The limitations of Exercise. Exercise is a very important part of a healthy life style. Although exercise is encouraged, you do not need to exercise to attain results. Notice, I say “attain results.” You will attain quicker and more impressive results if you do exercise. I have gone to the gym since I was a kid and continue to this day. Exercise triggers the release of endorphins which improve mood, boosts the immune system, bring on a euphoric state, and burns calories. Doctors tell us that 30 minutes of walking a day will help us reach our weight goals. Really?? I fully support all forms of exercise. However, you could exercise two hours a day along with dieting and still not lose the weight. Why? It just does not burn enough calories. Eat lunch at a fast food establishment: a cheese burger, fries, and a soda (2,000 calories approx.). Okay. How long would you have to walk (at a brisk pace) to burn off these calories? 10 minutes? Half hour? One hour? Two hours? Not even close. The answer is 7 1/3 hours (assuming your weigh 160 lbs.).
