Eating too much, not too little exercise to blame for obesity

A new study suggests eating less, not more exercise is the way to lose weight. But does that mean we shouldn't exercise at all?

A new study suggests eating less, not more exercise is the way to lose weight. But does that mean we shouldn't exercise at all?

Eat too much and its unlikely you'll be able to do enough exercise to burn it off. That's the sobering finding of a new study by a World Health Organization obesity research center.


News agency Reuters reports that the research team studied the eating and exercise patterns of Americans over the past 30 years and concluded that their weight gain could be put down almost completely to over-eating. It found that declines in physical activity played only a "minor role”.

Fast food and soda companies like to blame declining exercise levels, not their products, for the obesity epidemic. This study shows up their argument for what it is - baseless blame-shifting of the worst kind.

But before you seize on this as the perfect excuse to ditch your exercise programs, consider this...

Exercise may not be as important for losing weight as restricting your calorie intake. But it still plays a part. And it's extremely important for cardio-vascular health.

Eat less to lose weight. Exercise more to help with the weight-loss and to keep your heart and lungs healthy.

I've gone on a diet
by: Anonymous

I've gone on a diet and am working on consuming less calories. The problem is, I'm a writer at do my essay for me , so I sit for long hours while I writing assignment. Usually I start to get fidgety, and I used to solve this by eating something (usually sugary), even if I wasn't all too hungry. Usually when I diet, I would smoke of , but I'm trying to cut down on that as well. Is there any alternative when I start to get cravings? I'm trying to avoid eating needlessly and smoking, especially when I'm stressed.

Activity may not be as essential for getting thinner as confining your calorie admission. Anyhow, despite everything it has impact. What's more, its greatly essential for cardio vascular wellbeing.

Sometimes it becomes difficult to understand the basic reason of obesity only by reading a book. I used to take help from online exercise videos and I have found your blog a perfect one among all. Here you have given a nice description of one point calibration, it will help me understand next lecture. I want to rush my essays on easy exercises to lose fat. Thanks

TOO TRUE, BUT KEEP MOVING!
by: Anonymous

You are so right. I wondered why I was not losing weight, even though I was eating healthily and exercising, and my friend (who is a doctor) told me to keep a food diary. I was plain eating TOO MUCH! You actually don't need to eat that much food when you're in your mid-forties and have a sedentary job. However, you cannot give up on exercise, just keep moving: you will feel the benefits even more as you get older. And it takes years off your age (if you don't overdo it).

Please don't stop exercise!
by: Maddie Klein

Great article, Alan. I'm so glad you warned your readers not to stop their exercise programs.

A new study seems to come out every day. The problem with them - even the good ones - is most people never read past the headlines.

But they interpret them as an excuse to do what they've been wanting to dom all along - like give up exercise!

As you correctly point out, exercise is so important for maintaining your weight loss and for cardio-vascular health.

And it also makes you feel great! So PLEASE don't stop. Your life could depend on it.
