Exercise More Important Than Diet

 

If you are trying to lose weight, exercise is more effective than a restricted diet.

Studies done at Saint Louis University's Doisy College of Health Sciences show that dieters lose weight but they also lose muscle mass. People who exercise lose weight but maintain muscle mass. And muscle muss is important to help burn still more calories.
