Diet, not exercise, plays key role in weight loss

Study: Better nutrition trumps physical activity in avoiding obesity

Physical activity has many proven benefits.
It strengthens bones and muscles, improves mental health and mood, lowers blood pressure, improves cholesterol levels and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, breast cancer and colon cancer. Exercise is also good for your brain.
It may not be a cure-all for obesity, however.

I don't really believe this. I used to eat really unhealthily but worked out all the time but was in amazing health. Now i eat really healthy but never work out and i'm not in as good shape.
