Part 1 of a multi-part series discussing once and for all what is better for you - a healthy diet, or exercise. In this first part, I will discuss what is better for weight loss.
Plain and simple, it is MUCH easier
to cut 500 calories out of your diet than it is to burn at the gym. To give you
an example, many of you could go for a fairly intense run on a treadmill for
20-30 mins. and only burn a few hundred calories. However, by ordering from the
lunch menu at the restaurant and skipping dessert could easily drop those
A well-structured exercise program can do wonders to also help you lose weight, but by strictly focusing on the numbers, an individual can more efficiently cut calories faster and (arguably) easier than the time and effort needed to work calories off your body.
Diet and exercise are extremely effective of keeping
weight off, but diet wins here for dropping weight to begin with.
Quote of the day:
"Those that can push themselves further
once the effort gets difficult are the ones who will win!"
