Eat Less/Exercise More:
Overall we’re really just shooting for a calorie deficit, right?. So, what’s easier? To pass on the 500 calorie larger order of McDonald’s fries, or for a 200 lbs. man to run for 35 minutes at a 10 minute mile pace?

Our example person above, to have a 3,500 calorie deficit in a particular week by exercise ALONE, would have to run for almost 4 hours! Studies have shown that diet modification is easiest for most people, but the BEST answers is a combination. So eat less AND exercise more.
