Can You Exercise A Poor Diet Away?
If weight loss is calories-in-calories-out, does that mean you can exercise away a poor diet? Find out why this train of thought might be keeping you from your weight loss goals.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could exercise that pizza off at the gym?
There’s a huge misconception that you can eat whatever you like, as long as you exercise, and still maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle but unfortunately that’s not the case.
At Rapid Loss, we know the most effective way to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle is through a combination of diet and exercise.
You can’t exercise a poor diet away, and here’s why.
You Are What You Eat
The myth that you can out-run a bad diet seems to come from calories-in-calories-out thinking however not all calories are absorbed the same in the body.
Depending on what you eat the hormones in your body are signaled to store or burn fat, boost or crash metabolism, and build or break down muscle.
Something high in processed sugar like a bar of chocolate is going to spike your insulin levels and trigger your body to store that as fat. Comparatively, a healthy whole food like broccoli will trigger hormones like glucagon, that releases fat to burn for energy.
What Should You Be Eating Instead?
If your goal is weight loss, the idea of calorie deficit still stands, you just need to consider the types of food you’re eating. This is your bodies fuel after all.
Figure out how many calories your body needs and make sure you’re getting those calories from healthy, nutritionally balanced sources. That means whole foods like vegetables, fruit, whole grains, healthy fats, and healthy proteins.
If you’re coming from a history of poor eating habits and don’t know where to start, don’t worry. Making healthy food choices doesn’t have to be difficult. At Rapid Loss, we’re regularly creating and sharing healthy recipes to help you make better food choices.
Don’t Stop Exercising!
It’s important to know that just because diet plays a major role in weight loss, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be exercising regularly.
Exercise still has its place in a healthy lifestyle and is necessary for changing your body composition to build muscle and burn fat stores.
If you’re not already exercising regularly start incorporating exercise into your routine. You don’t need a gym membership or equipment to burn calories.
