Hydroxycut™: Weight Loss Is More Than Just Exercise

Hydroxycut™ Agrees That Weight Loss Requires a Well-Rounded Approach That Encompasses Diet and Exercise in Moderation

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - Weight loss is a topic that has garnered the attention of much of the nation, as many people are beginning to incorporate healthier activities and diets into their lifestyles in response to the highly sedentary culture that has evolved in the United States. As such, the discussion questioning how much is too much regarding diet and exercise has proven relevant in many ways. Hydroxycut™, the number one best-selling weight loss supplement brand in the country, shares an article from CNN that cites moderation as a good rule of thumb.

According to the article, "As with so many other things in life, exercise may work best if you follow the Goldilocks rule: exercise neither too little nor too much, if your goal is to shed extra weight, a new study finds." This study, conducted by Danish researchers, asserts that exercising too much can actually result in less weight lost. The authors of the study have developed several theories regarding this surprising find.

One theory is that participants ate more calories in an effort to compensate for the additional exercise in which they engaged. Additionally, those participants who lost less weight despite working out more were less active during the rest of their day. As a result, they did not burn as many calories over the course of their average routine.

"Overall, Rosenkilde [lead researcher on the study] concluded, people who exercise less may end up burning just enough calories to lose weight, but not enough to feel compelled to replace them, either by eating more or remaining sedentary otherwise," claims the article.

"A healthy approach to weight loss is one that considers both diet and exercise -- and engages both in moderation. As the article notes, individuals who exercise too much may find that they eat more to compensate for the calories that they have lost, or that they are sluggish or tired throughout the rest of their day and, because they become more sedentary, miss out on burning the calories that they would have naturally. At Hydroxycut™, we encourage adults to create weight loss plans that are tailored to their needs and to their goals. As such, it's important for them to determine how much exercise allows them to shed unwanted pounds without negatively impacting other aspects of their daily life," comments the company in a recent press statement.
