    "some people believe that the benefits of the a healthy diet outweigh that of regular exercise "

    ..this sentence is wrong ..and it becomes correct by replacing " that of regular exercise" with " those of regular exercise"

    but I dont understand what is the reason behind this.... is it because "those " is plural ..and "that" singular ...

    You are talking about benefits of healthy diet vs benefits of regular exercise. Hence, those is required.
