Exercise Alone Won’t Rid You of the Weight

Exercise Alone Won’t Rid You of the Weight

Exercise has become commonly referred to as the method for shedding those extra pounds, and most people assume exercise is the answer to real weight loss and the counter action to over eating. Of course there is no doubt about it: exercise is extremely important for a myriad of reasons from improving bone health and density to staving off depression to boosting endorphins and keeping us flexible and toned. All of these benefits are reason enough to continue a regular exercise regime, but exercise may not be the end-all-be-all answer to ridding yourself of those extra pounds that you initially thought.

All of us who see the almost weekly magazine covers showcasing the latest celebrity or average-Joe turned fitness coach who have lost impressive amounts of weight and claim their new exercise routines are mainly to thank. These claims may be more than a little misleading, especially considering the majority of people who strive to take on a legitimate exercise program may still find that an hour of strenuous cardio activity burns little more than 300 calories or so; calories that are far too easy to consume through an extra bottle of Gatorade or a post-gym granola bar. In fact, many people who exercise regularly will find not only a boost in their stamina and endurance, but in their appetites as well, causing them to easily make up for any calorie deficit they intended to achieve.

This isn’t to say that regular exercise doesn’t play a vital role in one’s overall health and fitness, and even a substantial component to losing weight overall, but proper diet is far more essential to achieving long term results than a 45 minute session at the gym three times a week could provide. A healthy diet with an emphasis on monitoring calorie intake is essential in achieving true weight loss.

Of course, millions of people who make every conscious effort to consistently exercise and eat well will still struggle with losing weight long-term and are especially frustrated to discover that even if they do, there are still areas of their body that just don’t seem to respond well to their devoted efforts. In such cases, a little intervention through cosmetic procedures such as modern liposuction techniques can effectively rid the body of fat cells permanently where proper diet and exercise just isn’t doing the trick. Current liposuction methods can be performed in a much less invasive manner than traditional liposuction procedures and patients can enjoy the final fat loss in areas of their body that just weren’t responding no matter what they do.
