Food or Exercise for Fat Loss?

A new systematic review and meta-analysis has shown that dietary factors are indeed more important than exercise in terms of reducing body fat.  However, exercise is better at reducing visceral fat, the type of fat that is a primary risk factor for multiple chronic diseases!  Bottom line, is that both diet and exercise are important for fat loss.
