I think any nutritionist will tell you reducing caloric intake is more effective than burning calories. It takes a lot of exercise to burn off calories.

I agreed with that statement until I read this about Olympic hurdler Edwin Moses.

After his retirement, Mr. Moses obtained a master's in business while also "detraining" himself, slowly moving from eating 5,000 calories and running hours each day to a more normal pace.


Isn't 5,000 calories 2 or 3 times what the average adult is supposed to eat?
