It is very true that “exercise alone is not enough” to change your body.
In fact, exercise alone is hardly anything. For instance, one study demonstrated that you can exercise as hard as possible (say, 5 times a week for 16 weeks with an Olympic Conditioning coach), but will only see marginal results (about 1.5 measly lbs of fat loss) if you don’t also change the way you eat!
Think of it this way…if you were building a house for yourself to live in, would you build it out of popsicle sticks and glue? Or would you use bricks and mortar?
Not all Calories are Created Equal
Clearly, you wouldn’t want to waste your time building a house that isn’t going to survive the elements! So then why would you ever waste your time building your body with crappy materials that aren’t going to last!?
I mean, it takes the same amount of time to eat a piece of whole grain bread as it does to eat a piece of white bread. Both breads would work in the toaster, or as part of your sandwich. Both contain relatively the same amount of calories. Both are a source of carbs. Both ultimately end up as glucose in your bloodstream.
But, the white bread delivers only a rapid dose of sugar (and a bad insulin crash) that will be stored as fat in your problem areas, the whole grain variety will give you sustained energy throughout the day, a plethora of metabolism-boosting vitamins and minerals, and a healthy dose of fiber.
This means that less insulin is released, you have more energy, and less fat is stored on your body!
But choosing the right kind of bread is just the beginning…
