Is Nutrition or Exercise More Important?

You want what millions of other people do—to be lean and fit. Whether you want to trim off extra cm’s so you’ll feel better, look better, or be better prepared to tackle whatever demands come your way, you probably want to find the most efficient way to do it.

Well, with this email, you can figure out if you should put your emphasis on nutrition or exercise to get the results you want. I present the contenders for your weight-loss attention…

In the Left Corner: Nutrition

While fad diets have tried their darndest to malign the fine name of dieting, proper nutrition continues to be a vital way to lose weight/fat. In fact, research has shown that if you’re only going to do one thing in your journey to weight loss, it should be eat better.

What does eat better mean exactly? It means taking very careful note of every thing you put in the hole under your nose ??. But you can’t stop there.

Just paying attention to what you eat isn’t going to make you lose an ounce of weight. You’ve got to take note of it and then reduce the number of calories you’re consuming. If you want to lose fat even faster, you’ll want to make sure your calories are coming from quality food sources.

In other words, you can’t eat donuts and Big Macs every day. You’ll want to go with fresh fruits, vegetables, lean protein sources, and lots and lots of water.??

In the Right Corner: Exercise

Like nutrition, there have been all sorts of fad exercise programmes that have spanned from dangerous to ridiculously funny. But exercise hasn’t lost its place in the race for fat loss. Why?

Because savvy people realise you’ve got to hit the gym if you’re going to maximise your fat loss. The best technique for fat loss is to burn more calories than you take in, and exercise is your golden ticket for shredding calories and building muscle. ??

There are other reasons exercise rocks in the world of fat loss. It’s the best way to ensure that the weight you drop is fat and not muscle. Also, when you exercise, your muscles tone up and grow stronger. With more muscle, your body’s ability to shave off calories increases, making it easier to burn calories even when you’re doing nothing at all. Nutrition can’t do that!

Who Wins the Battle?

More than likely, you read this hoping that exercise alone would help you lose fat because you hate the idea of watching what you eat. Or maybe you’re just the opposite, and you prefer to watch your diet but absolutely loathe exercise. Well, there’s bad news for you either way. This battle that has been waging on for decades (okay, make that centuries) is ultimately a draw.

If you’re not willing to eat right and exercise, the success you see today will be gone tomorrow. Try as you might, one of these ingredients alone is not enough to help you lose weight, keep it off, and have an overall healthy lifestyle. In fact, you will find that once you become serious about losing weight, you will be careful about what you eat because you don’t want to put all that exercise to waste. At the same time, you’ll push yourself harder in the gym because you realise you could burn even more calories and get closer to your goal today.

So stop pitting nutrition against exercise and do both. Your good health and leaner self await!
