Exercising without dieting was shown to be as effective for modest weight loss as dieting without exercising, in this latest study. To summarize:

"Our findings are in stark contrast to previous observations. Although we reaffirm that diet restriction is effective for reducing total and abdominal obesity, our findings also demonstrate that 12 weeks of approximately 60 minutes of daily exercise without caloric restriction is associated with substantial reductions in body weight," the authors report.
