Diet, Not Exercise, Key to Weight-loss

Saturday 18th September 2010

New research shows that diet, and not exercise, may be the key to weight loss following reports that Brits are not less active than they were 20 years ago. Instead, scientists at the University of Aberdeen claim that people are eating more without increasing activity levels to level their heightened calorie intake.

The findings repudiate claims that today's society has become lazier. In fact, John Speakman of the University of Aberdeen has explained that today's society has embraced trends that would not have occurred in earlier years – for instance purchasing and using home fitness equipment.

Whilst the International Journal of Obesity has also put paid to other common misconceptions, by reporting that the decrease in the number of children not walking to school daily has no direct link on rising obesity levels.

Experts hope that the findings will encourage people to better improve their diets, whilst also exercising as part of a healthy lifestyle.
