Exercise vs Diet: Which is More Important For Weight Loss

Many of us spend much of our lives wanting to change our appearance in some shape or another. Whether it’s our body, our face, or our hair, we as a species are often very rarely satisfied with ourselves. Most of the most common ways we try to change our appearance are by focusing on our weight. Often we’ll resort to fad diets in a desperate attempt to quickly lose some weight, but what many people don’t realize is that these crazy crash diets rarely actually work. You put your body through a lot of stress and once the diet is finished often times people go back to their old habits or even over-indulge to make up for lost times. The key is consistency.

This doesn’t only happen with diets, however, oftentimes in a bid to get a ‘bikini body’ as fast as humanly possible, people will hit the gym extremely hard over a short period of time, spending hours in the gym to try and get the impossible ‘perfect body’ as soon as possible, but again, similarly to the diet issue, these people often fail to realize that going to the gym is all well and good, but if you’re not establishing a routine that you will continue on, past beach season, you’ll end up falling back into the same damaging cycle in which your body adjusts from you spending hours in the gym to simply not going at all.

 

The Answer?

Well, as frustrating as it may be, both exercise and diet are crucially important if you’re hoping to lose weight. As previously mentioned, they each have their own benefits, but it won’t be until you combine both elements that you really start seeing some results in your weight loss journey.
