Bad news my friends, it seems like more and more scientific evidence shows that exercise won't make you lose weight. Yup. It's a sad state of affairs when you realize those hours of spinning (painful on the tush) and pole dancing (do I look like a slut in these lucite stilettos?) classes are not going to do sh*t.
Okay, being a little dramatic here. Exercise is certainly good for your health on many levels, helping you to look and feel good. But if you're interested in dropping some weight it turns out that DIET is a key ingredient to weight loss and "intense workout in the gym is actually less effective than gentle exercise in terms of weight loss". Eating a diet with an abundance of fruits and veggies, pumping up your whole grain game, cutting out sugar and just eating LESS will help increase weight loss.
