Does Exercise Really Help You Lose Weight Faster?
A surprisingly large amount of people asks me this, “Does exercise really help you lose weight faster?”. And surprisingly, the answer is not black or white, it’s not “yes or no”, it’s not really definitive because the truth is exercise does help you lose weight as long as your body doesn’t physiologically manipulate you into eating more food to compensate.
This might seem counterintuitive, but what the body has is something known as a set point, think of it as a balancing system, let’s say you decide to restrict heat to one side of the room, the laws of physics will cause the heat to disperse to the cold side of the room. When you decide to withdraw calories by exercise, your body will force you to eat more in order to compensate for the loss of calories. This causes you to sometimes even gain weight as the calories lost get overcompensated for by eating even more food than usual. Try forskolin to compensate for this, always read the forskolin review before buying however.
This is why it’s required for you to calorie count and not let your body fool you into consuming more calories than are needed, maintain a 20-30% calorie deficit to keep your body burning into its glycogen reserves (AKA fat), you may even try to restrict carbs and increase protein count. Decreasing carbs and pumping up protein can significantly help your overall weight loss regiment. Decreasing carbs has the effect of reducing insulin, creating a low insulin environment and combining it with a calorie deficit with cause weight loss. Keep in mind that weight loss is a gradual process and having a weight loss velocity of over 3 pounds a week may mean that you are not losing mostly fat but also fat and muscle, which is not desirable.
