Question Cardio or eat less?

Hi guys, out of curiosity is it better to do cardio or just eat a little less if you want to lose some weight. I ask this as I’m wondering whether cardio causes too much interference or not and potentially causes you to be too rundown? Cheers!

Europeans here? Protein powder calculater? Is 1 dl of whey protein powder 50 grams?

How many grams is 1 dl of whey protein? Some say 50g. So that protein powder that contains 80g per 100g... 1 dl would give you 40 grams of protein. Do you think it's correct?
