Experts have recently disputed the claim that exercise will combat obesity.
The British Journal of Sports Medicine published a report detailing the little effect exercise will have on obesity itself, though it can help battle related diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.
In fact, many professionals advice against exercise for obesity patients as it could end in serious harm and even end up in a trip to the hospital.
The best route to go with obesity, the report says, is to eat less food.

Dr. Aseem Malhotra, cardiologist, believes the food industry has been using manipulative marketing to profit off harmful products and is jeopardizing public health.
It’s easy to see his reasoning, with many celebrity endorsements and fast food being advertised in sports arenas and at sporting events.
These marketing campaigns allude to the fact that you can eat fatty fast food if you’re going to balance it with exercise.
But Malhotra says, “That is unscientific and wrong. You cannot outrun a bad diet.”
The report has evidence that almost 40% of people who maintain a normal weight will still see harmful metabolic abnormalities common with obesity when they eat foods high in fat, sodium, and sugar.
The Lancet global burden of disease program has also showed that eating unhealthy foods will result in more health problems than alcohol, smoking, and a lack of physical activity combined.
Malhotra warns that the public health messaging is crooked from the food industry, and even when the messages became reliant on calorie counting, the food was still unhealthy.
Research has proven that for every 150 additional sugar calories a person consumes compared to fat calories, their chance of developing diabetes increases 11-fold.
Does Exercise Matter in Obesity Help?
“An obese person does not need to do one iota of exercise to lose weight, they just need to eat less. My biggest concern is that the messaging that is coming to the public suggests you can eat what you like as long as you exercise,” says Dr. Malhotra.
Other health professionals have warned against the complete lack of exercise, calling it “idiotic” to ignore the importance of physical activity.
But while physical activity is extremely important in a healthy lifestyle, the report suggests that for obesity specifically, the types of food that enter the body matters much more.
