Something like a pound of fat contains 10,000 calories.
3500 calories, actually.
A goofy mind experiment that has actually worked for me in the past to get back on a regular exercise program:
Tell yourself you have hidden arcane knowledge, and actually know a magic spell that you can cast to make yourself more confident, more energetic, better-looking, and more successful in life overall.
You have to cast this spell once a day for it to be successful, and it takes about half an hour to go through the magic ritual. The ritual can consist of a number of things, but can be quite physically demanding! Still, you know that if you cast this magic spell every morning, over time it is guaranteed to attract the favourable attention of the elder gods, or Norse pantheon, or whatever, and they will bless you with better health, more energy, self-confidence, yadda yadda yadda.
Half an hour out of your day to cast a magic spell with guaranteed results? Who wouldn't do it?
Again: goofy. I know. But it actually does the trick for me when I'm trying to get back on a routine after a while off due to illness, travel, etc.
Cloud does accurately make note that the exercise group did lose an inch in waist circumference but undermines that achievement by saying that it was only a “slight” achievement. In reality, losing an inch in waist circumference is no small feat.
