It’s a new year and you’ve set for yourself a health goal – to lose weight. The question now is – what’s the best way to achieve this?
While diet and exercise are both important for long term weight goals, its important to know which one is best for you.
Yes, you can lose weight with diet alone, but exercise is also important. Without it, only a portion of your weight loss is from fat – you’re also stripping away muscle and bone density. Losing weight through exercise means you’re burning mostly fat. On the other hand, its much easier to cut 500 calories than to spend an hour in the gym burning 500 calories every day.
Due to our very busy schedules, most people find it very difficult to find time to jog or go to the gym regularly. Also, avoiding those foods with high calories can be very difficult.
However, both diet and exercise are essential for good health and for keeping that weight off.
So tell me, which option would you choose for weight loss. Dieting or exercising, and why?
