Stop Running for Weight Loss



If you love running for the sake of running, great. That’s awesome, and you’ll probably be a healthier and happier human for it. But if you’re picking up running because your friend lost 30 pounds as soon as he started jogging in the mornings and you’re trying to lose the same, please stop.

In this episode of What’s Good, Greatist founder Derek Flanzraich explains the ways running for weight loss can be physically and mentally damaging to you—as well as some other effective strategies you can try if you want to lose weight.
