While it's true that you can't out-exercise a bad diet, if you're just starting out and have a lot of fat to lose, it may be best to leave your diet as-is and start with exercise.
People often go great guns when they start exercising (solo, anyways). But then life gets in the way and they fall off the wagon and their fitness level slowly begins to decline.
It doesn’t have to be that way though. It’s much easier to stay fit than it is to get fit. Once you’ve built up your fitness, it is possible to maintain your fitness in as little as five minutes a day.
