Excercise without diet = Nothing

Saturday, January 16, 2010

I have been excercising 1 hour every day for over a year. You cannot lose weight doing this.
Sure it is 1/2 the puzzle but with no clear diet plan you will NOT lose weight. I am basically the same weight as when I started.
So here it goes, the diet, the calorie counting, the logging of all food, with the addition of some strength training. Lets see what happens now.

    It all goes hand in hand. Plus, we aren't to do strength exercises everyday, we need a day in between to heal according to SP. Plus, we need to eat healthy.

    i have found i can maintain my weight loss by excercising. it also prevents me from eating when i am not hungry.

However, unless you have a metabolic disorder, a healthy diet is also important to loss weight. I had a trainer that said he has seen people work out for hours a day, but when if they are not eating properly, they will not get to their ideal weight.

i find to if i record what i eat (with the quantity) I make better choices. Doing the 2 together made it possible to lose 30 lbs. i've kept in off for a year. i look forward to putting in the effart to watch the diet better to see if that will help me to get to my final goal.
