In order to lose one pound, one needs to work off 3,500 calories which can take several days of exercise. When combined with cutting calories, one can lose weight faster. Unfortunately, one cannot compare dieting with exercising to determine which is the best method because each plays a different role in the overall topic. So lets look into it in more detail.
First, one of the fastest ways to lose weight is to cut back on calories because this is effective about 70 percent of the time. When you consume fewer, you are more likely to lose weight but you see people recommending one should both cut calories, and exercise. Exercise does play a part in helping to increase the number of calories your body will burn. Furthermore, the little bit of extra weight that is lost is composed of fat rather than muscle.
One reason exercise is not considered as effective for losing weight is that it is possible to eat more calories than you work off during a session. In addition, it is harder to burn the number of calories strictly through exercise. For instance, if you want to burn off 500 calories, you'd have to walk a couple hours every day at a speed of about 3.5 miles per hour.
In addition, exercising will help strengthen bones and muscles so you stay fitter, maintain balance, and improve your ability to do day to day activities. Furthermore, exercising helps your body burn fat by turning into fuel so you lose fat. As a person becomes fitter, their body burns fat more efficiently and are able to use it as a fuel source.
So it is possible to lose weight by only cutting calories. However, it is better to combine it with exercise so your body stays in better physical shape, increases bone density, builds muscles, and gets rid of fat. We have our answer, not you really don't need exercise to lose weight but if you want your body to stay in better shape, then combine dieting with exercise. Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear. Have a great day.
