Why people fail to lose weight through exercise

 “When I feel like exercising I just lie down until the feeling goes away.” – Robert M. Hutchins


A large number of things that people promised to leave behind with the end of 2018 which include bad jobs, bad relationships, bad habits and bad friends. But it is matter of only few days when people follow their old routine which again includes bad jobs, bad relationships, bad habits and bad friends. In every January, top resolutions for upcoming year is to lose weight[1]. And if you’re looking to be successful, there’s something you must know about Diet Control is more important compared to exercise.

Keep monitoring your diet and weight

According to nutritionist Lisa Drayer[2] it is not true. He further says that he always tell people that what they omit from their diet is so much more important than how much they do physical  exercises. He further suggest that all of human  “calories in” come from the food a man  eat and the beverages he drinks, but only a portion of these “calories out” are lost through exercise only.

Alexxai Kravitz[1], an investigator at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases says that he as part of the National Institutes of Health generally accepted that there are three main components to energy expenditure.

  1. Basal metabolic rate, the amount of energy it takes just to keep your body running (blood pumping, lungs breathing, brain functioning).
  2. Breaking down food, scientifically referred to as “diet-induced thermogenesis,” “specific dynamic action” or the “thermic effect of food”.
  3. Physical activity

Kravitz describes that most of people, basal metabolic rate accounts for 60% to 80% of total energy expenditure, he further say that minimal rate of energy expenditure compatible with life. Kravitz also says that as you get older, your rate goes down, but increasing your muscle mass makes it go up. About 10% of your calories are burned digesting the food you eat, which means roughly 10% to 30% are lost through physical activity.

Where fat goes when you lose weight

Avoid stuff made off dairy Cream

An important point here is that this number includes all physical activity including walking around, typing, fidgeting and formal exercise,” Kravitz believes if the total energy expenditure from physical activity is 10% to 30%, exercise is a subset of that number. The average person, professional athletes excluded to burns 5% to 15% of their daily calories through exercise. Kravitz further said. That it is not nothing, but it’s not nearly equal to food intake, which accounts for 100% of the energy intake of the body. What’s more, as anyone who’s worked out a day in their life can tell you, exercising ramps up appetite and that can sabotage even the best of intentions. According to calculations by Harvard Medical School[2], a 185-pound person burns 200 calories in 30 minutes of walking at 4 miles per hour (a pace of 15 minutes per mile). You could easily undo all that hard work by eating four chocolate chip cookies, 1½ scoops of ice cream or less than two glasses of wine. Moreover a vigorous cycling class, which can burn more than 700 calories, can be completely canceled out with just a few mixed drinks or a piece of cake.

How to Cheat on diet with running/exercise

Soda/Drinks can spoil your efforts to reduce weight

According to Drayer it is really so disproportionate that the amount of time that you would need to exercise (to burn off those few bites of food.   The sentiment here is that you’ve “earned” what you eat after working out, when instead. if your goal is to lose weight than you’d be better off not working out and simply eating less. The point to remember is that not all calories are created equal, but for simplicity’s sake, 3,500 calories equal 1 pound of fat. So to lose 1 pound a week, you should aim to cut 500 calories every day. If you drink soda, cutting that out of your diet is one of the easiest ways to get there. Drayer further says that other thing is that exercise can increase your appetite, especially with prolonged endurance exercise or with weight lifting. It is therefore another reason that he tells people who want to lose weight to really just focus on diet first.
