Eat Less, Live Longer?

It's generally agreed that diet and exercise are both important tools for people who want to lose weight. But many believe in the supremacy of one over the other.

Now, a new study seems to show that the same amount of weight is lost through dieting as is done through taking exercise. But the research findings seem to contradict a few well-known concepts about diet and exercise, as this article shows.

And there is even a small suggestion from the research team that cutting calories might extend life. Interesting.
