Fitness Myths! Working Out = Weight Maintenance

FITNESS MYTH! “If you work out an hour a day you can maintain your weight”

TRUTH: You can OUT EAT your workouts. Even if you’re training an hour (or more) each day, if  you consistently consume more than you burn, you may not lose weight at all and probably add a few pounds to the scale. To manage your weight the key is to keep a neutral energy balance by consuming the calories that you need without consuming extra, which will be stored as fat on the body. A registered dietitian can help make a program to get you at your correct energy balance (or deficit if weight loss is your goal) without sacrificing  nutritional needs. Your physique is 80% DIET and 20% TRAINING. Match your workout efforts with a clean eating plan to make results HAPPEN in the gym!
