What you eat affects your health and physical activity has numerous health benefits. But, if you really want to see that number on the scale drop, what you put in your mouth matters most. People who simply cut calories to slim down lose about 2 pounds a week, says a study in the <em>International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders</em>. At the same time, people who exercise but don’t restrict calories drop less than half a pound each week.</p> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/health_blog/diet_or_exercise_whats_the_best_way_to_lose_weight#comments Health Blog Brierley Wright, M.S., R.D.
