My personal experience is that exercise makes me want to eat less, because it's painful and I look at a donut and think "it ain't WORTH it!"

Studies have shown: Dieters lose weight faster than exercisers - lose more, as a matter of fact, but exercisers KEEP the weight off better because while it's possible to learn to like moderate exercise, nobody ever learns to like dieting.

Also you diet and lose muscle, that reduces your metabolism, which makes the weight come back more - you diet - lose more muscle - you turn into veal. All fat, no muscle.

If you exercise, you gain muscle, which increases your metabolism.
