How to Maximize the Caloric Costs of Exercise: A Relatively Short Story” (published by Archway Publishing), exercise physiologist Christopher B. Scott, PhD, shares a novel approach to maximizing the amount of calories readers burn through a variety of different forms of physical movement.

“In a society where the majority of people are categorized as overweight or obese, exercise can be highly desired, but its weight reduction outcomes are often limited,” says Scott, who has 35 years of experience in the measurement and estimation of caloric expenditure.

The book informs readers that calorie counting can be a guesstimate at best. Scott’s aim is to provide readers with an honest understanding of the science behind the reduction of body fat via physical activity: “The short answer for many of us is that exercise for weight loss is a relatively short story.”

An excerpt from “How to Maximize the Caloric Costs of Exercise”:
As I’ve learned and practiced over the years, it is apparent that so-called measurements of energy costs are not what they seem. When you see a measure of caloric costs anywhere, in published form or perhaps on the electronic console of a treadmill or cycle ergometer or the app you wear, that number must be recognized as an indirect estimate at best, it is most certainly not a direct measurement.
