Is it important to exercise to lose weight? | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

Is exercising easier for you than managing your eating, but it isn’t producing the results you want? 

Do you exercise like crazy to make up for overeating? 

Do you hate exercise and avoid it like the plague? 

Unless you’re training for a half-marathon or something else intense, exercise alone isn’t going to get you to your weight goals. 

Are you surprised to hear that? While you can lose some weight through exercise, it doesn’t make up for bad eating habits. 

It takes a lot less time to eat less than to exercise more!  

But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t exercise. 

To be truly healthy, exercise is essential, regardless of how much you weigh. 

But if you expect it to make you thin, you likely will be disappointed. 

Tune in below and learn the role of exercise in weight loss, some benefits of exercise you may not know about, and how to fit it into a healthy lifestyle.

Weight Loss for Foodies is now available as an online, self-paced course without coaching. In it, you’ll go beyond what I talk about in the podcast, and can download worksheets to practice what you’re learning and guided audio practices. The cost is less than half of the price of the coaching program. Learn more and sign up below.

About the author 

Shari Broder

My mission is to help foodies ditch dieting and lose the weight for good. Discover what is really causing your weight issues (it isn't that you love food!), and learn how to stop obsessing about food and make peace with food and eating. Get off the diet hamster wheel once and for all and learn to eat consciously, stop emotional eating and enjoy the foods you love while permanently losing your desire to overeat.

  1. It's so much more difficult being a recipe developer (especially baked goods) without a house full of kids all the time to eat what I bake as soon as it comes out of the oven.
    And I exercised so much more with kids too, I used to push a double stroller 4 miles a day. Once everything changed, everything changed,

  2. I find eating less always helps in losing weight. In fact, exercising too much revs my appetite and I crave more sugar and carbs to make up the energy. Hence, I end up eating more and gaining weight! For me, the best option is light exercise everyday (walking and yoga) and watching the calories.
