We have some EXCELLENT thoughts shared by Coach Dean in his latest blog, related to this article: www.dailyspark.com/blog.asp?post=the_great
My own additional thoughts are that the article had a definite sensationalist edge, certainly catching one's eye..."you mean I'm wasting my time exercising?!?!" However the takeaway message I got from the article was that regarding actual weight loss, one's food choices has the primary impact on weight loss, not exercise. I absolutely know and REVEL in all the other benefits of exercise, however, and if it doesn't have a direct impact on weight loss I'm not bothered or troubled by this.
I DO think it is helpful for people to know, however, that the notion of getting out there and burning up calories is not really accurate.
For me, I've not experienced any trouble with appetite increase after working out so I didn't buy into this point made by the article.
I think we always have to read everything with a critical eye to what makes sense for yourself and leave behind the things that don't "fit" your personal experience. And always remember that ANY media is going to trend toward sensationalizing so it can grab "eyeballs" and sell products.
