It’s a chicken-egg kind of question for many people. Diet or exercise: which is the bigger priority to initially tackle? Will one be a logical gateway to the other?
Some people imagine their unhealthy eating habits stand in the way of having enough energy to exercise. Maybe if they could “diet” to lose weight first, workouts would be easier.
On the other hand, some people believe the mental and physical “boost” offered by exercise is the easier “sell” and will encourage them over time to invest in healthier eating.
In the midst of the inner debate, what does real world experience suggest? To boot, what does research actually have to say about the question?
