A combination of both is required to maintain one's health as well as their body shape. Diet seems to be the popular choice as many people tend to have a block about physical activity. But we need to understand that with following a diet for long could infuse a sense of monotony and boredom and chances are likely that one could always go on a binge.

With exercise we need to follow a plan which suits our specific body type and an activity which sustains our interest .

Thus  complimenting diet with exercise would be ideal as one can claim benefits of both.

True, agree, a combination of both is always the perfect balance Smiley

1) First and foremost, people should understand their bodies. We all are made  in a different way with different metabolic systems. Some people can put all the cream and cheese in the world in their bodies and not show an inch of weight gain,even without any exercise! Whereas some people just need to look at a doughnut and gain one pound!

So, the first step is always to understand our own bodies, its metabolism rate, its way of functioning, its unique digestive system!

2) Second step would be to zero down upon a diet plus fitness regime to maintain a healthy body.

Some people get great results with Aerobics while some feel more relaxed and lighter after performing Yoga.

The Rule is NEVER PUNISH YOUR BODY, never force it to do something which it doesn't like, whether its fasting or swimming or hitting the gym!

Experiment with different exercise and diet regimes till you have zeroed down on the most comfortable one and just stick to that

3) Love your body and accept it. Every guy cannot be Sylvester Stallone and every girl cannot be Angelina Jolie. Constant comparisons with such celebrities makes matters worse. Learn that different people have different bodies-lean, muscular, thin, round and so on..and love the way your body is Smiley

I agree, a combination of both is required.
But I feel diet with simple exercise, i.e. walking, cycling is good for every one. Because of improper exercise will affect our weight and health.

Both exercise & diet are important factors to lose weight. To loose weight effectively, you need to have a diet plan, control your diet & do some exercises regularly.
