For people who are over 50 what should be the proportion of exercise versus dieting to low some tonnage and maintain it?

I hear various suggestions about this, some state reduce the consumption, other state it is what one eat not how much, other state without exercise and lots of it, one cannot lose and maintain the proper weight.

The same rules apply for people over 50 - I would add that exercise becomes even more important, because by staying active and lifting some light weights, you'll be able to maintain a higher muscle mass, which burns more calories and also will help you stay healthy and strong as you age.
