This is Why You Probably Can't Out-Exercise Your Terrible Diet

The amount of times I've heard someone say, "I need to workout so I can go eat a big burrito" is countless. We try to make up for our terrible eating habits by going for a jog, a bike ride or hitting up a yoga class, but the reality of the matter is, we're really not helping ourselves out all that much. In fact, the calories people burn during a workout is correlated with their weight, age, fitness level, heart rate and more. So how many calories are you actually burning? It's hard to know.

Stop trying to make up for that bad food your eating with the healthy exercise you're incorporating. Live a well-balanced lifestyle with not only great workouts, but healthy food choices.
