Let’s say that you could get the body of your dreams if
you either worked out insanely (7x a week for more than an hour) and could eat what ever you wanted
if you ate super healthy (all veggies and fruit, no carbs, dairy, or sugar) and you could be as lazy as you wanted
Which would you rather do?

I’d rather not have the body of my dreams. 🙂 Both options sound miserable.

I would literally die without cake. DIE I SAY. I don’t mind a good bit of working out, so I would definitely work out versus restrict my diet.
In reality though it’s a balance between the two. But in your hypothetical situation, if I had to choose, I would eat whatever I want.

I guess out of those I’d pick working out because I like working out. I don’t really want to do it 7x a week for more than an hour but I could easily be okay with doing 7 hours+ a week. But I’d have to split it up by things like hiking (3+ hours), running (1-1.5 hrs), or biking (1.5 hours-2 hours) and then take a few days off. I mean, I’ve done plenty of 8+ hour hikes so I could kill it in one day
Working out helps to keep me sane and have energy. I’m miserable and lethargic when I can’t work out at least 3-4 days a week.
And there’s no way I could follow that diet…ever. I love carbs.
Working out definitely!
I would actually still eat well for the most part…but I wouldn’t have to worry about calories! Bring on the cheese, guac, cake, and pina coladas.

@engleman10513: Its hard, i love being lazy but also love my fast food.
I picked I would rather work out like a Mad woman, but now that i think about it. I think i would rather be lazy, I would get use to munching on fruit all the time lol.

In my prime I worked out 15+ hrs a week (lifting, agility training & rugby practice) & I would definitely do it again if I had the time. It took up all my evenings so it’s not as realistic as it was during my first undergrad!

Neither? I guess I’d eat healthy and not workout. I struggle to motivate myself 2-3x a week so 7 sounds like my worst nightmare.

I pick be fat and happy and eat cake. I enjoy delicious carbs (which btw our body totally needs in moderation) but work a job where working out for hours a day, everyday isn’t going to happen.
ETA: In HS, I was in marching band and a varsity athlete, so I worked out 4-6 hours a day 6/7 days a week and ate what I wanted, but I am not a high schooler with nothing to do other than go to basketball practice now. I could go back to that if I didnt have to work and clean and all that.

Work out, absolutely.
I actually like working out and I’m already doing it 5-6 days a week (1-2 of which are well above an hour) so another day or two to eat whatever I wanted. Hell yes, I’m in.

I hate both! I think I would just settle on not having the body of my dreams!

@engleman10513: I do both! It goes hand in hand to feel good internally/externally. I do eat cheese though 🙂
