The food and beverage industry is most guilty of perpetuating the false belief that the obesity epidemic is simply due to lack of exercise, spending billions to market nutritionally poor products as “sports drinks” while simultaneously promoting the benefits of physical activity.


None of this is particularly surprising to anybody who has looked into weight loss or health before. It starts with what you eat in the kitchen, and that's the most important part for weight loss. After that exercise can help you lose a little more, but it is more important for overall health than weight loss.
