If you use the standard debug configuration, check the linker page of
the program options dialog. By default "include debug information" is
checked, and that increases the size of the executable massively.

The IDE debugger does not use debug info added to the executable
itself, and even if you want to debug an application running under an
external debugger you can instruct the linker to put the debug
information into a separate file.
