Hi, there are so many experts here, that can answer your question more accurately. for me, i just deduct the exercise directly from food calories, to get to the calories defitioncy that i need to lose the weight. say for example if i have 1200 calories from food intake, i'll make sure to exercise and burn at least 500 calories a day, so my calories balance stays at about 700.
hope i didn't confuse you more??!!
Never give up on a dream just because of the length of time it will take to achieve it. The time will pass anyway.
