You CANNOT out-exercise a bad diet

img_1846You cannot out-exercise a bad diet. Period.

You cannot out-run, out-lift, out-yoga, out-dance, out-bike, or out-swim a bad diet, unless you spend your day exercising and who has the time or money to do that. You are going to hear us say this a lot in our conversation and you can learn the science that backs this up in Vive.

“The United States topped the list as the biggest eaters, according to calorie intake data released by The Food and Agriculture Organization. Americans eat an average of over 3,600 calories a day…The long-time recommendation is for you to aim for 2,000 to 2,600 calories per day if you’re a sedentary adult male and 1,600 to 2,000 if you’re a sedentary adult female. These values go as high as 3,000 for men and 2,400 for women, if you’re a very active adult”.
Running a 10-minute mile, (which is about average pace) burns 600 calories in an hour according to That means you would have to run three hours a day just to burn a daily surplus of 600 calories. Do any of us have the time or energy to run three hours a day every day? To just burn one can of soda, which is about 100 calories, you would have to do 10 minutes of jumping rope or 20 minutes of walking at a three-mile-per-hour pace.
Exercise benefits everything from our cardiovascular to our emotional health, but it was never meant to be the means to control and manage your weight. Can we stop buying into this one lie and free ourselves to learn the truth about weight-loss and how exercise does and does not impact our health? I worked out nearly every day and I went through periods that I even worked out twice a day and I ALWAYS FOLLOWED A VERY STRICT DIET.

Do you want to live in the gym? Do you want to live as slave to exercise programs that do not work and then blames you for not working? Aren’t we tired of submitting ourselves to people trying to make a living off us failing and feeling like failures, because we can’t live in the gym like they do ?

You have the power to get off the exercise treadmill and actually walk your whole-person towards health.
