I ran across this article online that talks about diet and exercise.
I've been exercising like crazy lately (running 3-5 miles AND doing Jillian Michaels 30-day-shred), but I've also been consuming more food because I've been using so much energy and burning so many calories. I still should have a calorie deficit, but I haven't been losing weight. This article helps enforce what I already knew: diet is more important than exercise when trying to lose weight. Don't get me wrong. I KNOW exercise is essential. And I know it's so important to eat right and not under-eat when you're exercising a lot.
But when it comes to dropping pounds, I NEED to be more mindful about how much and what kinds of foods I'm eating.
