I definitely believe you need a good balance between eating healthy and exercise. There are certain types of exercise that will help you lose more fat, compared to certain exercises that will help with cardio health. Circuit training that includes plyometrics is incredible for both! Great for losing the pounds and toning the muscles!! A good PT can set up a great circuit in one session...and then you just have to follow it, and increase the amount of times you do it as you start to feel healthier!

The key to losing weight by working out is to burn more calories than you consume. If you consume, let's just say 2000 calories in one day, but you only do a workout that burns 1000...then, no, you're not going to experience any weight loss--it's impossible! "Dieting" or "watching what you eat" PLUS exercise will definitely help you shed the lbs. but ONLY if you are burning more than you consume!
I believe that eating junk food & exercising isn't going to help anyone lose weight. Exercise improves mood & I think when we feel better emotionally, we tend to eat better, feel better physically, and have more energy...all of those things combined plus a healthy diet will absolutely help a person shed weight. BUT you can't just do weight training...you can do all the sit-ups you want but you won't see those ab muscles unless you work in some cardio to your weekly schedule...cardio helps burn off stored fat.
I hope this helps...and makes sense! haha
