If you’re one of these people who are trying to shed pounds by running on the treadmill or spending hours lifting weights, then you’re probably wasting your time. Exercise has a very negligible effect on your weight:
Simply put, it doesn’t work because our bodies adjust to more ‘calories out’ by making us hungrier. Plus, according to a recent study, people who are very physically active don’t necessarily burn more calories than others.
To be clear, I don’t recommend dropping your exercise regimen – it’s great for general health, fitness and wellbeing. But it’s almost useless for weight control.
So how do you lose weight? Check out our guide below.
