If people heavier burn more calories when they exercise ?

Then why are they not thinner than thin people who exercise, I read people who weigh more burn more and quicker

    They do burn more, but it's not a TON more, and they have more weight to lose. When a heavy person loses a lot of weight their ability to burn calories will decrease.

    Wrong. Skinny people need MORE calories to keep their body warm, as they have more surface per liter

    A heavy person burns more calories doing the same exercise as a thin person because it takes more energy to move their heavier larger body.  But as long as a person consumes more calories than what they burn, they will not lose weight which is the case for most overweight people.  

  • Because the calories you consume count also.

    It doesn't show except in numbers by a scale. Loose skin.
