For Weight Loss NYC - Does exercise help?

Although it might come as a shocking news to many, the science is very clear that exercise alone is use for weight loss, without a restricted diet at the same. Despite what the fitness companies want you to believe, it is wide reported and proven beyond reasonable doubt that the role of exercise is more important in helping you maintain weight. When it comes to losing weight, the role exercise plays is a minor, supportive role, to a reduced calorie diet.
