#3. MORE EXERCISE MEANS MORE WEIGHT LOSS
Just like you can overdo it by pouring one too many glasses of whiskey
, you can go overboard with exercise. "Too much exercise can stop weight loss … and causes physical stress that can hold back [your weight-loss goals]," Lynn warns. "Over-exercising makes stored fat even more resistant and harder to burn."
That said, it's your diet that's responsible for the bulk of your weight-loss success. "Ninety percent of weight loss is based on diet, with exercise making up the last 10 percent," she adds. "That's why eating right is paramount — so you don't have to live in the gym."
