The point the videos were making is illustrating the absurd by being absurd. And the underlying fact is that no matter how long or intense you work out, it's doing you no good if you're not eating right first. Believe me, I know. All cardio equipment over-estimates calorie burn, no matter what mode they're in. It's simple arithmatic...you have to create a caloric deficit and in order to do that, you need to eat less and move more. But it's an 80%-20% ratio with nutrition being the 80%. Any nutrition or fitness expert will tell you that. It all comes down to the fork...first, then we are training a good nutrition program...which I still battle every single day.

I am not sure why you posted this video. I watched the first one. Diet verse Cardio. 1. We don't sit down and consume half a pizza at a time.... maybe a guy would but ladies not likely. 2. The treadmill workout is an estimate of what you would burn. You may actually burn higher if you weigh more. 3. Exercise and eating have to be in balance. If you don't exercise your body will fail you. You will begin to age before you realize.

By far this is the best advice... suggestion... tip... or whatever else you want to call it, I've ever received.

Diet vs. Exercise...it's no contest...Diet wins every time. Weight loss is 80% how much you eat and 20% how much you move. If you get the diet right... workout smart and intense... you will be successful.

You can't out exercise a bad diet...EVER!!!

The best metaphor I've heard that desribes it is this...Diet vs. Exercise is like GOD on Jeopardy...it's a mismatch.

Here are four videos I found on youtube to illustrate my point. Watch the first one then just click on episode #2, #3, and #4. Remember, they illustrate the absurd by being absurd. Enjoy them...
