  • Learned some new information today, Thanks!

    This is a good article! Too many salespeople of these machines lie, especially on tv, just to sell the machine. And desperate people are ready to believe anything!
  • I really like this article because in the winter I do spend a lot of time doing cardio on the Dreaded Dreadmill--Good info--
  • Interesting facts about the REAL counts on machines!
  • interesting to know, thanks
  • I appreciate all the spark articles so much...I learn so much!
  • Myth #5 -- "And, as we know, it's all about calories in versus calories out when it comes to weight loss."

    My major objection in the above statement is the use of the word "all". This simplistic line of thinking has been repeatedly debunked. There are a whole host of other issues that impact weight loss. Illness, inflammation, hormonal disturbances, etc, etc. etc. If you have no inflammation (no illness, no gastro- intestinal problems, no allergies, no sensitivties, i.e no autoimmune responses that often result in water retention and other adverse effects to your body), you are getting your ultimate dose of sleep daily, you have only the slightest amount of stress (i.e. not enough to tax your adrenal glands), you have a wonderful social support system, your thyroid is working perfectly, and you are literally in PERFECT health, then perhaps weight loss or gain is directly related to net caloric intake minus caloric expenditure.

    How many of those people do you know?

    Or, maybe I misunderstood?? Perhaps the author made the above quoted statement pejoratively.
  • I didn't know there were "myths" attached to cardio machines! What a silly & unnecessary article. If you're OFF THE COUCH & working out--it's all good! Doesn't matter what you do, or where you do it--just MOVE! Walking is a great workout...whether inside, or outside. I love my treadmill--saves me from bad weather, unleashed dogs, and attacking birds (damn blackbirds!). So if I'm doing it wrong--oh well. At least I'm doing it!
