A combination of a healthy diet and a well-rounded exercise regimen is key for weight loss. But if you pit the two against each other, one yields more results than the other. When it comes to dropping pounds, what you put in your body is more important than how you move it, according to the AsapScience video above. The clip explains that cutting out calories is more fruitful than running on the treadmill because it takes less time. You could put on your gym clothes, go to a workout class and come home and shower to burn some calories, or you could just not eat a candy bar. While exercise is crucial for leading a healthy life, exclusively, it doesn't often promote weight loss. A 2015 study found that calorie control is more successful, especially because exercise increases appetite in many people. Even more, additional research found that working out burns more calories initially, but the burn eventually plateaus as the body adjusts for stability. Nevertheless, we have to stress that putting the two together is your very best bet for getting the most out of life. Don't forget that physical activity can reduce risk for heart disease, cancer and diabetes and can boost your mood and help you sleep better. Lucky for you, you don't have to choose between the two.

Millennials' sweet tooth be damned. Snickers appears to be courting older viewers of the Super Bowl with an ad featuring 60-year-old actor Willem Dafoe as a grumpy Marilyn Monroe. As Snickers did last year with Danny Trejo mixing it up with "The Brady Bunch," this year's commercial spotlights the candy's ability to cure crankiness as part of its "You're Not You When You're Hungry" campaign. Marilyn (looking like Dafoe) complains about her iconic flying-skirt scene from "The Seven Year Itch." But all it takes is a bite of Snickers to get her back to being, well, Marilyn. Film history saved. Also on...
