Thread: Is diet or exercise more important for weight loss?

  1. #25
    In my experience, exercising with too much intensity in P2 interferes with my losses. A daily walk at moderate pace is fine for me.

    Both of them are important for weight loss. Everyday excise can help you feel more energetic with an appropriate amount of food. Now I keep hiking more than 30 min every day to make good use of the energy I eat including fat.

    90% of weight loss comes from calorie reduction.

    I am currently in the middle of Phase (VLCD) and I am doing Reformer Pilates x3 per week as well as interval training 2x per week. This is my second round of HCG and I have incorporated exercise as a means to try and avoid loose skin.

    Once I get to phase 3 I fully intend on continuing to exercise, it is part of my long term maintaining plan. Although food is one factor I ended up gaining weight because I just wasn't active.

    Food wise, I stay very low carb and avoid sugar. When I combine these 2 factors I find the weight stays stable and I even lose more going to into P4. I think you can do 1 without the other.

    While exercise is beneficial, the key to losing weight is changing your diet. My personal opinion is that by far the easiest way to lose weight is by being in a calorie deficit, a combination of low-carb / high-healthy fats (like keto) and some form of intermittent fasting or time-limited meals.

    I am currently following a normal diet of only red meat, poultry, eggs, milk and some fish. I still drink coffee. Dairy products are fine if you have no intolerances, but they are very easy to snack on with cheese, cream, etc. I just love cheese and butter with fresh bread.
    From a health standpoint, I would try to avoid any processed foods, seed oils, sugar. Eat real food. Do not forget that the body always needs vitamins. In conditions of a calorie deficit, add vitamins and minerals to your diet (you can read which ones you need in the source)
    If you reduce your carbs, you will naturally find yourself less hungry. After that, most people can cut back on their meals and snacks and eat at shorter intervals each day.

    You can change body composition with exercise; and having more muscle, usually means your metabolism runs hotter, consuming more calories. But it's not a fast process.

    When I was younger and doing weights daily, I could increase my aerobic exercise and lose fat. But I no longer have that relatively high muscle mass composition, and exercise doesn't help me lose weight any longer.

    Weight loss is 90% due to reduced calories.
