Weight Loss: is it Really 80% Diet & 20% Exercise?
k so basically everytime i google about exercising, diet, or weight loss in general, what i get is:"diet helps lose weight more than exercising", or "why is dieting more beneficial for weight loss"...
i thought exercising was more beneficial, guess i ws wrong..
i'll show u guys in this article the meaning of the 80/20 ratio, with a simple weight loss-calorie plan.
Here's y our Meals r So Important.
The key to weight loss is achieving a negative energy balance, or taking in less calories than you burn, says Albert Matheny. To shed a single pound, you need to achieve a 3,500 calorie deficit. So if you're following the 80/20 ratio, you'd want to burn approximately 750 calories through exercise and cut an additional 3,000 calories through dieting, says Matheny. That’s a total deficit of 3,750 calories for the week.
Here's what that might look like:
The reason dieting is so much more effective than exercise is because it takes a ton of activity to create a 500 to 700 calorie deficit through working out. Essentially, you’d need to run seven to 10 miles a day to lose one pound a week, says Holly Lofton. The average person can’t keep this up, especially without increasing their caloric intake.
“I see this in patients all the time,” says Lofton. “People think, ‘If I run the marathon or start going to boot camp, I’m going to lose weight’ but they’re often disappointed when they don’t.”
You don't need to hit an exact 80/20 ratio to shed pounds, but it's important for people to focus primarily on diet when they're trying to lose weight. "You can lose weight without exercise, but you cannot lose weight if your nutrition counteracts your energy expenditure through exercise," Matheny says.
