Exercise or Diet?

What is the most efficient way to lose those extra pounds and inches?

It is true that exercise burns calories, tones the body, generates energy, and makes you feel good. But, when starting a weight loss regime - we are what we eat and this is where we should start.

Have you ever seen people in the gym that you know go regularly and work hard but still have that muffin top or flabby tum? How can this be?

Well, it’s official if you want to lose weight – exercise alone does not cut it. Just think that to work off a snack item such as a Mars Bar you would have to do Aqua Aerobics for 50 minutes (and emerge like a ghostly prune!!) Or that chocolate chip muffin you need to go mountain climbing for 45 minutes!! These are just 2 examples but you get the picture.

And these are just the in-betweenies. For your main course if you eat a Chicken Tikka Masala you would have to run at a moderate pace for 1hr 40 minutes.

No... the best way to lose weight is to check out our Food Pyramids for healthy choices and portion advice. But, don’t stop exercising - you can speed up the burning of calories, feel  much better for it, and it is very good for your heart.
