The key to losing weight? "You can't outrun a bad diet"

If you're hitting the gym every day but don't see the numbers going down on the scale, you might be going about weight loss all wrong. New research says focusing solely on exercise is not the answer to losing weight.

Researchers write that although regular exercise has many health benefits -- reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer by 30 percent -- it is our high caloric diets that lead to obesity.
