Okay so if you follow me on Facebook you know that I was sick last week and couldn't get any of my exercise in. Well, I did try to work out one day thinking, "I'm OK" but my body told me otherwise, it told me to sit my butt down and take a break, so I did. I ate any and everything that was given to me last week, I mean I had white rice (Egyptian style), bread, ice-cream and all. Now you know I had to be feeling a certain-kind-of-way as I a...

As-salaam Alaikum ladies!

Okay so pretty much I've been doing the same routine of exercise trying to perfect them:
  1. Total Body Kettlebells
  2. Workout Trainer: Lose it (I've completed the 4 week program Lose it), Pilates and Yoga
  3. Walking 5 or more miles

  • Kettlebells (about 35 min)

Exercise Schedule
  • Monday: Playing at the park with...

Should You Eat Back The Calories Burned From Exercise?

Posted by umm Abdel-Aleem on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, In : Simply Blogging 

As-salaam Alaikum,

QUESTION: My goal is to lose weight. I understand all of the diet stuff and I figured out how many calories I need to eat per day to make fat loss happen.

My question is, am I supposed to eat back the calories burned from working out? For example, if my goal calorie intake is 2000 calories and I eat that amount ...
