I get soooooooooooooo tired of people telling me “Oh, I’m not worried about it. I can just burn this dinner off tonight on the treadmill.”

All I keep thinking, as I glance at their plate, is “Oh, really?” I’d never say that, though. I kind of just smile and say “Wow, well…hey!”

This video is why. (You don’t have to click on their links in the video – the site actually looks kinda spammy, even though the video is awesome.)

So…for all you people who swear that people only need to “move more” in order to lose that weight? Stop lying to people, and stop lying to yourselves. That’s why I write so much about food – if you think that you can eat calorie-heavy dishes and “just burn it off” at the gym… you’re sorely mistaken. Weight loss is, at least, 85% diet. If you never eat it, you never have to worry about burning it. It’s just that simple.

Here’s to making better decisions!
