Eating v. Exercise: Food Always Wins

Uploaded: Feb 25, 2015

I like this chart from Dave Smith's "Make Your Body Work" blog.
There is also a crazy video on it that proves you can't exercise yourself away from the effects of a poor diet. They should post the chart at the entrance of every gym and zumba studio (I guess that wouldn't be too good for business.) This is in no way an indictment against exercising. I love exercising. I promote it as often as I can. Just a message that food-comes-first when making changes to your health, body, life. (Note: I know there is some after-exercise burning of calories that should be factored into the total number of calories you burn after various kinds of exercise, but they don't radically change the equation.)
