Best answer:

Answer by WRen
Because if you expend a lot of energy without the proper nutritional backup, you’re just going to exhaust yourself. Yes, exercise does burn calories, but you have to make sure you’re getting everything you need to replenish your energy. When your muscles get sore, proper nutrition can help speed the healing process, etc.

Theoretically, you could just stop eating and continue exercising and thusly burn fat away without worrying about gaining any weight back, but you’d be very tired and may not heal properly and things may begin to get wonky.

    think about it like this……if you had a car and you spent tons of time fixing up the engine so it was perfect but then never put any gas into it it wouldnt be able to work and show off all the work that you put into it…same thing for your body and food is the gas :)
