We already know that one of exercise’s unintended consequences can be extra calories: “Exercise can increase the body’s production of appetite hormones, making some people feel ravenous after even a light workout and prone to consume more calories than they expended,” explains The New York Times. In other words: What better way to celebrate that. “If you just try to eat less and exercise more, most people will lose that battle. Metabolism wins,” says Ludwig. “Simply looking at calories is misguided at best and potentially harmful because it. Think of your next exercise workout as a “fun run” or as a well-deserved break, and you’ll eat less afterward.

Think of it as exercise or as a workout and you’ll later eat more dessert and snacks. If you want to lose weight you have to eat less and move more. Those are really your only two options.

You don’t necessarily have to count calories or start a formal exercise program, but your total calorie intake has to go down, and your movement levels have to go up. According to President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, less than 5 percent of adults actually participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day.We may start the year with positive fitness goals, which we eagerly follow up by heading to the gym and nibbling on celery sticks.However, we can often find our well-intentioned plans unraveling after just a few weeks. If you want to lose weight or get in shape, following a nutritious eating plan and a regular exercise program are the most effective ways to achieve your goals. Although it may be tempting to severely restrict your calories to help you lose weight faster, not eating can cause a variety of problems when you’re exercising according to TeensHealth.

Instead, you should focus on eating the complex carbs found in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and beans. Whole grains have more staying power. Want to add some bounce and fun to your fitness routine?

Then urban rebounding may be for you! The low-impact cardiovascular workout uses a small trampoline to challenge your heart and your lower body in ways a treadmill or elliptical never could. Classes are offered at various gyms nationwide, so head to Google to find one near you. 1. Just eat to the style that suits you.

If you wnat to eat more on exercise days and less on others and you are eating an average of 1200+, then do that. 2. If you want to eat the same regardless of exercise then do TDEE. All you need to look at is your aggregate deficit over a period.

Instead, try following the 80/20 principle every day: 80 percent of what you eat should be healthy, nutritious, filling foods, but 20 percent of your calories can come from less-healthy foods that.

  • For me it’s 80% discipline/habit, 15% reward, 5% motivation/willpower. I don’t run and exercise because I will always love doing it, I just do it like it is a routine thing that needs to be done (and hey, you get to have a nice body if you keep doing it.) I reward myself every so often by allowing myself some of my favorite foods (both healthy and unhealthy.) On days I don’t feel like I can push hard enough, I do light exercises for at least 30 minutes. On great days, I run and walk for an hour.

    Treat exercise like you do it everyday, if you can’t run because it is raining outside or it is 90 degrees+ outside, do light exercise or do exercises indoors that don’t require running, if your gym is closed because of the pandemic, look up ways to do bodyweight exercises until you get a home gym (if you can afford it or unless you aren’t allowed to.)

    Every so often, reward yourself for you hard work.

    Motivation and willpower will only take you so far. Maybe your goal is to run the 5k, what about after that? Will you just stop because your goal is accomplished?

    A person that does the same thing every day, whether he likes it or not, no matter the day of the week will go further than a person that only runs if he/she is motivated to run for the day.

  • You guys lost me with your advice to stay away from negative people. I hear this a lot on social media and from people in general. Very bad advice, it is a sign of a very weak personality. Negative people need our encouragement, in fact, they need it more than anyone. If we remove ourselves from negative people we pretty much leave them in a secluded place devoid of encouragement (a living hell so to speak). A well-adjusted person will not ignore a negative person but will instead listen to them and lead them to a more faithful and positive outlook on their life and on the world around them. We all need to stop being weak and afraid that negative people will bring us down. The truly strong and faithful people will survive negative communication and encourage those people who are plagued by it to become happier and more pleasant people. Don’t run from the challenge of communicating with negative people embrace it and share your joy with them for this is what the world really needs. Your thoughts…

  • Hi Natacha! I’m a high level competitive dancer and after completing at the world championships I found out I had to take minimum 4 months off training to heal the bones in my feet. After training so intensely for the past decade my bones have started to deteriorate. Obviously I want to get back to training and healthy ASAP but I have been putting a lot of stress and pressure on myself how I can possibly keep up with and continue to beat my competitors after not training for a third of the year. The information you said about muscle memory and multi nuclei really helped me feel better about getting back to training with a positive mindset. You have awesome, original videos, keep up the amazing work!!!! Thanks girl <3

  • hi natacha! thanks for sharing <3 ; i have a question.....is it possible to build muscle with just body weight exercises? thanks so much!!!

  • Don’t forget when you get home, there are dirty dishes in the sink from others in your household. There goes another glass into the bucket.

