Exercise is important – but do you know just exercising and trying to lose weight is not going to have any effect? Why so?
Here is an example explained in simple terms: To lose a pound a day, you should consume between 1,200 or 1,500 calories a day depending on body weight and how much you exercise. A 135-pound person biking 60 minutes at 12 miles an hour will burn 369 calories. After your exercise, if you snack on one post-workout protein bar you will put back all the calories that you burnt few minutes back. Therefore, you can see how hard it is to exercise your way through a poor diet. Instead, you have to watch what you eat and exercise.
