Why You Shouldn’t Exercise to Lose Weight, Explained With 60+ Studies – Julia Belluz & Javier Zarracina: Vox
Calories in=calories out. The phrase seems to simply roll off the tongue…but if you or your clients have ever tried to lose weight you know that this is easier said than done. Weight loss is never simple and as science begins to look further into the complexity of the individualistic variables involved in gaining and losing weight we are learning that the calories associated with that “second drink at happy hour” may not be simply balanced by extra 30 minutes on the treadmill.
In our “Best Article of the Week” written by Julia Belluz and Javier Zarracina of Vox, we are presented with current literature regarding the nature of weight loss in relation to diet and exercise. According to the research, exercise seems to have less impact on weight loss, opposed to diet, and that there are a multitude of individual and interacting factors that can come into play when it comes to shedding the pounds. Perhaps nothing new for a Naturopathic Doctor who treats the individual as such, but none the less, a great read to remind us how complicated the equation regarding weight loss can be.
