Based on self-reported height and weight, 25 percent of students were either overweight (11 percent) or at risk for becoming overweight (14 percent).

However, 43 percent of students were trying to lose weight and 19 percent of students were trying to maintain their current weight.

Female students were less likely than male students to be overweight, but more likely to be trying to lose weight.

Trying to lose weight was associated with vigorous physical activity (OR = 1.5), strengthening exercises (OR = 2.2), and cigarette smoking (OR = 1.4) among female students; and vigorous physical activity (OR = 1.6), strengthening exercises (OR = 1.8), and eating > or =5 servings/day of fruits and vegetables (OR = 1.5) among male students.

Among students trying to lose weight or stay the same weight, only 62 percent of females and 41 percent of males combined exercise with a reduced fat and calorie diet, while 32 percent of females and 17 percent of males used unhealthy weight control methods (fasting, diet pills, vomiting, or laxatives).

Weight Management Study - Conclusions

Efforts to promote healthy weight management among adolescents are needed and should place greater emphasis on combining physical activity with a reduced fat and calorie diet, increasing fruit and vegetable consumption, and discouraging smoking and other unhealthy weight control practices.

Weight Loss & Weight Management
An increase in physical activity is an important part of your weight loss program. Physical activity improves your muscle/fat ratio - thus raising metabolism for easier weight loss - and boosts your motivation to maintain the weight you lose.
