The latest episode of the BBC2 show “The Men Who Made Us Thin” recently aired. Episode 2 is all about exercise and weight loss. It is a very good show and I have found it very eye opening. I am amazed at how many people still exercise with the sole aim to lose weight and believe they can burn off the calories that they eat through exercise. It is ingrained in most peoples minds and challenging the concept seems insane. However losing weight is not as simple as calories in and calories out. If you think exercise alone will help you to lose weight you will fail. Exercise should be to benefit your health and you should not aim to use exercise alone to lose weight. In order to do that you need to combine a good diet with well structured training plan. You do not need to train like an athlete for hours and hours either.
Train Smart Not Hard!
