Eating Wrong, No Matter How Much Exercise You Do, You Can't Lose Weight

Do you know anyone like this around you? They exercise tirelessly but can't seem to lose weight.

Many people walk or run near their homes, go swimming or engage in aerobic exercises at the gym every day. However, they still can't lose weight, and their body shape doesn't improve. There are also some people who manage to lose weight after intense training for a month or two, such as running or following fitness DVDs, but soon after, they experience the tragic rebound of weight—this situation is quite common.

It is widely known that when trying to lose weight, you must burn more calories than you consume.

For those who exercise but still can't lose weight, it's because the exercises they do don't burn the calories they consume.

You might wonder: I exercise so vigorously, so why am I not getting thinner?!

It is this obvious trap that causes our weight loss plans to fail repeatedly.

There is only one reason why you can't lose weight—you eat too much.

However, even though everyone understands this principle, why is it still challenging to control oneself?

There are many reasons that lead to failed weight loss, but the primary reason is that we often ignore the fact that we eat too much.

Very few people can clearly know how many calories and nutrients are in the food they eat every day.

Most of the time, we don't care about what exactly is in the food we eat. We just eat whatever we feel like eating and eat as much as we want.

Additionally, the media often promotes some foods that are beneficial to health. When we eat these foods, we suddenly feel like we have become healthier, without thinking about how many excess calories we have consumed.

In this way, we don't pay attention to what we eat and delude ourselves (or want to believe) that as long as we burn off the calories we consume through exercise, everything will be fine.

Unfortunately, energy metabolism is not as simple as a straightforward calculation.

In reality, consuming 500 calories (1 calorie ≈ 4.18 joules) doesn't necessarily mean that you can completely burn off all those calories by doing an activity that consumes 500 calories.

The calorie values (calories) listed in this book are not entirely precise, but considering that many people have little knowledge about energy concepts beyond "calories," using calories as a reference is still meaningful.

However, it is essential to note that relying too much on calories can lead us into another misunderstanding.

As I have emphasized repeatedly: if you become overweight, most likely your dietary habits are the problem.

Therefore, if you want to solve the problem of gaining weight through exercise alone, not only will it not be effective, but it will often have the opposite effect.

Once again, I want to emphasize that the primary reason for weight gain lies in problematic dietary habits, and it is virtually impossible to rely solely on exercise to burn off the calories consumed.
