Fitness Myth: If You Exercise You
Can Eat Whatever You Want

Whether you exercise once a year or every day of the year, the theory that you can eat whatever you want and not gain fat is almost impossible. While some people have fast metabolisms and are able to eat whatever they want and not gain weight, many of us still fall into the category of you are what you eat.

If your goal is to have a slim, healthy, lean body, you should always watch what you eat. Be aware of what food you eat, how they make you feel and what the long and short-term effects of each meal may be. Yes, chocolate feels great once you've eaten it, but how do you feel once its been digested? Does the rapid drop of the high sugar rush make you feel sleepy and tired? Do you find yourself craving more chocolate? These are all factors that should be considered.

Remember diet and exercise go hand in hand to help you achieve optimal health. They are two components that rely on each other to help you achieve results and finding a balance between the two will help you achieve your perfect, healthy body. If your goal is to lose weight then you need to follow a low calorie, low fat diet and exercise the excess weight away. If your goal is to bulk up and gain some lean muscle mass, then you need to increase your calorie intake with the correct proportions of food and ensure that the food you eat will provide you with the required energy you need to tackle your hard-core training program.
