Harsh reality. My head likes to think if I exercise I can eat whatever I want. Understanding how many calories are burned with exercise is an eyeopener too. This article was a great reminder.
At work, a friend who was always on a diet was eating her third doughnut. She said it was ok because but she would walk it off after work. Walk to where...Canada??
Good article for the time-Things change and so does what counts as good fitness
One of the best articles I've read. Have to say I miss Coach Nicole!
Thanks for the hard truth. Hope this will shatter some of the myths that any activity would help. It was never enough to just walk around the block. You have to exercise even if you don't like it. It is your life.
I do want to add that calories is not as important as what you eat. Have to cut out the carb and other junks. But there will be another article.
Thank you for sharing.
Good advice, good article, thanks!
Sometimes I wish this ALL were no true! HAHA!
