Exercising vs Dieting: Who Wins?
This question is a bit like asking ‘Which is more important for driving — Your front wheels or back wheels?’
It’s hard to go far without both.
It’s true that you can’t out-exercise a bad diet.
But the benefits of working out are tremendous.
Dieting can take fat off your body.
But working out makes you the sculptor of your body.
You can literally shape your body to look how you’d like it to look.
In other words, dieting can take inches off your butt — but working out can give you THAT ASS 🙂
Keeps You Young
What good is being skinny if your body’s useless?
Although we all grow older, ‘getting old’ is a term to describe a body that is breaking down and withering away.
But that doesn’t have to be you!
You can keep your body young and strong through functional fitness training
Makes Cutting Calories Easier
In order to lose weight you must burn more calories than you eat.
Standard dieting practice is to eat 500 calories less than what you burn each day.
Take the average American female and plop her in front of a computer all day and you’re looking at a person who burns roughly 1,500 calories a day.
So, in order for her to lose weight, she’s trying to survive on 1,000 calories a day.
Enjoy them rice wafer disk things!
You could take 45 mins out of your day, hit up one of Fighting Fit’s awesome Fitness Boot Camp or Fitness Kickboxing workouts (burning up to 1000 calories) and then go home and have yourself a delicious steak for dinner.
Because cutting 500 calories from 2,500 is a whole heck of a lot easier than cutting 500 calories from 1,500.