  • Hi guys! I have a 23 yr old son 6’3 220 lbs mechanic on his feet all day with back pain. Hes as stubborn as tall. What are a few things he could start doing at home every day to make his back feel better and core stronger without gym. Hes very Covid-19 careful. Thanks!

  • I am a HUGE fan of you both but would you please not refer to any politicians in your show? It adds stress when politicians are mentioned. ��

  • I would argue that cardio burns calories, anaerobic workouts or weight lifting builds muscles to burn calories later, but to say that exercise does not burn fat is wrong… aerobic workouts use the calories available and then goes into the fat calories… not just build muscles to burn fat later.

  • I quit snacks, fast food, chocolate and soft drinks c o m p l e t e l y this year and did very light exercise and lost over 20% of my body weight

    Best. Choice. Ever.

  • I use 5lb dumbbells with the intention of building my triceps and shoulders. I don’t give a shit about what others think of me in a gym.
    There’s no waste of any reps or sets whatsoever because Jeff taught me well.
    Really true about confident that Jeff is talking. If you have confident in a gym, you’ll have it in your life too.

  • I know this video is old but I am on a two week break for a small calf injury and today is the day I get to run again and this made me feel good about my break:)


  • Well-made but not particularly accurate and awfully perceptive.
    “Exercise makes you look better” is a fat-phobic opinion and not a fact.
    If exercise is paired with a caloric deficit does in fact cause weight loss, especially with regards to aerobic exercises. One generally only sees muscle gain with the integration of weights, not just the broad term coined “exercise”

  • This was very good. I myself need energy! Its a great idea to work out first thing in the morning, great tip. I have left the news alone, as well as the email. Paying bills can also be draining, and with a small business, it’s not easy either. I love your video’s.

  • I got my acne when I started working out.. Now after 2 weeks gym break I have no pimple and it’s not about cleaning my skin it’s hormonal acne. I get it on jawline. I read that it might be cortisol and testosterone levels that goes up when training so can you make a video about that?

  • Any curvy people out there, we all love love you. Any skinny people, love you to. And everyone in-between you’re perfect to.
    Steve out!

  • me: does a spring sport at school
    school: alright folks, 2 MONTH BREAK
    me: lazy for 2 weeks

  • This video is what we need in this stupid Corona Virus Pandemic right now lol! Anyone watching this again and getting the relief that you’re going to be ok while the gym is closed?

  • One thing I always notice when I start working out is a massive increase in confidence, just feeling fit and more productive has a great effect on self esteem

  • I love your experimental videos and that you actually research the info. But glycogen mostly stored in the liver and only about 2 % in the skeletal muscles. And the total amount of glycogen is about 350-400g in the whole body.

    Narrator: mentions “The Power of Habit,” by Charles Duhigg.
    Me: cranes neck to look at a copy of the book on my table and stares at it suspiciously.

  • A Nap?!!! What world do you live in where you’re freed up to take a nap and watch the news in the same 24 hour period! Clearly someone else is cooking your dinner for you after their eight hour job. Anyone who has dependent children of any age has been up since 5 AM and wont hit the pillow till 10 PM. And those friends who excercise?….We avoid them and their oh so organized life! Not everyone works at a desk answering emails, why do you think we need physio?! I was excited about the “systems” concept but this didn’t enter in to the real world enough to be helpful.

  • I use to work out regularly but starting 2016 I’ve become a couch potato and ballooned into 140lb, overweight according to my BMI. I started working out again and eating cleaner the last week of May and now I’m at 125lb. It’s always tough at the beginning but don’t give up. Also don’t rush the process. I work out an average 30min 5 days a week and I occasionally eat my treats but within my 1200 calorie intake per day. I find this is the most sustainable for me to stick with. Don’t restrict or over fatigue yourselves too much that makes it easier to give up.

  • Hey Bob & Brad! Really good advice. There is one more reason to watch your videos. You are now also the ‘most famous mental therapists on the internet ‘
    In my opinion of course. ��������

  • The only reason people would pair food with bad events is habit they learned in life to eat or drink when feeling stressed people could just as well learn to pair bad events with good things.

  • bro i did this and gained back all the weight that i’ve lost because i wasn’t watching my diet BUT on the bright side, i got my period back after three months!

  • I have a problem with my auricularis anterior muscle (right in front of the ear) below the temporalis muscle its a swelling sensation with pressure and my jaw is always tight never relaxed is there any healing methods to this?

