Diet vs Exercise
Updated: Nov 18, 2020
When it comes to getting in shape, which is more important, addressing your diet or exercise?
They say that abs are sculpted in the kitchen not the gym – but how true is this?
Context is important. If you are already in good condition then eating supremely healthy without any exercise isn’t going to make much of an impact on the definition to your muscles. But if you are on the large side and your diet is appalling, then definitely addressing your diet will see the biggest impact on your physique.
If your goal is to build muscle, then putting in the work in the gym alongside getting in enough protein are equally important in building mass and recovering for that next session.
The Jar Healthy Vending Machines in London are on hand to supply with an energy providing pre-gym boost with their range of convenient meals and snacks.
A ‘Power of Peanuts’ Bar, comprised of peanut butter and decadent dark chocolate, or a D8 Moreish Dates, a date stuffed with pecan and crushed apple, could be great options for a pre-workout hit of energy supplying carbohydrates.
You can also rely on The Jar Healthy Vending for a post-workout protein hit, with delicious meals such as the Pollen and Grace Salad range or quick snacks such as Popcorn Shed’s sweet chestnut range, available to help repair and build muscles with their high protein content.
Ultimately, the answer is that both addressing your diet and implementing exercise into your daily/weekly routine will have the most profound effect on your health. One without the other will help, but both sides should be considered for optimal results whatever your goal might be.
Finding the motivation and drive needed to stick to a strict gym routine, in order to maximise results, is all down to you, and also is dependent on whether or not you can find the time to do it, which your schedule might not allow. However, when it comes to the diet side, this is more passive and there can be no excuses. The Jar Healthy Vending Machines in London are on hand to help you maintain a healthy diet whenever you need to grab some food on the go.
