    Throwing exercise into the equation

    Like a muscle, willpower has limited capacity, and when ① exercised extensively it can become worn out. Also like a muscle, the primary fuel your brain uses to exercise willpower is sugar from your blood. So when your blood sugar is low (i.e., when you're hungry, ② which when you're dieting is pretty much all the time), your willpower is weaker than ever, and the only way to fix it is to eat. You can see the difficulty this can cause when you're making food decisions. ③ Throwing exercise into the equation something dieters use to intentionally burn more calories (i.e., use more blood sugar) only makes things more ④ problematically. Baumeister and Tierney call it a nutritional catch-22: the less you eat and the more you exercise, the less likely you will be to make good food decisions in the end and ⑤ maintain your weight loss.
    =================================================
    What does this sentence mean? If this can be understood, the whole paragraph will be clear. Does it mean like "less food+ more exercise = weight loss"?

    No, it means that it will make it harder to maintain any weight loss.
    Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.

    Throwing exercise into the equation means "adding the practice of exercise...."

    No — it's not a mathematical text.
