That is absolutely wrong. Doing weights or cardio is going to make you loose weight. In fact you will burn more calories in the long run by lifting weights. When you do strength training you build muscle mass which speeds up your metabolism and burns more calories just being stationary.
If you just did nothing but cardio you are going to cause your body to eat muscle as it burns protein for energy. Doing a good mix of cardio and strength training is what you need for healthy weight loss. If all you can do is cardio than so be it. But don't ever neglect your primary source for strength, balance, posture, movement and heat for the body to keep warm.
Like I said in my previous post. For anybody serious about getting in shape don't listen to people here on ATS. You need to go to a forum that specializes in this subject matter. Not a conspiracy theory site.

A sensible diet is going to vary from person to person, but one should attempt to have a salad or some kind of leafy vegetables with both lunch and dinner (or as a tie-over between meals if you find yourself prone to growing hungry quickly). Water, or some hydrating liquid, should be consumed in relative abundance. One of the easiest ways to stimulate your metabolism and stave off hunger is to keep a consistent supply of water going through your system.
