    You need to climb 37 stories of stairs to burn just 100 calories.

    In reality, it’s more about raising your metabolism to burn more calories, not the exercise itself.

    We are told that, to lose weight, we need to eat less and exercise more. Depending on how much you weigh, it can take 5-10 hours of running at 5 mph to lose 1 lb. (11-22 hours at 8 km/hour to lose 1 kg). Exercise is good for you, but the only realistic way to lose weight is to eat less.

    If I did that much exercise after being sedentary for a long time I’d hurt my back or pull a muscle.

    Exercise is for health and long-life. Dieting is for weight loss. Don’t confuse the two.

    Maybe you should just eat less overall, Rat. And no more beer.

    And since you burn calories just by being alive, you didn’t burn 200 calories by exercising, you burned, say, 140 calories more than if you’d spent the same time on the couch.

    But exercise and watching what you eat are still worth it, and can still work. Just don’t expect miracles, and don’t expect the results to be instant, or even quick.

    Sloths prefer sleeping while curled into a ball in the fork of a tropical tree. They also like to sleep hanging by their claws from tree branches.Sloths mate and give birth in trees. Courting starts when a female yells a shrill, monoton mating scream to let the males in the area know she is ready. If more than one male answers this call, the suitors will fight for her by hanging from branches by their feet and swiping at each other.Two-toed sloths are omnivorous, meaning they can consume plants and animals. Their diet includes fruits, leaves, insects and small lizards. Three-toed sloths, on the other hand, are almost entirely herbivorous (plant eaters). Their diet consists primarily of leafs and buds from select species of tree, including the leafy cecropia tree. The leafs that make up much of the sloth’s diet are difficult to digest. But like many herbivorous mammals, sloths have a multichambered stomachs filled with symbiotic bacteria that can break down cellulose.

    Sloths digest food even more slowly than they eat it. In fact, it can take up to a month for a sloth to digest a single meal, according to the Jacksonville Zoo in Florida.LIVESCIENCE

    Many Sloths eat a diet with low nutritional value which is why they take a long time to fully digest what they do eat. So they move very slowly partly because they have a relatively low calorie intake. So not exactly a model that fits Rat’s preferred lifestyle.

    Rat’s conclusion is eminently reasonable. All that exertion can be dangerous!
