This is one of the most common questions for people starting a new health kick. To get the best result from your fitness regiment, there is no doubt you need the correct (for you!) ratio of each. However, as is commonly echoed by trainers everywhere, you will never be able to out-train a bad diet.
It is important to understand that building a healthy relationship with food is a crucial step in their quest for health. Someone could go to the gym five days a week, but if their food is not on point, they will see minimal results. Opposite that, a person hyper-focused on enhancing their food quality and choices, can do minimal work at the gym two times a week and see substantial progress in less than 30 days.
Building a good relationship with food supports permanent weight loss. Taking the time to learn and understand how your body uses food improves overall health, restores energy and a quality of life most people are not aware they have lost.
