#3 Believing Exercise Can Make Up For Unhealthy Eating
If I had a nickel for every time someone described their incredibly over-loaded exercise regimen and their inability to lose weight, get strong, lean out, sleep better, get rid of achy joints, find motivation (should I go on?) – I would be living a carefree life in Fiji!
Exercise most definitely has a place in our pursuit of optimal health. Even better, having skilled trainer(s) that can help you execute a fitness program based on functional movements!
It will NOT, however, eliminate the effects unhealthy foods are having on your gut health and inflammation issues.   Although a consistent exercise program can have a positive impact on insulin sensitivity, it will NOT negate the impact when eating a plate full of syrup-laden pancakes. Exercise has absolutely nothing to do with our biochemistry – but guess what does?  Yep – our diet. 
You know the load of trans-fat that you consumed when you ate the side of french fries with that burger?   Exercise will NOT magically vaporize that trans-fat when you spend 30-40 minutes on a treadmill, it will NOT reverse the impact on metabolic derangement.
Although exercise can be a supplement to your healthy diet, it certainly is not a replacement. Don’t sabotage all of your dedicated hard work in the gym by ignoring the importance of clean nutrition!
