Well, the short answer is the gym, while you can certainly do both, your muscles require something called progressive overload to grow, meaning the difficulty of your exercise has to increase over time or you will not make progress, which is much easier to achieve in the gym by moving to higher weights. Eating more protein and healthy fats can also help.

This is what I do to stay fit. I focus mainly on diet rather than working out.
Early morning on empty stomach I’ll have a glass of hot water with honey. For breakfast, I’ll generally have a fruit. It can be a banana, apple, papaya. It varies according to availability. If there’s no fruit in my home il have 2 dosas or 2 idlis. One glass of milk is compulsory for me.
I’ll drink 1 liter of water from morning to lunch. For lunch, I eat whatever I want but by focussing and chewing properly. I generally take rice in the afternoon. I’ll drink another one liter of water from lunch to evening.
I’ll have something for every 4 hours.
So for a break, if I’m taking any tea or coffee I’ll have it without any sugar. Yup, I never take sugar. You can say I’m following a sugar diet.
There’s are no particular food items I follow. Whatever is there in my home I’ll eat. It can be any tiffin variety. The trick again is to focus and chew. And a glass of milk for sure.
Walk / Dance / Sport
I walk at least 2 km a day. Brisk walk. You don’t need to hit the gym. You can do brisk walks or dance to keep your muscles intact. I’ve seen my friends playing badminton. Some work out is necessary to keep our body active. Just half an hour or 1 hour of any activity is needed.
This is my routine and this has reduced my weight by 11kgs and I’m more healthy and fit now.
The trick is that you have to close your mouth while chewing the food and you have to chew a minimum of 24 times. It’s not only about count, it’s about focusing on food when you eat. Our parents often tell us to eat food slowly and not swallow it faster and also they’ll tell us not to watch tv or use phones while eating because our focus will not there on food. when you focus and chew you’ll be able to eat only for the capacity of your stomach.
