Is diet incredibly important to fat loss, weight loss, and or a healthy body? Yes. Is working out essential to fat loss, weight loss, and a healthy body? Yes, completely. Both are absolutely necessary for a strong, healthy, attractive body; there’s no reason to diminish the extremely important role of exercise in order to highlight the value of nutrition.
Minimizing the value of workouts is an over simplified, overly dramatic response to the incorrect assumption that you can out-exercise a bad diet. To minimize the importance of exercise in the equation is to completely ignore the fact that working out has the capacity to raise your metabolism, strengthen your heart and your immune system, increase bone density, ward diabetes, cancer and heart disease, increase your lung capacity, and more. It would be irresponsible to downplay the role of exercise in both weight loss and health.
There is a big difference in weight loss via diet, and weight loss via diet and exercise; the later method is significantly healthier, and leads to a body that is competent and strong.
Diet-dominate weight loss also puts the focus on deprivation from food, instead of the growth and increase in strength and endurance that comes with exercise. Exercise increases self-efficacy and confidence, which in turn can increase the likelihood that a person makes smart food choices.
Our weight is a balancing act, and calories are part of that equation. Making good food choices allows us to feed our body with nutrition calories that make us stronger, leaner and healthier. Weight loss comes down to burning more calories than you take in. You can do that by reducing extra calories from food and beverages, and increasing calories burned through physical activity.
