does calorie restriction cause weight loss?

Yes: A low-calorie diet speeds up weight loss. If a person eats fewer calories than he needs to live on each day, his body will use the stored fuel (fat). If a person exercises more than he did before, but does not start eating more calories, then his body will also use up the stored fat. The only way a low calorie diet might not cause weight loss is if it somehow decreased a person's exercising.
