Exercise vs. Nutrition: Which is More Important?

Whether your goal is to lose weight, tone up, maintain your weight, or just try to be healthier overall, both exercise and nutrition play a role. However, the roles they each play are not exactly equal!

We all know (or have been) the person who works out at the gym constantly, but doesn’t see much, if any, results.  This is because when it comes to healthy living, and especially if you are trying to attain or maintain a healthy weight, about 75% comes from proper nutrition, and only 25% comes from exercise. So when a person works really hard at the gym, but then goes home and does not eat clean, that person will not see the results that he or she could really attain.

Now, we do not want you to think that exercise is useless, because it definitely is not! We understand and appreciate that for many, exercising is the catalyst that gets people to start thinking about their nutrition.  But you definitely want to think about what it is that you are really putting into your body.  If you were to only eat clean and not workout, you would actually be able to maintain a healthier weight and lifestyle compared to someone who only worked out!

Since we ourselves promote an overall healthy lifestyle, we of course believe that you should complement your nutrition with exercise (both cardio and weight resistance trainings), because when you eat clean, you are able to reveal all of the hard work that you have been putting in through exercise!
