What is faster and more effective to lose weight: diet or exercise?
November 5, 2020
When we go up a size (or two) and we want to get rid of that "excess" fat Many people see this problem as a trade-off and take one of two paths to diet or increase physical activity. But intuitions and personal preferences aside, it is time to listen to science and find out if it is possible to lose those extra pounds just at the gym and continue to keep our little "whims" in our daily diet in the form of beer, appetizer, pizza, muffins for breakfast… Do we lose more weight on a diet or killing ourselves in the gym by exercising? ¿It is mandatory to combine both options to lose the excess weight? Science has the answer… and you might not like it if you're a big fan of after-gym straws.
Unfortunately, lovers of the sport of compensation for hypercaloric whims are not right in their assumption that it does not matter to snack in the morning if later in the afternoon we are going to kill ourselves running on the treadmill. To start because we tend to underestimate the caloric power of the food we eat at the end of the day (We all think we eat fewer calories than we actually take) and to continue because we overestimate the calories we consume by running two laps around the block. That is a scientific fact and he proved it years ago researcher Jason Block and his team from Harvard University.
