Diet or Exercise, Conflicting Messages?

The latest research on weight loss shows what most people already knew…it’s a combo of diet and exercise.  According to a University study, scientists found that weight loss study participants all lost an average of 22 pounds through diet, exercise or both.  But they did find one big difference.

Those who included exercise in their weight loss programs were able to specifically target belly fat.  In fact, the diet plus exercise group shrank their abdominal fat cells twice as much as those who only dieted.  Abdominal fat cells have different amounts of metabolic enzymes than other parts of your body, causing them to be more responsive to exercise.
