Why Abs are Made in the Kitchen ?
When it comes to fat loss, you’ll often hear the saying “abs are made in the kitchen”, or fat loss is “70% diet, 30% exercise”. The bottom line: the most important component of weight loss is diet.
What’s the main reason that diet and nutritional programming is more important than exercise for fat loss? It’s simply more effective. For the average person to achieve weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week, you need a calorie deficit of 500-1,000 calories per day. You can achieve this calorie deficit by reducing calorie intake, increasing physical activity, or both. The truth is, it’s much easier to cut calories than to burn them off. For the average 150 lb person, to burn off 500 calories with physical activity you would need to do:
• Stairmaster – 1 hour
• Jump rope – 1 hour
• Moderate jog – 75 minutes
• Moderate cycling – 75 minutes
But even with physical activity, if your diet isn’t in check, you won’t lose fat. You can’t out-exercise a poor diet. While exercise is critical for good health, it needs to be combined with proper nutritional programming for weight loss.
