The consequences of only dieting to lose weight
This is simply a natural consequence of reducing your food intake. As a result of a depressed metabolism, your body is able to survive on less food. However, this also means that it is much easier to now consume an excess of calories (energy) and if this is done, weight re-gain is inevitable.

The importance of exercise to lose weight
Preserve your muscle mass
Boost your metabolism
Furthermore, resistance training (weight training) is one of the the best forms of exercise to lose weight simply because it has the ability to permanently boost your metabolism by helping to increase your muscle mass and by doing so, permanently speed up your metabolism.
Regulates your appetite
For example, the number of capillaries surrounding each muscle fibre increases, your heart and lung capacity increases, the number of mitochondria in body cells increases, the number of red blood cells in your body increases, and there is an increase in the oxidative enzymes in the body tissues as well. Most of these adaptation tend to result from aerobic exercise and these adaptations have to do with an improvement in the body's ability to absorb and utilise oxygen more efficiently. This means greater fat burning.
The best exercises to lose weight
There are some criteria that can help you identify that most effective exercises to lose weight fast. These criteria are discussed in more detail in the article, Exercises to Lose Weight Quickly. In summary, the best exercises to lose weight quickly are those that fulfil the following criteria: have a high energy expenditure, are weight bearing, work the large muscle groups of the body, work the muscles through a long range of motion and are aerobic in nature.
By selecting exercises that fulfil these criteria and then, most importantly, incorporating them into your lifestyle long term, you will be able to lose weight quickly and best of all, keep it off.
The fastest way to lose weight

Not only does this approach use principles in the area of exercise to lose weight, but this strategy also suggests nutritional principles and supplementation principles as well.
However, to summarise, simply wake up in the morning and take a thermogenic, then perform exercise for at least 30 minutes (preferably weight training followed by aerobic exercise), then wait 20-30 minutes and then have breakfast.
