You've heard it time and again -- to lose weight, you need to exercise and watch your diet, so that your calories burned exceed your calories consumed.
But if you've been working out and your extra pounds won't budge, you may be wondering why that seemingly simple strategy isn't working.
Don't hang up your sneakers and throw in the towel. If you do, you're going to miss out on the biggest weight perk exercise has to offer, experts tell Web MD
Here is the #1 point from the Web MD Site
1. Exercise is only part of the weight loss story.
On the couch or in the gym, there's no getting around your tab of calories in and calories out.
Robert Kushner, MD, is a professor of medicine at Northwestern University and clinical director of the Northwestern Comprehensive Center on Obesity. He says the obese patients he treats often tell him they're not seeing the results they want from exercise.
"They typically will say, 'I have been working out three days a week for 30 minutes for the past three months and I have lost 2 pounds; there's something wrong with my metabolism,'" Kushner tells Web MD.
Kushner says he tells patients that exercise is very good for them, but for weight loss, he emphasizes a healthy diet in the beginning.
It's easier to cut 1,000 calories from a bloated diet than to burn off 1,000 calories through exercise, Hill notes. "But there are many, many studies that show that exercise is associated with weight loss when done in enough volume and consistently," Hill says. "It depends how much you do."
