For Weight Loss, Which is Best?...Exercise or Diet?

For some people, they look at running as a means to lose weight. As the video clip show, it helps but you need to look at your diet as well.

Well as someone who's cycled for 30y and had a problem with weight, I can tell you that exercise is useless for weight control. I gained control by cutting starch and sugar.

Couldn't agree more with Gearoid. I joined a gym in Jan 2014, having been a 'fair weather' runner for years. I did all the weights and program the gym provided me. I lost 800g in one month and weighted around 95kg. In Jun 2014 I was still at 95 kg. I stopped eating processed sugar (chocolate, desserts, sugar in coffee, etc) and more or less gave up on or forgot about the gym program. By Dec 2014 I was down to 81 kg, just by cutting out processed sugar.

On the radio I heard one lady say that diet gets the weight off while exercise keeps it off and I'd go along with that.
