How Important is Exercise for Weight Loss?

A study was released about a month ago confirming something I’ve suspected for decades.

I’ll discuss the study in a sec.

But first…

I’ll talk about my own personal experience.

I always wind up consuming a better, lower-calorie diet when my exercise habit is dialed in.

eat a healthy diet along with good workout

I think it is because I don’t want to waste my gym efforts.

I figure if I spent all that time in the gym, why would I “undo” that effort by eating poorly?

A recent study came to a similar conclusion:

The influence of 15-week exercise training on dietary patterns among young adults

2,680 young adults were put on a 15-week aerobic exercise program.

They were told not to change their diet but as the study went on… they changed their diet anyway.

Most participants reduced or dropped the fried foods, sodas, and junk foods in favor of lean meats, fruits, and veggies.

I simply think good habits encourage other good habits.

For me…

I eat better when I have a good exercise habit, which leads to me cleaning my house more, which leads to better work habits, etc.

I think of it as “habit stacking”.

If you are having a tough time eating a healthy diet, consider really dialing in your workout.

This combo will lead to incredible changes for the better.

I have found that cardio, in particular, is one thing that forces me to follow a good diet.

exercise or diet best for fat loss

If I am just lifting weights, I will justify that maybe the extra calories will help repair the muscles quicker, etc.

Not so with cardio.

If I spend 30 minutes on a cardio machine, it’s purely for the calorie burn. Eating extra calories simply makes me feel like I wasted 30 minutes.

To master using cardio machines for fat loss…
