Overweight is a complicated issue!

The most important take-home message

  • Physical activity per se is not necessarily an effective means of weight reduction for all. Nevertheless, it should be emphasized that increased physical activity gives health benefits and reduced risk of the most prevalent chronic diseases and mortality, even without weight reduction.

  • Physical activity has been reported to reduce weight to a moderate extent (5 – 10% of original body weight, appears to be achievable without calorie restrictions).
