Diet is More Important Than Exercise


Getting back in shape is not an equal relationship. If you want to lose weight or gain muscle, diet is the more important element of the equation. That's not to say exercise isn't important. It's extremely valuable for many reasons. But as the saying goes, "You can't out-exercise a bad diet." It's true. And it's the reason why many people who do everything right in the gym still are frustrated with how they look and feel.


Track your foods to improve your awareness of what you eat. Focus on small behavioral changes. And be patient. Diet changes don't have to be difficult. And they don't have to include complete withdrawal of all your favorite foods. But change must occur on some level if your goals are aesthetically based. Sorry, but gym time alone won't cut it.

HAPPY 2013!!!

    for so long I have been one of those people. I never had to worry about my weight and love working out. Now that I'm into my 40s I notice I need to be a bit more diligent about not eating processed carbs. They like to hang out on my body.
