When you want to lose weight the best thing to focus on is your diet (how much energy you take in). Exercise can help with weight loss and, more importantly, with maintaining a weight loss but the majority of the loss will come from cutting your calories. For example, it takes about 40 minutes of brisk walking to burn off the equivalent of a small bag of potato chips. It’s easier just to avoid eating the chips in the first place. Count your calories and focus on eating healthier and you can reach your weight loss goal.
