How Nutrition And Exercise Work Together

Without exercise, your body won’t burn the calories of the food you eat, and without food, you won’t have the energy you need for exercise. Good nutrition combined with regular workouts helps boost weight management, fitness, and overall well-being.

The Research

There is scientific evidence that shows combining both nutrition and workouts produces greater benefits than focusing on one or the other. 

In fact, a published study reveals that hitting the gym won’t counteract the consequences of consuming fat-laden foods, and consuming kale can’t cancel out sedentary habits. 

Results of this research demonstrated that even people with the most nutritious diets saw considerably worse outcomes without some form of regular fitness regimen. The investigators concluded that you cannot rely solely on your meal plan or workout alone to maintain good health.

Nutrition Plan: You Are What You Eat

Many nutritionists encourage us to think of food as fuel. What we eat impacts much of our ability to function, from our physical to mental well-being. Incorporating nutritious foods into your diet and eating a balance of carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats positively affects your everyday life and fitness performance.

Following a fad diet or social media trend can be tempting. However, these meal plans are often too restrictive, and results are temporary. Eating less may help you lose weight in the short term, but if your body isn’t getting the nutrients it needs, it won’t be easy to stick to your nutrition plan for very long.

Plus, your training will not be as effective without adequate calories and energy. Properly fueling your body helps you perform both during workouts and throughout your typical day.

Quite simply, finding and implementing sustainable and enjoyable nutrition habits is essential to reaching your goals. 

Training and Working Out

Have you ever thought, “I exercise, so I can eat anything I want,” or “I eat healthy, so I don’t need to exercise“?

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Healthy eating isn’t as beneficial without regular exercise, no matter which nutrition plan you follow.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) emphasizes that regular physical activity, like working out, is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Being consistently active helps you maintain (or lose) weight, boost energy, improve your mood, and feel better overall. Training workouts can also benefit your heart, joints, your confidence, self-esteem, and much more.

However, not all workouts and nutrition plans are equal.
