In a remarkable study of more than 120,000 men and women followed for 20 years, researchers have confirmed that small changes in lifestyle can significantly impact long-term weight control. Participants were assessed every 4 years. Not suprisingly, physical activity contributed to 1.76 pounds of weight loss every four years. Each alcoholic drink per day, added 0.41 pounds and each hour of television viewing per day added 0.31 pounds over the same time.
