I think it depends on your starting point on adjusting your diet and how active your baseline is. For me, my eating habits were pretty darn good so not a lot of room to cut enough calories to get a healthy deficit going. My non-exercise activity level is one step above bed rest. Slightly kidding but not by much, my job is programming phone systems from my home. I don't even burn calories getting ready for work in the morning (roll out of bed 5 mins before start time, sit at computer in my jammies).

So for me at the starting point I was, I'd say balance was the opposite. I could only improve my diet @20% so ramping up my exercise seems to be the major factor in my weight loss.
