Some say you can’t outrun your fork, or “weight loss happens in the kitchen.” You can outrun your fork — if you love running (or don’t tend to eat a lot), and as long as you don’t get injured (and knocked out of your routine). And you can definitely out-eat your exercise schedule, as many people do.
There’s no way around it. For long-term weight management and general health, you have to do both: eat mindfully and get regular exercise.
