    Maximising weight loss

    I recently lost over 30 lbs and am on my way to lose about 15-20 more by continuing alternating cardio and weight training. My brother wants to lose about 30-35lbs and has recently joined a gym - but, in addition to calorie deficit, he only plans on swimming (alot of laps) and treadmill everyday - he has been doing this for about 2 weeks now with one day off a week.
    Shouldn't he change it up a little, or is swimming considered a form of weight training and treadmill cardio? Shouldn't he have more rest?

    Re: Maximising weight loss

    As long as he continues to eat in a calorie deficit compared to the energy he spends he will continue to lose weight. His natural metabolism may start to fight him at some point and changing things up a bit can help against that, but ultimately as long as he takes in less than he puts out weight will come off. The biggest problem I personally have with that he is doing is he does nothing to help preserve muscle mass. As he looses weight his body doesn't need as much muscle mass to move it on a treadmill or in a pool. The body being very dumb believes it is starving to death. It takes more calories to preserve a pound of muscle than it does to preserve a pound of fat. Thus the very analytical body tells the metabolism to burn that pound of muscle instead of fat in order to save energy for the long haul.

    swimming isn't weight training man.

    but swimming is a very good low impact form or cardio. it is great for those who want to get a really good workout without pounding on the body

    The downside of being better than everyone else, is that people tend to assume you're pretentious.
