The answer to this question is actually multi-faceted. And here it is: yes, no, and maybe. The truth is, many people can effectively lose weight initially simply by reducing their daily calorie count. And cutting calories may allow an individual to continually lose weight for weeks or months until a desired weight level is reached.

But, for many individual's, particularly those whose weight loss goals border on the ambitious, cutting food intake and daily calories may not be enough to rearch a desired goal.

This is because the body has a very annoying habit of adusting its metabolism to match energy expenditure against energy intake. In other words, if you eat less, your metabolism may slow down. On a very basic level, this allows human beings to survive longer when food resources are scarce. However, in a modern world that includes dieting, this fact of human biology can significantly impair one's ability to shed pounds.

For this reason, many, if not most, dieters will find it beneficial to integrate a regimen of physical activity into their overall dieting plan. In doing so, they can establish a more optimal environment for weight loss by creating a daily need for additional calories while actually consuming fewer calories.
