To keep healthy, it is essential to find a balance in doing both. However, if I had to choose between maintaining a healthy diet and exercising routinely, I would go for eating healthy. Following a strictly healthy diet ensures not only weight control, but also disease prevention. Without a healthy diet, we would not be able to function actively.

If I had to chose between eating healthy or exercising daily, I’d chose exercising. Exercising is way easier then eating healthy. I just love fast food too much to give it up.

Hard question. ... I think I am pretty happy with just having to balance both.

I would want to exercise because doing so always makes me feel amazing and I never have any regrets after!

I’d choose exercising because I actually really enjoy working out when I have time to do so; eating healthy is a little harder because there’s always that piece of candy or that fatty pasta there to tempt you.
Brooke Anderson, senior, Ceres High School
Oh, I wish only one method would keep me fit in real life. Sigh. Considering that exercising is what I do on an everyday basis, I would love it if being active were the only thing I had to do to keep myself in shape. Let’s be real, I don’t have any desire to eat healthy foods because in real life, there is In-N-Out Burger. And no one can pass up In-N-Out.
Ellen Zheng, freshman, Modesto High School
I would choose to exercise regularly to stay fit. I’m pretty sure it’s not healthy to eat healthy all the time. But also because I don’t think I can stick to a strict diet.
