Just remember that in your own efforts whether you’re 22 or not,
A combination of Both nutrition and exercise together seems to work best, with nutrition being more important,
-Because the average person can simply eat more calories in than they can exercise off.
Exercise is also very important for muscle & metabolism, because according to a Danish study, people on a program who did no real dieting and only exercise, kept all of their muscle and lost only fat!
So whichever program you choose, Good Luck to all the self-improvers out there, & keep your goals realistic and fair to yourself!
