I saw this interesting article the other day and think it’s worth sharing. Before you read the headline I think it’s important to remind you that headlines don’t tell the full story. So please read the full article if you can.

The fact is, we’re eating too much unhealthy stuff as a society and exercise alone can’t fix that. It’s not just sugar, but most of the processed foods we’re consuming are loaded with excess sugars. Also, exercise has plenty of health benefits even if it can’t counteract a poor diet, especially when it comes to weight loss.

So, check out this article: Exercise Can't Save Us: Our Sugar Intake Is The Real Culprit, Say Experts

We’ve always said you can’t out exercise a bad diet and there is real science to support this. Until we as a society start making real changes in our diets, we will continue to see health problems related to obesity and poor nutrition.

Hopefully you have taken charge of your diet and are making better choices and not just relying on an hour of working out each day.
