Over the years, I’ve learned that diet is more important than workouts. If you eat a few slices of pizza, that adds up to be around 1,000 calories. If you’re jogging on the treadmill for 30 minutes, you’ll only burn around 300 calories.
The moral of the story is that you simply can’t outwork a bad diet.
Below are some great quotes on dieting and nutrition. Enjoy.
