Top 10 FAQs about Exercise and Weight Loss

Can I eat whatever I want if I workout every day, and still lose weight?

One can't consider this question without considering age, level of daily physical activity besides workouts, and what you mean by 'whatever.' When one is younger, under 30 years of age, exercise and activity play a dominant role in deciding weight control. Here, one can eat a lot and get away with it as the body retains some basic muscle tone from childhood years. Even this is subject to how fit an individual was as a child.

As you cross over to your 30s and 40s, however, it becomes a different story. One's weight loss or gain is then controlled more by diet and less by workouts. 70-30 is a safe split, where diet stands for 70, and exercise for 30. Therefore, it is important to focus on healthy food and portion control.
