What matters more for weight loss: diet or exercise

Some people rely on diets alone to lose weight, while others exercise daily and make healthy food choices without thinking about calories and fat. Health experts have long debated which is more important to weight loss–diet or exercise, and several have arguably put the subject to rest. Review what several experts have to say as you embark on a Phentermine 37.5mg-fueled weight loss regimen:

Exercise Is Essential….

Yes, you can lose weight with diet alone, but exercise is an important component,” says Michele Olson, PhD, professor of physical education and exercise science at Auburn University at Montgomery, Alabama. “Without it, only a portion of your weight loss is from fat — you’re also stripping away muscle and bone density. Since working out stimulates growth of those metabolic tissues, losing weight through exercise means you’re burning mostly fat. The number on the scale may not sound as impressive, but because muscle takes up less space than fat does, you look smaller and your clothes fit better. Data show that to lose weight with exercise and keep it off, you don’t need to run marathons. You just need to build up to five to seven workouts a week, 50 minutes each, at a moderate intensity, like brisk walking or Zumba. Resistance training helps, too.”

.But It Doesn’t Mean You Can Eat Poorly

As a rule of thumb, weight loss is generally 75 percent diet and 25 percent exercise,” notes Shawn M. Talbott, PhD, nutritional biochemist and former director of the University of Utah Nutrition Clinic. “An analysis of more than 700 weight loss studies found that people see the biggest short-term results when they eat smart. On average, people who dieted without exercising for 15 weeks lost 23 pounds; the exercisers lost only six over about 21 weeks. It’s much easier to cut calories than to burn them off. For example, if you eat a fast-food steak quesadilla, which can pack 500-plus calories, you need to run more than four miles to ‘undo’ it!”

Make smart food choices, exercise regularly, and take Phentermine 37.5mg…and love the results!
