ACSM Position Stand on the Appropriate Intervention Strategies for Weight Loss and Prevention of Weight Regain for Adults. Med. Sci. Sports Exerc., Vol. 33, No. 12, 2001, pp. 2145–2156. In excess of 55% of adults in the United States are classified as either overweight (body mass index 25–29.9 kg·m ) or obese (body mass index 30 kg·m ). To address this significant public health problem, the American College of Sports Medicine recommends that the combination of reductions in energy intake and… Expand

Appropriate Physical Activity Intervention Strategies for Weight Loss and Prevention of Weight Regain for Adults Position Stand
Overweight and obesity affects more than 66% of the adult population and is associated with a variety of chronic diseases. Weight reduction reduces health risks associated with chronic diseases andExpand
Effects of Aquatic Exercise and Walking in Sedentary Obese Women Undergoing a Behavioral Weight-Loss Intervention
TLDR
It is suggested that aquatic exercise in combination with walking can serve as an alternative to walking exercise alone for overweight women during periods of weight loss, and this can improve functional health status. Expand
American College of Sports Medicine Position Stand. Appropriate physical activity intervention strategies for weight loss and prevention of weight regain for adults.
TLDR
There is inadequate evidence to determine whether PA prevents or attenuates detrimental changes in chronic disease risk during weight gain, and no evidence from well-designed randomized controlled trials exists to judge the effectiveness of PA for prevention of weight regain after weight loss. Expand
Effect of exercise on total and intra-abdominal body fat in postmenopausal women: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Regular exercise such as brisk walking results in reduced body weight and body fat among overweight and obese postmenopausal women. Expand
Use of the Medifast Meal Replacement Program for Weight Loss in Overweight and Obese Clients: A Retrospective Chart Review of Three Medifast Weight Control Centers (MWCC)
TLDR
The MD MR plan, combined with the support and accountability available in the MWCC, is an efficacious program that promotes significant weight loss and improvements in body composition. Expand
Obesity and physical activity.
TLDR
Progress towards progression of overweight and obese patients to an adequate dose of physical activity needs to be incorporated into clinical interventions for weight control. Expand
Predictors of Compensatory Changes in Energy Balance following Exercise among Overweight and Obese, Sedentary Women
Although exercise produces an acute energy deficit, there is substantial variability in behavioral and biological responses to exercise that influence propensity for weight change. Indeed, someExpand
Impact of the LIFESTEPS Weight Management Program on Measures of Adiposity, Self-Efficacy, and Lifestyle Behaviors
TLDR
Outcomes for participants enrolled in the LIFESTEPS Weight Management Program decreased and self-efficacy increased, and programs that emphasize nutrition, physical activity, and behavior therapy, such as LIFestEPS, are appropriate options for weight loss. Expand
Management of Overweight and Obesity in Adults: Behavioral Intervention for Long-Term Weight Loss and Maintenance
  • A. Lang, E. Froelicher
  • Medicine
  • European journal of cardiovascular nursing : journal of the Working Group on Cardiovascular Nursing of the European Society of Cardiology
  • 2006
TLDR
Increasing evidence suggests that obesity is not simply a problem of will power or self-control but a complex disorder involving appetite regulation and energy metabolism that is associated with a variety of comorbid conditions. Expand
Circuit weight training vs jogging in metabolic risk factors of overweight/obese women.
TLDR
Both protocols improved CVD and metabolic risk factors and resisted exercise combined with aerobics should be considered for obese people. Expand

Severe vs moderate energy restriction with and without exercise in the treatment of obesity: efficiency of weight loss.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that MER may offer an advantage over SER because it produces a greater energy loss relative to energy deficit, and a deficit-efficiency factor (DEF) calculated as body energy loss/dietary energy deficit is developed to quantify the effectiveness of the weight-reduction interventions. Expand
Effects of lifestyle activity vs structured aerobic exercise in obese women: a randomized trial.
TLDR
A program of diet plus lifestyle activity may offer similar health benefits and be a suitable alternative to diet plus structured aerobic activity for obese women. Expand
Fat-free mass is maintained in women following a moderate diet and exercise program.
TLDR
Results suggest that moderate levels of caloric restriction, aerobic cycle exercise, and/or resistance training are equally effective in maintaining FFM while encouraging body mass loss. Expand
Prevalence of attempting weight loss and strategies for controlling weight.
TLDR
Most persons trying to lose weight are not using the recommended combination of reducing calorie intake and engaging in leisure-time physical activity 150 minutes or more per week, which is common concerns for US men and women. Expand
Lower fat intake as a predictor of initial and sustained weight loss in obese subjects consuming an otherwise ad libitum diet.
TLDR
The obese persons most likely to achieve and sustain weight loss on an ad libitum, reduced-fat diet are those who can substantially reduce fat intake, those with high initial levels of abdominal fat, and those who undertake regular moderate-intensity exercise. Expand
How much physical activity is needed to minimize weight gain in previously obese women?
TLDR
Retrospective analyses of weight regain as a function of energy expended in physical activity indicated a threshold for weight maintenance of 47 kJ x kg body wt(-1) x d(-1). Expand
Metabolic and weight-loss effects of a long-term dietary intervention in obese patients.
TLDR
The hypothesis that defined meal replacements can be used for successful, long-term weight control and improvements in certain biomarkers of disease risk is supported. Expand
Influence of exercise training on physiological and performance changes with weight loss in men.
TLDR
The data indicate that a weight-loss dietary regimen in conjunction with aerobic and resistance exercise prevents the normal decline in fat-free mass and muscular power and augments body composition, maximal strength, and maximum oxygen consumption compared with weight- loss induced by diet alone. Expand
Changes in energy expenditure resulting from altered body weight.
TLDR
Maintenance of a reduced or elevated body weight is associated with compensatory changes in energy expenditure, which oppose the maintenance of a body weight that is different from the usual weight, which may account for the poor long-term efficacy of treatments for obesity. Expand
Exercise in the treatment of obesity: effects of four interventions on body composition, resting energy expenditure, appetite, and mood.
TLDR
Women who received aerobic training displayed significantly smaller reductions in REE at Week 24 than did those who received strength training, and there were no other significant differences among conditions at any time on this variable or in changes in appetite and mood. Expand
