Regular Exercise Goes Hand In Hand With Improvement In Diet – Study

November 23, 2011: 12:00 AM EST
An increase in physical activity is associated with improvement in the quality of diet, a U.S. study has found. The researchers said that an understanding of the interaction between exercise and a healthy diet can improve both preventative and therapeutic measures against obesity. Data from studies suggest that tendencies toward a healthy diet and the right amount of exercise often go hand in  hand: increasing physical exercise actually tends to improve diet quality. The researchers said that “when exercise is added to a weight-loss diet, treatment of obesity is more successful and the diet is adhered to in the long run."
