How does exercising help you lose weight?

I am trying to lose weight. I just want to know how exercising works with it. Do I weight lose because of muscle activity? Is weight loss concerned with sweating only? How useful is exercising, for weight loss especially, if I am not sweating a lot?

Answer on How does exercising help you lose weight?

Metabolism speeds up and calories are burned at a faster rate during increased activity. If weight training is done, the growing muscles will continue to burn more calories 24/7 even while at rest. Sweating will cause weight loss in the form of dehydration, which is the reason to stay hydrated.
