Why diet and exercise go hand-in-hand.

By |

Some people possess the will power to limit their food intake, to completely change what they eat. I am not one of these people. My post yesterday stated that I am also not a morning exercise person either, and I am happy to report that did not change today, despite my best attempts and good intentions. The point I am getting at,  though, is this: you can’t rely on just diet and just exercise to shred the weight, because more than likely you will falter on one or the other from time to time.

Fortunately, I had a very low calorie day yesterday, only eating a Lean Cuisine five-cheese rigatoni dinner (300 calories!), which helped make up for my lack of a run yesterday, so I didn’t loose too much ground. Instead of having a 600-700 calorie dinner and burning 300 calories on a quick run, I just limited my calorie intake. So, now I am going to throw some math at you to illustrate my point.
