Which is more important for weight loss, diet or exercise? The fact is, to look and feel in great shape, you need to get both right.
You can lose weight by diet alone, but you’ll find it a lot harder to keep it off that way. Plus it probably won’t give you the sexy, sculpted shape most people hope slimming down will reveal. People often end up appearing skinnier and sometimes less healthy than when they were carrying the excess pounds if they don’t include exercise in their slim-down strategy.
To a lesser extent, it’s also possible to change the shape of your body through exercise without changing your diet. But modifying what you eat will almost certainly make the journey to getting the body you want a lot easier and quicker.
When it comes to shedding fat, changing eating habits is almost always essential. If you want to lose weight, ask yourself if you are prepared to alter your diet. If t not, it will be much harder to lose weight. If you’re not ready to change what you eat, you’re simply not ready to do what it takes to get the results.
A bonus that comes with combining a good diet with a fitness program is how the two elements support and stimulate each other. When you start making progress in your fitness training you gain more appreciation of your body and more awareness of how different foods make you feel (and look). Then you start wanting to give yourself the quality nutrition you thrive on. On the flip-side, eating healthily makes you feel energized and stronger, which makes you feel like moving around more. You still need willpower at times, but healthy foods definitely become more instinctive choices for most of us as we get more active—and being more active usually happens more automatically when we eat natural, wholesome foods.
