Diet vs. Exercise for Weight Loss

DESCRIPTION: When asked whether food and beverage consumption or physical activity was more important, the majority of people get the answer wrong. This will look familiar to those who’ve seen my 2012 presentation, either live or vicariously at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/uprooting-the-leading-causes-of-death/. Tomorrow I cover the wild finding about meat and weight gain (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/meat-and-weight-gain-in-the-panacea-study/). Note the caloric expenditure equivalencies I present here are assuming no dietary compensation–something seen quite dramatically, for example, in nut consumption (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/testing-the-dietary-compensation-theory/). Given how hard it is to work off food, let’s make our calories count by choosing the most nutrient dense foods. Calculating Your Health (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/calculate-your-healthy-eating-score/) may be a good place to start.
Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/diet-or-exercise-whats-more-important-for-weight-loss/ and he’ll try to answer it!
