Dieters still debate whether you can lose as much weight (or more weight) just as quickly whether or not you exercise. Research in this area has been spotty and the findings have been mixed. The bottom line is that regular exercise benefits your overall health in many ways—from improving your blood pressure and cholesterol levels to boosting your mental state—even if you are not trying to lose a single pound.
But many dieters find that exercise is essential to weight loss by helping create a calorie deficit. Also, research has shown that the lean muscle mass you develop from exercise burns more calories, even when you're at rest.
And if you're looking for thinner thighs and flatter abs, you'll achieve a fit, healthy look more easily with plan that includes both a healthy diet and exercise.
Several diet plans including as the Curves Diet, the Gotti Diet, and the Ultimate Sex Diet make exercise a critical step in achieving your weight-loss goals. These three diets are aimed at very different audiences, but they share an emphasis on the importance of exercise if you are trying to lose weight. The Curves Diet is aimed at adult women who patronize the Curves chain of women-only gyms. The Gotti Diet was written (with some help from adults) by teenage reality show star who lost weight by exercising regularly and following a healthy diet.
And then there's the Ultimate Sex Diet, which argues that sex is a free (and fun) form of exercise that burns calories and helps you lose weight. The Ultimate Sex Diet is more about healthy sex than about healthy eating, but according to webmd.com, sex does increase your heart rate and if you try some innovative positions you can work a variety of muscles.
