What does academic research say?
Research by Dr. R. Robert, et al. (“Reduction in Obesity and Related Comorbid Conditions after Diet-Induced Weight Loss or Exercise-Induced Weight Loss in Men”, Annals of Internal Medicine Vol. 133 No. 2 July 18, 2000 pg. 98) found that people who experienced “exercise-induced weight loss” lost more weight than those who followed a diet alone program.
Furthermore, they found that people who only dieted saw no improvement in their cardiovascular fitness compared to those who were physically active. According to Dr. D. Larson-Meyer (“Effect of Postpartum Exercise on Mother and Their Offspring: A Review of Literature”, Obesity Research Vol. 10 No.8 Aug 2002, p.846) “…regular physical activity has a positive effect on mental health including reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression and increased general well-being” for women who are active.
