I think that the only chance to loose weight on saxophone playing is to run around while doing it (you will need a denture after a while though :twisted: ), don't ever eat while you play (that's easy!) or before.... or after for at least 2 hours, play for a minimum of 8 hours non stop that is :twisted: . Remember that alchool has plenty of calories too! No Beer, just water, this will keep your reed moist and your sax-life clean!RootyTootoot said:I recently got some new gear so i've been practising a lot more. Yeah, i'm shallow that way. In 5 days i lost half a stone! And i had chocolate cake yesterday and it was a big piece. No seriously - has anyone done any research on the fat burning potential of playing the sax and should i maybe switch to baritone?
(Apologies if this is an old topic. I'm new and i did search)
I am about 264 pounds ......I obviously don't do any of this I told you!
