I get asked this question a lot: Is exercise or nutrition more important for losing weight?
Here’s my answer: They are BOTH important!
I know… you’re shocked. Another gray area, and can’t you just get a black and white answer? Nope. 🙂
Here’s the thing, though: if you ONLY CARE about what the scale says, nutrition wins.
If you care about:
- How Your Clothes Fit
- How Flabby You Look/Don’t Look
- Your Strength
- Level of Fitness
- Looking Younger
- The Amount of Body Fat vs. Muscle
- Moving Better
- Reducing Aches & Pains
Well, if you care about any of that, then you have to EXERCISE, and specifically, you have to use weights or some type of resistance training.
It’s like driving a car: what’s more important, the wheels or the engine? You’re at a standstill if you don’t have both.
Start lifting weights and eating better to get the results you want! (Pssst…we lift weights at Her Fitness.)
