Exercise is very important but how you fuel your body should be 75% of your plan

By Shannon Pierce

Your spending countless hours exercising. Your taking your supplements, your even drinking some protein shakes here and there. Your doing everything your personal trainer recommends or your workout regimen entails. So, where is the muscle definition? Where is that weight loss? Where is the six-pack?

 

There is one huge reason your not seeing your results, and it’s not rocket science.  Clearly, exercise aids in fat loss and muscle gain, however, what you are doing in the kitchen, at your lunch break, or in the drive-through window plays an even bigger role in your success. Fat loss is based on 75% diet and 25% exercise.

 

One of the biggest questions Louisiana health and fitness trainer Fred Zoller gets asked is, “On the days I exercise, do I get to consume more calories?” Zoller answers with a big whopping, “NO!” He explains, those days are meant to provide you a calorie deficit and are the days that you are making the most progress. Use that calorie deficit to your advantage.

 

You can lift all day, run a marathon, swim for miles, however, if you have more calories going in your mouth than you are expending, your progress is at a stand still. Your progress, muscle tone, and six-pack really start to shine through when you lose that layer of fat that is hiding them.

 

One way to ensure that you have a calorie deficit is the convenient smart phone applications that you can download for free.  “Lose-it” and “My Fitness Pal” are genius apps for ensuring you burn more than you consume. Even on the days that you could not work out or were just plain too tired, do not worry! All you need to do is stay in your daily calorie allotment and you are still on your way towards success. You can just watch the pounds fall off as you log your calories and exercise. You can enter in weight loss goals and fitness goals by a certain date, and it will create your calorie allotment for you. When you think about it, programs such as Weight Watchers have been built off of this principle, turning the big numbers and time-consuming calorie counting into a “point system.”

 

By no means should exercise by thrown to the wayside. In fact, it is extremely important for so many health reasons. Just don’t undo all your hard work by devouring chocolate cake, well, unless you saved room for it in your daily calorie allotment.
