Question- What will happen if I exercise and don’t diet?


Hey there! Firstly, I don’t know if you’ve heard this before, but being fit is about 30% exercise and 70% diet. I don’t know if you are asking me this because you want to lose weight or gain muscle or stay the same, but if you are exercising you probably wish to be fitter than what you are today. Anyone can exercise for 1 hour, but what matters is what you do the next 23 hours– those 23 hours define you. What you eat is extremely important, you cannot workout and drink a can of coke which is 30g of sugar in 300ml, because how are you growing in your journey to become fit then?

Secondly, your ‘diet’ has to be a lifestyle, not what you stick to for 3 months and then get back to where you were. Diet doesn’t mean restricting yourself, it means nourishing yourself for the best.

So yes, exercising and not following a healthy diet isn’t too good. Hope that helped!

  1. Hey.. Read your answer on Quora.
    I am overweight and trying to lose weight. I weight 91 kgs. I am a vegetarian. How do i increase protein intake? And what changes should i make in my diet? Please help.


    1. Hi Tanvir
      Broccoli, almonds, soy, pumpkin seeds, oats, tofu, peanut butter, etc are good forms of vegan protein.
      You can start cutting carbs and sugar after 6pm and track your calories and create a calorie deficit which will result in weightloss.


      1. I think cutting the carbs after 6 applies only if u r working out in the morning.

        Keep your carbs around the workout.


      2. I think its because your body is barely working physically in the evening and hence the carbs don’t get burnt. Of course if you are working out post 6, carbs can be your pre workout 🙂
