    So, you can out-exercise over-eating ... but you've got to walk 1,000 miles ?

    What was his % of bodyfat BEFORE he started? If he was very lean wouldn't it naturally be harder for him to lose weight compared to an obese person? Was the goal of the exercise to lose weight? What was his diet during the exercise?

    Oh, I'm sure of two things: (1) goal wasn't to lose weight and (2) the guy couldn't have been out of shape to have been asked to walk one mile every hour of every day for 42 days straight.

    That said, I'm rail-thin but, as a personal experiment, lost 12 pounds, in 24 days, last summer. So, virtually everyone has fat that can be lost. So, it was just astonishing to me that 1,000 miles yielded a loss of 3.5 pounds.
