An educational video produced by Vox was created to help those who are frustrated in using exercising for weight loss to meet their health goals.

The video, descriptively titled 'The science is in: Exercise isn’t the best way to lose weight,' shows that working out is only a small part of what contributes to real weight loss. With this, the company shows the problem with the widespread idea that just exercising for weight loss will lead to results. This is because those who begin rigorous routines often compensate energy loss with more food, as well as leads to what's deemed "compensatory behavior" -- meaning that those who work out might be less inclined to participate in other physical activities through their day.

The video concludes that overeating is what needs to be addressed by anyone looking to lose weight, however Vox also notes the positive changes that can come from working out regularly.
