The calories that people were losing while exercising were being gained back after the person exercised and had an intense craving for something to eat. These people were going to get french fries, muffins, burgers all the while making excuses that they can eat that because they just worked out.
So working out only works if 1) You can ignore the temptation which means you are miserable. 2) You work out sooooo much that what you eat doesn't matter.
Neither of these sound like something I would be into. I suppose eating healthy snacks after working out can help but I have a problem with saying no to things so saying no to a food I really want would be rough.
So my weight loss plan (however slow it might be) is going to be eating sensibly. I will NOT deprive myself of sweets totally or this will just make me binge on Pie Kitchen. I will make sure to get daily moderate exercise (thanks to Toby). I won't get my weight down fast but I know it will happen. And I will be healthy. Which is the most important.
I know a lot of people will disagree with the article stating their own results and that's fine. I think that each person is different and must approach their weight loss and health at their own pace and their own way.
