It takes diet AND exercise:
Weight loss is generally 75 percent diet and 25 percent exercise, so it starts in the kitchen.
So, what should you eat? I personally feel that a diet consumed of meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and natural sugar is best. But just as important as knowing what foods to eat, accurate and precise consumption is necessary to optimize physical performance. A good diet will increase energy, sense of well being, while simultaneously flensing fat and packing on muscle. When properly composed, the right diet can nudge every important quantifiable marker for health in the right direction. Diet is critical to optimizing human function.
It’s true that low-carb diets tend to be the most popular because they offer the fastest results, but they can be difficult to sustain and lead to more serious habits (binge eating). Striving for a more balanced plan that focuses on fruits and veggies, lean proteins and healthy fats keep you sustained while regulating glycogen levels- and never cut calories too low (this causes your metabolism to slow, and you can start losing muscle mass).
While you can lose weight with diet alone, exercise is just as an important component. Without it, only a portion of your weight loss is from fat — you’re also stripping away muscle and bone density (no-one wants to be “skinny-fat”).
It’s a no-brainer that diet and exercise are both crucial to your well-being and your waistline. While diet and exercise are both important for long-term weight loss, remember this: “You can’t out-exercise a bad diet.”
