Best for Weight Loss – Dieting or Exercise?

Share

New studies by evolutionary anthropologists show that our metabolism is largely fixed.  Over the long-term, the amount of energy our bodies burn per day is pretty consistent regardless of activity level.  When you exercise more, the body simply lowers the calories required for other activities.  This shows why severe exercise may not be the best way to lose weight.  While exercise has a place in maintaining skeletal integrity and heart health, diet may be the way to go for weight loss.    Here diet does not mean starvation or fasting, but making simple changes.  These changes include: portion control, eating more “live” food and less “fake” food,  and even simply eating slower and with purpose.
