Based on my experiences (I lost 70 pnouds before), I'd have to say that diet is more important than exercise. But don't fully base your weight loss on diet alone. You'll gain it all back if you just starve yourself so a daily exercise should also be implemented in your lifestyle.References :

I am trying to loose 5 pounds and has not being easy.
I am exercising everyday, 45 mins cardio one day elliptical the other day ranning and some weights
My daily menu is:
A glass of water before breakfast
I glass of body by vi shake with bananas and non fat milk.
A mango or apple in between meals
Lunch- sometimes another shake or breast chicken with steeled vegetables
Dinner - filled fish and streamed vegetables or or 3 boiled eggs with the yoke.
And I am not loosing weight. For over 30 days, I am still 125.40 pounds.
I think I have serious problem with my metabolism. It's what the personal trainer thinks.
Please tell me what to do.

It also seems like very slow weight loss for the seriously overweight. I'm on a healthy diet that's about half the calories that formula recommends. I don't need to feed my fat, just my lean body mass that's underneath it. LOL

This formula does not account for sex, age, or activity level.

I'm getting 880 calories - not nearly enough for an active female.

That calculation is ridiculous. A 124 lb woman should eat 988 calories a day? Yeah, that sounds healthy.

and the weight number - is that the current or goal weight...unclear in your post...especially for newbies!

What is the scientific basis for this calculation? It seems bogus to me

700 calories a day? This obviously does not go for skinny people, or i would die of malnutrition.

that formula doesn't work so well for petite people trying to lose a few pounds... it calculates my intake to around 800 cals a day. too low to be healthy... just sayin
