The aim of this study was to establish the effectiveness of the combination of exercise combined with diet as a mechanism for reducing weight in obese subjects and whether it is a more effective method than diet or exercise alone. The study took the form of a review and analysed studies investigating effects of diets, exercise and diets and exercise. Five interviews completed on obese individuals were referenced within the discussion to provide some qualitative reinforcement to the discussion. The results of the review didn't completely support the hypothesis that a combination of dietary restriction plus exercise is a more effective method for losing weight than diet or exercise used on there own. Exercise and diet in combination may well be more use than on their own due to diets ability to lose weight and exercises suggested ability to maintain that weight loss. This result is not def,rnitive due to inconsistent findings and conflicts in the literature and research. This study suggested that it could be due to the differences in subjects, ages, exercise programs and dietary restrictions used in the studies.
