Diet and Exercise go hand in hand
Healthy eating and fitness of the body is the secret to good health and a long life. But, because of our chaotic lifestyles, we overlook this simple truth and end up feeling worn-out with hardly any energy to make it through the day. But there is hope. There are a number of ways in which you can fit healthy eating in your hectic schedule and unwrap years of indulgence. While physical activity can definitely support weight loss, improve your mood and have a number of health benefits, people tend to expect too much of the calories they burn while working out and compensate for the extra work by eating more.
The truth is that you need both good nutrition and exercise together, no matter what your goal is or in what shape you are in. One should not go without the other, and the best results will always come when you understand the complementary relationship that is present between both.
Dieting can help you to lose weight, even without exercise. For someone who is trying to improve their muscle tone, it could also be said that resistance training could provide them with fair results, even without making drastic changes to their diet. However, when both good nutrition and exercise are combined, they create an interaction that allows results that are better and way more noticeable than either diet or exercise alone.
I recommend making slow and steady changes. For example, begin dieting for a week or two before starting with your daily exercise. When you combine dieting, even with a small amount of exercise, it is possible to lose weight and get in better shape.
Strive for progress, not perfection. Be realistic and effective with your goals. Exercise still plays a very important role in helping to burn fat and to increase metabolism, but it makes up for approximately 20 percent of the work. Important fact, your metabolism decreases as your age tends to increase. What you were able to get away with 5,10 or 15 years ago in regards to what you ate eventually starts to catch up with you. Stay away from all those crash diets and focus on making healthier choices. Build a lifestyle, not just a diet and treat your body as a complete system for long term and long lasting results. Be mindful, be happy and be healthy.
