Why exercise may not be working

Okay, some news for all of you sweating your butts off and not seeing any results.  A recent article posted by Time addressed that issue.  Why do so many of us exercise long and hard and not see results that we're expecting.  Well recent studies found that exercising stimulates hunger.  And that many people who workout lose the benefits because they end up eating more!  It takes an hour of walking to burn 500 calories.  How long does it take to eat 500 calories?  Not long. The study also found that people who worked out tended to lead sedentary lives the rest of the time.  So for best results, instead of working out hard for an hour 3 times a week, than being sedentary the rest of the time,  try and remain active throughout the day, and focus on healthy eating.  to read the full article go to:,8599,1914857-1,00.html 

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
