Most people know that exercise and a healthy diet are essential for optimal health. All major health organizations recommend changing both your diet and exercise routine to promote weight loss.

Commitment to the best exercise program is not enough, as you still need to pay attention to your diet if you want to optimize your progress. Research has shown that the ideal program for long-term weight loss includes a moderate reduction in calorie intake and a good exercise program.

While many people know that a healthy diet is critical for weight loss, some go too far and say that diet is the only thing that matters.

However, it’s important to realize that exercise helps too.

One scientific review including over 400 people examined the weight loss effects of diet plus exercise and compared them to the effects of dietary changes alone.

The researchers found that the combination of dietary changes plus exercise led to 20% greater weight loss than dietary changes alone after a period of 10 weeks to one year.

What’s more, the programs that included diet plus exercise were also more effective than diet alone at maintaining the weight loss after another year.

Brief Summary:

A healthy diet and good exercise program are two of the most critical factors for long-term weight loss success. Weight loss programs that include exercise can lead to greater weight loss and better weight maintenance over time.
