Physical activity and public health. A recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Sports Medicine.
Every US adult should accumulate 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week.
Growth, Maturation and Physical Activity
This book introduces the Basics of Growth, Maturation, and Performance, and discusses age- and sex-Associated Variation in Growth and Performance.
Genetic studies of body mass index yield new insights for obesity biology
A genome-wide association study and Metabochip meta-analysis of body mass index (BMI), a measure commonly used to define obesity and assess adiposity, in up to 339,224 individuals provide strong support for a role of the central nervous system in obesity susceptibility.
Lifestyle, diabetes, and cardiovascular risk factors 10 years after bariatric surgery
As compared with conventional therapy, bariatric surgery appears to be a viable option for the treatment of severe obesity, resulting in long-term weight loss, improved lifestyle, and, except for hypercholesterolemia, amelioration in risk factors that were elevated at baseline.
Clinical guidelines on the identification, evaluation, and treatment of overweight and obesity in adults.
The aim of this guideline is to provide useful advice on how to achieve weight reduction and maintenance of a lower body weight and to note that prevention of further weight gain can be a goal for some patients.
Effects of bariatric surgery on mortality in Swedish obese subjects.
Bariatric surgery for severe obesity is associated with long-term weight loss and decreased overall mortality.
Defining the role of common variation in the genomic and biological architecture of adult human height
The results indicate a genetic architecture for human height that is characterized by a very large but finite number of causal variants, including mTOR, osteoglycin and binding of hyaluronic acid.
Waist circumference and abdominal sagittal diameter: best simple anthropometric indexes of abdominal visceral adipose tissue accumulation and related cardiovascular risk in men and women.

These data demonstrate a dose-response association between sitting time and mortality from all causes and CVD, independent of leisure time physical activity and physicians should discourage sitting for extended periods.
New genetic loci link adipose and insulin biology to body fat distribution
A genome-wide association meta-analyses of traits related to waist and hip circumferences in up to 224,459 individuals implicated adipogenesis, angiogenesis, transcriptional regulation and insulin resistance as processes affecting fat distribution, providing insight into potential pathophysiological mechanisms.
