So then, why do I get that "worked too hard" feeling in my legs from lactic acid build-up if I haven't used up all the energy in my fat cells? Trust me, I still have an extra 30 lbs of fat in my body, yet I do get sore legs when I exercise.

Hi Ruth and thanks for reading my blog!

It's not that simple. Just because you say you have the fat to burn does not mean you will use it all up before you get to stage 3. It sounds like you are getting to stage 3 faster than you think.

Calories and fat calories get burned in about a 3 to 1 ratio. In other words only 1 fat calorie is burned for every 3 glucose calories(approximately.)

Depending on how long you have been exercising, your leg muscles could be getting too fatigued causing your sore legs.

Don't try to lose 30 lbs with exercise alone. You will most likely be disappointed. Follow your ERFYT diet and combine it with the exercise.

You didn't mention your blood type or the type, duration and frequency of your exercise routine. Post another comment and we'll figure this out.

I hope this helps,

Tom
