Cutting weight?

I'm told that for hundreds of dollars, I can lighten my 29er from it's current weight of 26 lbs down to 22 lbs. Alternatively, I can rid myself of 4 lbs just by dieting, and it would cost me nothing. So my question is, does taking weight off the bike make more of a difference during the ride than taking an equal amount of weight off the rider?
