Short answer: Yes and no.

Long answer:
Ultimately, the only way to lose fat is to maintain a caloric deficit, which means burn more calories than you eat.

You can do this by simply eating fewer calories, and there are countless ways to try and go about doing this. Vegan, Paleo, ketogenic, brand name diets, carb cycling, intermittent fasting, the list goes on... But any of them that work only do so insomuch as they help you maintain a caloric deficit. Different people and different personalities respond well mentally or emotionally to different structures, some people find it easy to stick to one diet over another, but the end result is the same.

You will burn calories just by living, so any exercise you do on top of that simply adds to your caloric burn and can help widen the gap. While exercise is not necessary for weight loss, and not even a large factor compared to diet, people who incorporate exercise into their weight loss regimen are more likely to keep the weight off.

So, walking and jogging are good for you mentally and physically and can help in weight loss, but only if you make an effort to eat well and not simply replace the calories you burn by eating more.

Thank you for the reply, very much appreciated. I'm going to try a no carbs diet for a couple of weeks. I go to the gym 4 times a wk an excerciise at home 4 times a wk. I more want to lose body fat because my weight isn't so bad but everyone wants to get rid of a gut and back fat lol hardest parts!!

no carbs is tough! it can make it easier to achieve a caloric deficit, though. I used carb cycling, where i would switch between high and low carb days, also alternating heavier lifting on high carb days with cardio or rest days on low carb days. There is a lot of conflicting info out there about how necessary carbs really are for various functions. In the end, though, fat loss is a result of a caloric deficit, so whatever works for you to achieve that, while hopefully still meeting basic nutritional requirements, then that should work.
