pounds off..." etc. Silly! You're just not running enough! Running...not walking or jogging, but real running...is, hands down, the most complete and effective weight loss exercise. If you're not losing weight from running, you're simply not running enough!

Delicious Soup Recipes Deliver Weight Loss Freedom
What If Losing Weight Was Easy...?
What if losing weight wasn't about starving yourself? Or telling yourself "No?" Or pushing yourself to the brink of passing out just to burn a few hundred calories?
What if you could eat just like normal, everyday, except for one meal? For just one meal a day you substitute a fat burning, delicious and satisfying soup recipe?
And what if it allowed you shed pounds week after week? Without starvation dieting or exercise?
Would you try that approach?
