    And among those who used exercise,

    Only 58% reported eating fewer calories

    Less than two-thirds (58 percent) of people trying to lose weight reported eating fewer calories.

    The data for the study was obtained from the 1998 National Health Interview Survey, a face-to-face nationally representative household interview.

    Conclusion

    “Efforts are needed to aid those trying to lose weight to incorporate appropriate levels of physical activity into their weight loss strategy,” the authors concluded.
