I agree...exercise to lose weight never made sense to me. Exercise for good health is a differed story.

I disagree with only cutting calories to lose weight. What happens to a 1200 calorie diet ? You shouldn't go under 1200 calories , so how do you cut calories then?

This is the stupidest article I have ever read. As the people before me mentioned, exercise is very important for building muscle, which in turn does burn more calories. In addition, severe calorie restriction and no exercise will lead to muscle loss. Of course, by your definition, that will translate into weight loss, but losing muscle is not by any means good!

Providing references in this case would be an excellent idea. And critically reading the entire science articles is a good idea as well.

Very interesting studies. Definitely food for thought. The studies do seem to show what you put in your body will effect your overall weight. Incorporating activity into your weekly regime will contribute to your overall health. -Tammy-Lynn McNabb , Host www.Healthradio.fm

You are not addressing muscle mass and fat percentage - body composition changes when you exercise. Very out of touch with body composition and fitness leading to health. You are just looking at numbers. Plenty of thin women who couldn't run to the end of the block or lift anything over 5 lbs.

Both of these studies sounds fascinating (International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders and Obesity Reviews). I wonder could you provide exact references or a link to the papers or even the names of the respective authors? Thanks in advance, Conor.

I think you also need to mention that exercise and strength training will build muscle which in turn will increase your metabolism. Also, exercise strengthens the heart, which dieting alone will not do.
