What would you choose to lose weight: diet or exercise?
I know that combining both will be the best solution but please choose one.
For me, I would have to chose exercise. It keeps your body fit, and if pick activities you like it can be enjoyable to! If I couldn't exercise, and had to rely on diet to lose weight I would probably go nuts.
Diets are too restrictive in my opinion, as long as you get your vital nutrients and don't over indulge no food should be off limits (except when a health condition mandates it of course).
In my opinion, a diet is never going to help you to lose weight. At least not in a good way. Only if you were to starve yourself. You need the calories to provide enough energy to get you through the day.
Exercise is a far better way of losing weight. I've just written a hub about this as a matter of fact, you should check it out.
Strange question: one cannot go without another. Healthy diet does not need to be too restrictive, neither exercises to exchausting - for long term effect only combination can work. Choosing only one of them means that diet will have only short-term effect.
Exercise is the best. You want to increase your metabolism and try to turn your body into a "fat-burning machine." For women, it is especially important to do weight training. Far the popular position held decades ago that thought this activity unseemly for women, weight training is vital. Why? Because it promotes the thickening and hardening of bones (as you no doubt know, women tend to lose calcium more readily than men....). You want to increase your muscle to fat ratio. You are aware, of course, you can lift weights without turning into the She-Hulk!
Well, Good Luck!
In my opinion it really is a combination of both. You need to exercise and have the right diet. You also can't starve yourself to loose weight because that is unhealthy and not really the most efficient way to loose weight.
Have a great day
In my opinion, doing exercise is much better than going on diet. But that doesn't mean one should go for a heavy food. A balanced diet should be taken while losing weight in order to provide body the necessary elements it wants.
Excercise to build muscle. Muscle replacing fat will allow you to eat the same and -- depending on how and what you eat -- will either slow weight gain or result in weight loss.

why choose? You need both.
However, no amount of training is going to make up for bad nutrition. If you consume too many calories, and especially too many empty calories you will not lose weight.
So if i am forced to choose between the two i will reluctantly say "diet" although to really get results you need to do some exercise as well.
I think both should go together. I have written a hub called The Diet Solution Program by Isabel De Los Rios: What makes it different from other diet programs. It may help find the right answers.

In the last few years, low carb diets seem to have become the "go-to" diet, especially for those looking to lose weight quickly. I'm thinking of reducing my carbs a little, but for me it's not a huge change - I simply want to try to eat more whole grains and pulses and introduce some more...
