I'm a seventeen year old, and I have to stop running. Without getting into detail, I basically have always had alot of health problems, and I started running about 8 months ago. It seemed that I was okay, and just recently alot o fmy health problems have been coming back, and my parents (my father is a physician) said no more running. That's fine with me because I never really liked running, I just did it to stay in shape. My questoin is, can I quit and go to another aerobic activity (like bicycling), for a shorter duration and less intensity without gaining weight? I was running 4.5 miles a day, in about 38 minutes, then I walked for the last two. This is too much, I knew I couldn't keep it up forever, and now I HAVE to stop. If anyone could help, that would be greatly apprecaited.

Re: Quitting

It depends on how much you are expending compared to how many calories you are taking in. If you are taking in as much calories as before and your workouts are lighter, you will probably gain weight. You were burning a lot of calories with your running. If you plan to not work out as hard you will have to cut back on what you eat.
