Exercise Alone Doesn’t Help You In Weight Loss

Exercise alone doesn’t help you in weight loss because it will take a different way when it is not on the wheel, suggests an interesting new study.


Researchers have found that more exercising does not necessarily burn many additional calories. However, previous studies have shown after examining the link between the exercise and weight that exercise in not only the key to drop pounds.

The researchers’ team of the latest study is new to challenge obesity prevention strategies that suggest working out more burns more calories.

They tracked 332 adults drawn from five countries across Africa and North America and calculated their daily energy expenditure and activity levels over the course of a week. They found that people with the lower half of the physical activity spectrum had weak daily energy expenditure, while people with moderate activity levels had higher daily energy expenditures.

In the UK, a popular advice is 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week helps to maintain a healthy weigh. The best physical activity reduces the risk of various diseases like coronary heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and a range of cancers, as well as symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Dr. Asseem Malhotra, the cardiologist adviser to the National Obesity Forum, said, “We know exercising in the right way has many health benefits but weight loss isn’t one of them.” “We need to disassociate obesity with exercise altogether. If we’re going to combat obesity, it’s going to happen purely from changing the food environment,” Dr. Malhotra added.
