TAIPEI (Taiwan News)–Many people have tried to lose weight by exercising hard
but kept eating unrestrictedly. However, experts rebutted this method as one of the most common misconceptions, stressing that diet should always play a leading role in efforts to lose weight while exercise play an indispensable supporting role.
If people eat less, exercise more and follow the regimen consistently, they can expect to lose one to four kilograms every month, according to the experts.
Chinese Taipei Association for the Study of Obesity (CTASO) recently conducted a survey of 1,000 females aged 25 to 40 regarding dieting practices and weight loss. The survey found that nearly 90% of the females had tried to lose weight, and more than 50% of them said they almost never stopped trying to lose weight.
