    WEIGHT LIFTING

    No evidence that weight lifting is effective for weight loss: American College of Sports Medicine

    "Research evidence does not support [ Resistance Training ] as effective for weight loss with or without diet restriction" notes the American College of Sports Medicine Position Stand on Appropriate Physical Activity Intervention Strategies For Weight Loss And Prevention Of Weight Regain For Adults that was published in February 2009. (Noted in Table 1 on page 460.)

    "There is limited evidence that [ Resistance Training ] promotes gain or maintenance of lean mass and loss of body fat during energy restriction and there is some evidence [ Resistance Training ] improves chronic disease risk factors (i.e., HDL [ cholesterol ], LDL [ cholesterol ], insulin, blood pressure)," they continue.

    EXERCISE

    Exercise of 30-45 minutes per day may help to maintain weight loss, and ‘more is better’

    "[ Physical activity ] for weight maintenance after weight loss. Some studies support the value of [ approximately ] 200- to 300 [ minutes per week ] [ or 30-45 minutes per day ] [ physical activity ] during weight maintenance to reduce weight regain after weight loss, and it seems that ‘more is better’ " notes the American College Of Sports Medicine Position Stand on Appropriate Physical Activity Intervention Strategies For Weight Loss And Prevention Of Weight Regain For Adults that was published in February 2009. (Noted in Table 1 on page 460.)

    "However, there are no correctly designed, adequately powered, energy balance studies to provide evidence for the amount of [ physical activity ] to prevent weight regain after weight loss," they continue. Read the entire article | Email this article

    EXERCISE

    Maximum weight loss with exercise seen after 6 months

    Here is a corrected chart from a two-year study on the effects of exercise intensity and duration from a study previous written about.

    Note that those with high duration lost more weight than those with moderate duration -- 9-11 percent after six months versus 8 percent, and 7-8 percent after two years versus 4-5 percent.

    Also note that the maximum weight loss was seen after six months. This is true for most studies with diet pills as well.

    The lesson to be learned here is that if you have been on a diet and exercise program or taking a diet pill for six months and still want to lose more weight, you need to do something else because you have probably reached your maximum weight loss with the program that you are on.

    INTERMITTENT EXERCISE

    Exercising multiple times per day better at reducing the effects of a high-fat diet

    Mice fed a high-fat diet who swam for 30 minutes, three times per day, four hours apart had greater reductions in cholesterol, food intake, body weight gain, belly fat, and fatty liver than mice that swam continuously for 90 minutes once a day according to a two-month study from Federal University in São Paulo, Brazil.

    "The major finding of this study is that [intermittent exercise] was more efficient than [continuous exercise] in reducing the adverse effects of high-fat diet and sedentarism," the authors of the paper concluded.

    "The results may depend on the exercise, time of each session, age, gender, and experimental period," the authors also note. Read the entire article | Email this article

    CALORIES BURNED

    Obese women could burn an additional 300 calories per day if they stood more, sat less

    Resting metabolism in obese women was similar to that of lean women (1601 calories per day versus 1505 calories per day), however, obese women sat 2.5 hours more each day (12.7 hours versus 10.1 hours), stood 2 hours less each day (2.7 hours versus 4.7 hours) and spent half as much time in activity than lean women (2.6 hours versus 5.4 hours) according to a new study.

    This difference in activity accounted for an additional 300 calories burned in lean women.

    The authors of the study concluded that "If the obese women adopted the activity patterns of the lean women, including a modification of posture allocation, an additional 300 [calories] could be expended every day."
