Exercise & Fuel: Why aren't I losing weight?
Updated: Jun 11, 2019
Fuelling your activity may be more about timing than quantity. If you’re invested in exercise, chances are you are already eating a healthy diet? Most of us* can utilise a combination of stored fuel reserves and our usual food intake to meet the requirements of recreational training. Splitting meals to satisfy hunger before exercise & ensure optimum refuelling after is a useful strategy rather than adding in additional meals & snacks. This will help to ensure you don’t overcompensate for the activity and undo all your good work!
*Energy requirements vary according to the individual as well as the type and duration of activity. For more detailed information about your specific needs consult a qualified Nutritionist or Dietitian.
