Exercise And Weight Loss

Time Magazine reports some unconventional wisdom:

The basic problem is that while it's true that exercise burns calories and that you must burn calories to lose weight, exercise has another effect: it can stimulate hunger. That causes us to eat more, which in turn can negate the weight-loss benefits we just accrued. Exercise, in other words, isn't necessarily helping us lose weight. It may even be making it harder.

That doesn't mean that sloth is the dieting solution. Read the whole thing.

And if you're trying to lose weight, don't get your exercise tat the Texas State Fair.
