Why Diet is Just as Important as Fitness

A common misconception among beginners in fitness is that you can workout and then eat whatever you want. Although we wish it could be that simple, this unfortunately is far from the truth. 

Your diet actually surpasses fitness in importance by a landslide at a 75 to 25 ratio. As many say, “Your body is made in the kitchen”! You can’t out-exercise a bad diet, and that is why you should also focus on nutrition! The traditional rule regarding calories simply means that for every kilogram of body weight, you will need to eat 30 calories. For example, if you are 132 pounds (60 kg), you need (30 X 60 =) 1800 calories per-day to maintain your weight. This rule of thumb follows the standard “calories in, calories out” method. 

Now this does not mean that you can't enjoy foods you love, but make sure your diet is mainly focused around health-centered items, with the occasional indulgence.
