The author included this statement about the study:

The reason for this was that the "no exercise" group had a larger decrease in calorie expenditure caused by the weight loss than the other two groups and the resistance only had the lowest change.
Based on my own experience, more time exercising means less time to sit around mindlessly eating. I'm only half-joking.
