I am only on post #16 of this thread so far, but a thought occurred to me about metabolism. Elx, didn't I see a picture of you, and you're pretty trim? I think maybe you can do your cardio and stay trim because your metabolism runs at a high rate.
Meaning, to get the results you want, you can do less work than someone like me, with a much slower metabolism. I need to speed it up. So, I need to work on my strength training and my five meals per day and work in cardio, too, because my endurance is low. I have to work harder than you to see results.
So, from your perspective, doing your cardio works just fine for you.
There's a girl at my gym like that. She eats like crazy, whatever and whenever she wants. And must be 100lbs.
