We Asked A Doc What's More Important: Diet or Exercise?

So, you want to lose some pounds (probably after you eat all the Thanksgiving food) and are thinking about the best way to go about it. Usually, a wholesome integration of a nutritious diet and a versatile workout regimen does the trick, but when it comes to which one is better there is a clear-cut answer.

According to Dr. Shawn Talbott of the University of Utah Nutrition Clinic, diet is far more critical than exercise. “As a rule of thumb, weight loss is generally 75 percent diet and 25 percent exercise,” Talbott explains. “It’s much easier to cut calories than to burn them off. For example, if you eat a fast-food steak quesadilla, which can pack 500-plus calories, you need to run more than four miles to ‘undo’ it!”

When dieting, try to incorporate a well-balanced selection of food consisting of lean proteins, whole grain carbohydrates and fruits and vegetables. Hopefully, this makes your quest to a healthier life just a bit easier. Happy dieting!

For more nutritious tips, check out the one food you should skip on Thanksgiving, according to a trainer and the one thing you should eat in the morning if you feel nauseous.