  • I would really love to get into the gym and start weight training but I just have no idea where to start and how to structure my workouts (I’ve never done weight training before) I have a bad relationship with food so I think with a good workout routine I’ll be able to feel comfortable eating more food but I’m just stuck rn:/ I want to be thinner but have lean muscle, just not bulky. Your body is exactly what I want to look like. Very beautiful and feminine yet you still look very fit and muscular and strong. Exactly what I want

  • I mostly, completely agree with you! Especially when adrenals are stressed it can slow or hault weight loss-and anything over mild to sometimes moderate exercise stresses them further. Weight is lost in the kitchen/at the table-not at the gym! In the past I have only ever lost weight watching what I eat-no amount of exercise ever solely led to shedding any. However, if someone has metabolic resistance and/or blood sugar issues from a sedentary lifestyle or other reasons (again like adrenal fatigue), their appetite can be out of control-especially for simple carbs. A bit of daily mild exercise-or sometimes moderate depending on health-can help regulate this blood sugar imbalance & curb those abnormally strong cravings & appetite-which can then help us lose weight since we can control our selves much better. I didn’t know any of this until I developed adrenal fatigue & couldn’t lose any weight (I only have vanity pounds to lose-about 10 to 20), and researched all of this. Love your channel!

  • Well, for most people it would be a huge step to exercise at all. They won’t achieve a contest physique, but they do something for their health and increase their metabolism. That’s quite alright.

  • I have a flat stomach when I flex it, but I deal A LOT with bloating…..and it’s frustrating me so bad. Because then I, and others can’t see my results and my abs if I don’t flex. Do you have any ideas what I could be or anything??

  • I now more than before love exercising after hearing its benefits, WOW am just amazed.Now am sure to exercise everyday for the love of it.You should try it too but be slow and easy on yourself if you are just a beginner or you’ll hate it,Trust me.

  • This put me at ease about taking a week off from the gym when I go on vacation at the end of July! In the middle of week 3 of Cut Reload and I am loving it.

  • YES!
    I enjoy listening to athletes and coaches talk. I love character building.
    This is so relevant,in my life,as I struggle with process and commitment inside the gym and out. I have always liked things “turn key.” Time to give it up. Seems you gotta be obsessed with the process,process oriented, to truly excel in life.
    Anyway,this is Jeff’s show,not mine. In agreement with this guy philosophically. Listening to this “pep talk”and the likes helps move the head knowledge outta the head and into action. Makes me want to do better! To me this is what a great coach does!

  • Since the lockdown was lifted in May here in Spain I’ve been going for an hours walk every morning. It’s about 4km and has turned my life around.
    I stopped looking at the news month’s ago.
    I use Utube and enjoy inspirational videos.
    Keep up the great work guys. I’ve always enjoyed your stiff.
    Remember everyone, it’s starts with small changes good luck in your new life’s.

  • Oh my god this teacher is so funny love it,u make me feel laugh when I try to rest and again I get energy by your words �� thankyou

  • Yes this video is true. Exercise has become my number 1 passion since this COVID 19 started and I’ve been stuck at home with no work. It’s gave me something to do and made me feel more happy about myself.

  • Thanks, Shannon, that’s one of the things I like about BLE: no exercise necessary (yet!). I’m the same Lenneke as Lenneke Plat (I’ve reacted to earlier vids of you recently), but I started this new channel (Len’s Healthy Life) today to record my weight loss/BLE progress. Ofcourse I subbed you on this channel too! Hugs & blessings, Lenneke

  • Yikes, that doesn’t happen to me I feel so tired, I have muscle ache, headache, pain in my neck, Sometimes I feel sad, yikes, why I’m not normal?

  • I hate that its so hard for me to see results on my body when other people doing the same workouts see it in less time. Ive always had a negative view on what a healthy body should be like and when i dont see results i feel like ill fall back into those habits.

  • Heey I’m in a very stressed situation right now and I just don’t know how to overcome it with the minimal damage in my body. I undereated and overexercised in the past 4 months, and now I’m in hospital and on a bed rest for a month now. Obviously I can’t exercise and if I’m going out of the hospital I don’t know where to start it again. I don’t know how much muscle I will lose and how much I can risk to do. I try to gain my weight back from protein (if that’s even possible) but really I don’t know barely anything about how to gain weight back without looking so puffy but without exercising at all. Some suggestions? By the way you’re one of the biggest inspirations for me to recover from an eating disorder but I’m reaaally scared of gain fat and I want to solve it a little

  • How the heck YouTube knows dat I started running???? Till yesterday no video recommendation for exercise but today YouTube recommended me dis,, hey YouTube do u have agent around my house??

  • I started working out when I was 15 years old and my weight was 52 kg now I’m sixteen and my weight is 61 kg, is that good for November to September? I’m 1m83 cm

  • Hey my friends!! Back in London now and wanted to share some of the findings behind detraining, muscle loss, fat gain & more! Lots of love xx
