Physical Activity and Weight Loss

The American College of Sports Medicine has updated its Position on physical activity and weight loss and weight regain after loss. Long-term weight loss is enhanced by engaging in more than 250 minutes (4 hours) of moderate intensity physical activity per week. Weight maintenance is enhanced by the continuation of the same amount on a consistent basis.

PositiveTip: Think about it! Just over half an hour of physical activity each day will significantly enhance weight-loss and weight-maintenance.
