An investigator for the national institute of diabetes and digestive and kidney diseases says the average person burns just five to 15 percent of their daily calories through exercise.
Not only that, but exercise increases your appetite, and that could sabotage all those sit-ups and crunches.
To put it into perspective — studies show a 185-pound person burns 200 calories in 30 minutes of walking.
All that can be undone by eating four chocolate chip cookies or one-and-a-half scoops of ice cream.
So while experts say exercise is important, diet is a much more important lifestyle factor.
And who better to give some nutrition tips than someone who has the experience – and – even wrote her own book! In this video meet Angela Ross who is also the owner of gorilla house gym in Altoona!
