Does exercise alone help you lose weight?

Before and after

Before and after

Traditionally, we were told “diet and exercise” for weight loss. Overtime, the fitness industry made it look like it is the exercise that is the most important part in helping one lose weight! However, what does the research show on the role of exercise in helping one lose weight.

Exercise Alone Is Useless For Weight Loss – Time Magazine
“In general, for weight loss, exercise is pretty useless,” says Eric Ravussin, chair in diabetes and metabolism at Louisiana State University and a prominent exercise researcher. Many recent studies have found that exercise isn’t as important in helping people lose weight as you hear so regularly in gym advertisements or on shows like The Biggest Loser.

According to Dr Prab Tumpati, founder of W’eight’MD, exercise can help lose weight only in combination with a Very Low Calorie Diet(VLCD) or Low Calorie Diet(LCD) which might need careful medical supervision especially for VLCD.

The reason exercise alone does not work for weight loss is because exercise stimulated appetite and also helps build heavier muscle, two factors that compensate for any weight loss through burning of calories. This is well established fact now that it is a board examination question in Obesity Medicine, according to Dr. Tumpati.

This is what Bally’s Fitness Says on their website: “You might not expect to hear this from the nation’s leading exercise and fitness company, but here’s the hard truth: When it comes to losing weight, exercise alone usually doesn’t cut it. Most people need a COMBINED approach that addresses both diet and exercise.”
