The Secret Behind Diet Vs. Exercise
Lose Weight Rochester NY
Maybe you’ve been exercising diligently, but you don’t feel any closer to achieving your weight loss goals. Why won’t that stubborn scale budge? Well, you’re not alone. Many of our patients get frustrated when they have consistent exercising habits, but don’t see any changes in their weight. Why even bother to exercise if it makes no difference?
According to Dr. Rana Masood, our board-certified fitness doctor, “Exercise is a fitness tool.” If you exercise without changing your diet, you probably won’t see any changes.
To Put It In Perspective …
A 30 minute walk will probably cost you approximately 150-200 calories (depending on how you do it). But a single bagel will give you 400 calories. If you really want to make a difference, you must first modify your diet.
Of course diet and exercise go hand-in-hand. But exercising alone won’t make you lose weight. The more you exercise, the hungrier you’ll get. In order to lose weight, you need to control your caloric intake. If you’re wondering what types of food are safe to eat, we provide a list of beneficial foods that’ll assist you in your weight loss journey.
Why is it so easy to gain weight and so difficult to lose it?
Many people gain weight during winter, especially given the cold climate in Rochester, NY. Many other factors are stacked against your favor – diseases, medical conditions, age, menopause, etc.
But once you establish a healthy diet – low in sugars and carbohydrates, high in protein, low in saturated fat – you’ll have an easier time losing weight. Then, to keep those pounds off, exercise regularly.
