I agree whole heartily with the article. I can see it with my own exercise program...never mind seeing the same people in the gym busting their asses on the cardio equipment and their weight not changing (some of them doing 60 minutes or more a day)...I see the same crew every morning doing the same exercise without change in their bodies. This has been going on for 6 months with some of them. I think people should exercise for the "health of it" but not rely on exercise to dramatically take off weight. Diet does that...in my opinion.
CN: It basically agrees with the basic theory around here, that exercise is good BUT you can't out exercise a bad diet. While lack of movement is not a good thing, increased calories in is the main cause of obesity.
There are no shortcuts. No magic bullets. No secret spells. What works is hard work, dedication, and a daily dose of chocolate.
