Diet vs. Exercise: Which is Better for Weight Loss & Health?


Chuck Lowered his Blood Sugar 50 points, Reversed his Diabetes and Fatty Liver Disease, and Lost 32 lbs. and his Love Handles, and Regained his Health!

Chuck's wife asked the question I get every single day: "Which one is better for weight loss, diet or exercise?" Apparently, the couple was having a debate over this since the doctor told Chuck he better do something about his fatty liver and pre-diabetes since he was at risk for serious health issues.

The short speech is that when you have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) it's caused by elevated blood sugar levels due to your overconsumption of sugar both table sugar (like the kind you add to your morning coffee and the sugar that's in milk and creamers), as well as sugar that's consumed in juicing or consuming too much fruit and other carbohydrates. It causes the liver to convert them into fat in a process called hepatic De Novo Lipogenesis (DNL), which leads to fat accumulation in the liver. Not because of the fat you eat, but because you're consuming too many carbs and sugars.

To answer the diet or exercise question, YOU CANT EXERCISE AWAY A BAD DIET! 80-90% of weight loss depends on diet and exercise makes up the remaining 10-20% (dependent on your health history, age, whether you're female or male). That's why the main goal when trying to improve health, lose weight, and reduce belly fat is to start by addressing what you're putting into your body. In other words, clean up your diet.

Chuck struggled with this because he was quite addicted to his daily 90-minute CrossFit class. But what he didn’t realize was how much it ramped up his appetite and made it harder to stick to his weight loss plan, along with the sense of entitlement that often comes with it. Most exercisers think they can eat a little extra because, after all, they worked out. But, nothing could to further from the truth.

If watching what we ate and exercising more worked, we would all be at goal weight!

Don't worry; there is more hope than you think, and it’s actually easy to do if you follow the Quick Keto Metabolic Reset Meal Plan, which replaces two meals daily with a Metabolic Boosting Complete Protein Shake instead, which is made specifically to boost metabolism and fat burning. And, take Keto Carb Edge 2-3 times per day as a core. For maximum strength fat-burning, I suggest taking Cutting Edge as well.

If you prefer to put your own bundle together, like Chuck did, that's fine too. Chuck took Metabolic Boosting Complete Protein Powder, Keto Carb Edge, and preferred to add Daily Power Shot. His wife did the same except she chose Daily Repair Liquid Collagen for her allergies, hair, skin, nails, and joint health.

The Metabolic Boosting Compete Protein Powder and Keto Carb Edge helped reduce Chuck's blood sugar within the first two days he began taking them. This made it easier for him to lose weight and melt off dangerous visceral belly fat. He reduced his exercise as he no longer felt the need to push his body obsessively in an attempt to lose weight and become healthier. All he had to do was address the underlying issues, which started by cleaning up what he was putting into his body. 

Stay strong and keep burning the fat off!
