I was discussing training with a friend of mine last week. He has a Peloton which he uses for about 3x45 minute sessions per week. He primarily wants to lose weight. He has read that at certain exercise intensity levels you burn more fat vs carbs compared to higher intensity levels where you’d burn more carbs than fat. So he tells me that he does low intensity workouts because he burns more fat than if he went faster.
I tell him that if he went harder he would burn more calories and consequently become thinner. He’s having none of it though.
How can i tell him that his position is one of “A little knowledge being a dangerous thing”?
