The myth that if you exercise, you can eat whatever you want, couldn’t be further from the truth. If only it were that simple! The fact of the matter is, your diet is the first thing that needs a major overhaul when you plan on getting into and staying in shape. When you are trying to lose weight, your diet should consist of more fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and staying away from processed foods, sugar, and alcohol.
Sure, you may run into the occasional person who is thin and seems to eat whatever they want and not gain weight. Exercise and diet go hand in hand so don’t be fooled!
