An exercise expert reveals which is more important!
There has always been a debate of whether exercise or nutrition are more important for losing weight.
And it’s a fair debate because if you look at the literature, most of it reveals that NUTRITION is more important for losing weight.
And here’s the problem, it is how we define LOSING WEIGHT!
EXERCISE is a great way to LOSE FAT. And there’s a big difference between just weight and fat.
If you want to lose weight, start cutting down calories, that’s the fastest way to do it.
But, if you also want to lose fat, exercise is a crucial part of this; but realize that unless you change the way you eat with it, most research suggests that you won’t be able to lose weight – despite the numerous health benefits exercise will provide you with.
Modifying both your diets and exercise patterns is the BEST COMBINATION!
It’s interesting because most people that say that they’re trying to lose weight, don’t do both diet and exercise!
Exercise alone, and you won’t lose as much weight!
Diet alone, and you will lose more muscle and some weight along the way!
Do them together and,
- Diet will help you lose fat
- Exercise will help you maintain your muscles
Train Hard! Eat Well! Sculpt Your Body! Enjoy!
