Do You Need To Exercise For Weight-Loss?

An article in the National Post asks that very question.

This first of a three part series on obesity, shares the view that although physical exercise has many health benefits (lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels, for example), an obese person could not possibly workout at a level that is needed to achieve weight-loss.

Furthermore, many people vastly overestimate the number of calories they burn during exercise and as as a result, eat more for their post-workout snack.

Contrasty, other researchers state that regular exercise does help reduce the visceral fat (found around the organs) that is dangerous at high levels. Exercise also targets abdominal fat and therefore, plays a key role in your weight loss strategy.
