Physical exercise is often being attributed too big of a role in the elimination of fat. If compared with diet, exercise is much less important than diet, when trying to lose weight. In fact, to lose fat and extra pounds, we don't even need to exercise. In other words - an adequate diet will gradually eliminate the excess body fat, no exercise needed. And vice versa, without changes in your diet, you can bust your ass exercising every day, but the desired results just won't come.
