Diet or Exercise

Diet or Exercise: Which is Better for Losing Weight? Shine from YAHOO! 

One way I make it through my work out when I'm huffing and puffing on the treadmill is to tell myself that after it's all over, I can reward myself with a little extra food. That's because exercise revs up metabolism, right? Wrong. For years the common refrain from fitness gurus and diet books has been that if you exercise regularly you'll keep torching those Big Macs all day long--and even at night ("It's a miracle!

1 Tim. 1:16 "God had mercy on me, so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime example of his great patience...then others will realize that they, too, can believe in Him and have eternal life."
