Reminder: Exercise AND Eat Right

New research has found that when some people increase their physical activity, they also increase how much they eat. For those of us who have found ourselves starving after sweating our butts off at the gym, this new bit of research is hardly enlightening.

The issue is that if you don't watch what you eat, you won't reap all the benefits that you should be getting from all your hard work at the gym. So take this post as an opportunity to remind yourself to exercise and eat right. Doing one without the other is not nearly as effective as doing both combined. Keep in mind it really doesn't take that many calories to eat past the progress you made from exercising—exercise does not give us a license to eat an oreo pizza everyday for dessert.

Keep up the good work of working out and eating right and you'll be just fine!
