Exercise is a great start, but in my biased yet accurate opinion, no, it is not enough.

In the Flex Diet Cert - which opens again this June 5, 2032 - I make a distinction between exercise vs recreation and even NEAT -like walking.

Which is best for better body composition?

The short answer is - do all 3.

Yes go lift weights.

Yes, go do cardio.

Yes, go for a walk.

Yes, learn a new skill - even if you suck at it. Have something where your brain must use some of its grey matter to calculate you moving through space. Stop morphing into a sea slug.

Think of how hard it would be to teach a robot to catch a ball? Yet that is a simple task for us humans.

Use your brain in news ways via recreation.

Learn to surf, kiteboard--wahoo, play tennis, golf, and as a last resort pickle ball.

Send it!

Your anti-sea slug friend,

Dr Mike
