Study: Don't compensate your exercise with diet

Filed under:

Here's an interesting study I saw on Diet Blog -- people who exercise regularly and vigorously might still have trouble losing weight--or might even gain weight--because they may over-compensate for the weight they shed while working out. Sound familiar? Yeah, I admit, even I've been known to down an extra slice of pizza and rationalize by insisting that I must have burnt more than that at the gym. But that kind of thinking is really counter-productive. Don't you think?

Instead, try to think of it this way -- you did something good for yourself by going to the gym, so why not keep it up by eating well for the rest of the day?
