Well... is it diet or is it exercise?
We believe it is both, but we truly emphasize diet. Nutrition is vital to reaching your goals whether it is losing weight or gaining muscle.
"Exercise requires time and consistent effort, and it takes longer to see its results, said Stanforth. It also burns far fewer calories — and takes more time — than most people think. Alternatively, there are several high-sugar, high-fat, high-calorie foods that we can cut from our diets to see a pretty big change in our waistline, sometimes in a fairly short time period."
Staying on the ever-growing topic of genetics and the fundamental building blocks of our bodies -- what if exercise could be proven to have such an impact on our bodies to the point of changing our DNA?
I thoroughly enjoyed this article from the NYT on just that.
Take a look for yourself.
