Reading the cover of Time Magazine several years ago I noticed a title: ‘The Myth of Exercise and Weight Loss’. Naturally it captured my attention and I read the article. It went on to explain that many people perform great exercise but quickly undo their good work with a coffee and cake or similar afterwards, effectively consuming near enough or more calories in 5 minutes than they burnt off in their entire bout of exercise. Remember that maintaining a healthy weight and level of fitness is not possible without the combination of consistently having a good exercise regime, a healthy diet and a strong mind.
