We'll go all out to diet and exercise.

But a national nutrition expert and Tulsa trainer say dieting is a mistake.

The say we need to change how we look at eating.

Clint Howard, of Tulsa Fitness Systems, says we need to think of food as fuel.

Too many people make a mistake, when they decide to starve themselves to lose weight.

He says when you do that you'll be hungry, lethargic and unable to pursue a healthy exercise plan.

He says a good diet and exercise are crucial and you can't have one without the other.

Nutritionist and Fitness Expert, Mark MacDonald, recently visited Howard's gym in Jenks.

He says you have to change your mindset when it comes to food, because a simple diet plan that stabilizes your blood sugar.

MacDonald suggests eating every 3 hours and to split the meals into thirds.

Your plate should include equal amounts of the proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

MacDonald says that will balance you blood sugar, so you'll eat less and lose weight.

He says you just have to exercise and work the food you love into your day.

Both men agree that the quick fix of diet is bound to fail.

They say it you'll learn to understand you body and it's nutritional needs you can be healthy and change our life.
