Health experts on why you should be spending more time on meal prepping not exercise

Ever feel you are spending countless hours exercising each week, but not making any progress?

Research has found that regardless of how hard you are working out, high levels of physical activity can’t counteract the effects of a poor diet.

And plenty of health experts agree, as nutritionist Zoe Bingley-Pullin explains.

“When we look at our health, a good diet is ultimately the foundation,” Bingley-Pullin, who has partnered with YouFoodz, shares.

“Everything you eat will then be the building blocks for how your health responds, even if we dig deeper and look at epigenetics and genes, we now know that our diet can be the key that can increase or decrease our chances of health complications.”

Eating a good diet and exercising regularly sounds easy enough, but the fast-paced life we tend to lead can have adverse effects on our diets.

When juggling not only work but friends and family, we often struggle to find the time to prepare and cook healthy meals, resorting to skipping meals or grabbing a quick bite to eat where we can.

Whilst these quick food options seem convenient and satisfying at the time, they can offer an adverse benefit to our overall health.

Especially when it comes to weight loss goals, as personal trainer Sam Wood shares with 9Honey Coach.

“My number one weight loss tip as much as I’m a fitness guy would be you can’t out train a bad diet. Unless you look at nutrition as well you’re just never going to get very far or never going to get there very fast,” he tells us.

“The key to weight loss I think people feel it’s cardio. But the reality is it’s probably nutrition number one, strength or resistance training number two, and cardio number three and I think if people can remember that it will hold them in good stead.”

Bingley-Pullin also adds that while exercise is crucial for our health, the culmative effect of a bad diet is about more than just excess calories.

“When we look at our diet diversity, it’s critical and plays a vital part in a healthy gut. It’s how we eradicate toxins from our body and build our neurochemicals to help us have healthy regulation of our hormones,” she explains.

“As we all know living in today’s fast-paced society it’s very easy to reach for unhealthy alternatives. Having well-balanced meals ready at hand from a meal subscription service like Youfoodz can take some of those pressures away.”
