Weight Loss & Physical Activity

Several weight loss studies address the role of physical exercise in losing weight and improving health. One study also suggests that adults can exercise in several short periods during the day to get the physical activity necessary to maintain weight loss.

Weight Loss & Exercise Study (1)
A weight loss study by Brown University School of Medicine suggested that higher levels of activity may be needed to promote long-term weight loss than had previously been thought. Former recommendations of burning up to 1,000 kcal/week may not be sufficient to maintain weight loss successfully. Data from the National Weight Control Registry-a voluntary registry of 2,500 individuals who have lost on average 60 pounds and kept it off for more than one year-showed that expending an average of 2,800 kcal/week (equal to about 60 minutes of moderate physical activity per day) was associated with long-term weight loss. It revealed that short bouts of physical exercise throughout the day is as effective in maintaining weight loss as longer bouts of physical exercise performed once a day in overweight women. This study has practical implications because it may be easier for many people to increase their physical activity for short intervals during the day than to set aside a full hour for exercise.

Weight Loss & Exercise Study (2)
Another study by The Cooper Institute, Dallas, indicated that physical exercise has benefits independent of weight loss itself. Exercise improves cardiovascular fitness, which is directly related to decreased risk of death from heart disease. In fact, the study showed that obese persons who were physically fit had a lower mortality rate than lean persons who were sedentary.
