  • Diet matters more than exercise for losing weight

    It's really important that we never forget that if we want to lose weight we need to change the way (and often what) we eat. Eating fewer calories and eating better foods like healthy sources of fiber and protein are what will help us to lose weight. Exercise is very good for health and wellness and for maintaining weight loss, but it's not the main driver behind weight loss. I often forget this and in case I'm not the only one who tends to forget this, I thought I would add this tip :D

    You're right. Lowering the amount of calories you consume through your diet is the primary driver of weight loss. That said, exercise is what actually makes you look better. I mean, you can lose weight, but if you're out of shape, you'll weight less but still be flabby hahaha. I think that's why it's best to combine them both.

      I'm one of those people who think that they are both really important for the best and healthiest weight loss. It's not a matter of choosing one over the other, it's finding a way to combine them perfectly for yourself. Just watching what you eat without exercising isn't good for you, just as eating a whole bunch of garbage and exercising isn't the best path either.

        That's a good point, and I do think that exercise is important, I just mean it's not enough on its own. People tend to think that if they just exercise more they'll lose weight, but that's not how it works. Changing your diet is a must.

          Yes! Changing diet is essential. If you're eating way too many calories, you're not going to lose weight through exercise. It's that simple. Exercise only really helps with weight loss when you're following a diet that doesn't include you overeating!

            I actually think the best weight loss and fat loss regimen is one that includes watching what you eat and engaging in strength training. When you build muscle, you deplete your fat storage. So not only do you burn more fat as you build muscle, this also make sure that as you lose fat you're replacing it with muscle so you still fill out your body so you don't get that saggy look. Plus, when you have more muscle, your metabolism typically works faster which is also a bonus :D

              I was totally going to bring up the same point! Diet is definitely the key factor, but it's also about raising your metabolism and helping to get rid of that stubborn fat with the help of resistance and/or strength training. Lifting heavy weights can do great things for your body (and your weight loss goals and weight management goals) when done properly. And, contrary to popular belief, lifting heavy weights doesn't make you bulk up. It builds your muscles and gives your body definition, but it doesn't turn you into a body builder. Diet, cardio and strength training is a fantastic combination for losing weight steadily and getting fit at the same time!

                You're correct. Bringing down the measure of calories you devour through your eating routine is the essential driver of weight reduction. All things considered, practice is the thing that really makes you look better. That is to say, you can get more fit, yet in the event that you're in a bad way, you'll weight less yet at the same time be out of shape hmm. I believe that is the reason it's ideal to consolidate them both.
