Hey, it’s Dr. Angela, America’s transformational weight loss doctor.
Today, we’re going to talk about why exercising less is actually good for you when it comes to losing weight.
Don’t get me wrong. Nutrition and exercise are both important when it comes to health, but here’s my insider tip. Nutrition gets the weight off, exercise keeps it off. Here are my top three reasons on why exercise is actually getting in your way, at least in the beginning when it comes to losing weight.
Reason number one.
If you’re a busy professional like me, you’re probably working long hours, you have deadlines, and you have a family to take care of. That’s a lot of emotional stress and if you start a diet and exercise program, you’re probably cutting calories and you’re exercising more. That’s physical stress. If you add physical stress on top of your emotional stress, your body’s just going to butt heads, and all it wants to do is be in survivor mode and store body fat.
Reason number two.
When we exercise more, we have the bad tendency to enter into the wrong thinking pattern that we should be able to eat more because we’re burning more calories. The problem is that you can’t out exercise a bad diet. Most people are overestimating how many calories they burn and underestimating how many calories they eat.
Finally, reason number three.
When we’re cutting calories and we’re exercising more, we are mistakenly not eating enough to support muscle repair and the rebuilding of your metabolism. Again, if you’re not feeding your body the right nutrition, all it wants to do is be in constant breakdown mode and again, it just wants to store body fat.
Now, these are just three reasons, but this is why I’m here. As a medical weight loss expert, I help you with the insider tips and understanding of how your body works.
