    I think it does help you to lose weight....my garden is quite big so there is always lots to do. It is too far to back into the house (I'm lazy) for a piece of cake or a biscuit, so no snacks. I could take out a thermos flask and lunchbox....but that is getting silly.

    Paul B3 - all that exercise will, if you converted fat to muscle - just mean you take up less space.

    Brisk walks and dancing do it for me.  Gardening makes me hungry and, after a good day and a long hot shower, I enjoy a glass of wine while I enjoy the results - vegetables, salads, fruit - so no, not good for weight loss tho it keeps one fitter and more flexible than sitting about.

    A full day in the garden for me, mowing, weeding, tidying can usually equate to 12000-14000 steps according to my iphone app, which is about 4 miles, its not a brisk rush around the garden but it must count for something......please tell me it counts for something, i sure know about it the next day, with aches and pains ?

    Yep Loana - good for your brain in more ways than one.
