Exercise Vs. Nutrition: What Matters Most

DSC04412

Studies show that weight loss is generally 80% nutrition and only 20% exercise. However, without exercise only a portion of your weight loss is from fat since you will also strip away muscle and bone density. Since working out stimulates muscle growth, losing weight by adding exercise means you are burning mostly fat which is important for your metabolism.

So How Important is Nutrition?

Experts agree that you will see the biggest weight loss results when you change your eating habits. That is why all our teens receive a personalized nutrition plan and are trained to use MyPlate http://www.choosemyplate.gov/MyPlate. The secret to losing weight is not about dieting or counting calories but learning proper balance and portion control.

You also want to set your family for success by planning your weekly meals together and cleaning out your cabinets of all those unhealthy “trigger foods”. Keeping a stash of sweets in your cabinet will only tempt you to give into your cravings! And studies show that relying on willpower alone to lose weight adds stress and is not as effective as weekly planning.
