NBC's announcing to me is just old and stale. I wasn't crazy about Fox but at least they were throwing new spaghetti at the wall. NBC also needs to buy a new drone camera. So many more YT accounts have better drone cameras.
Exercise burns less calories than people think it does, so when it comes to losing weight, yea it doesn’t do as much as you’d think. Exercise with a bad diet < good diet with no exercise.
However, exercise builds muscle, so it can make you look more fit even if your weight hasn’t necessarily changed much. Body recomposition is going to make you look better than simply losing weight.
When people tell me they want to lose weight, I always ask them what their goals are, because if they start hitting the gym hard and putting on muscle, they might not see a change on the scale at all. That can be demotivating if they’re using the wrong criteria to evaluate progress.
