Thursday, December 16, 2004 6:55 am Email this article
Diet-plus-exercise causes an average weight loss of about 4 pounds more than diet alone, and modestly greater reductions in abdominal fat than either diet or exercise alone, however, this has not been found independent of weight loss according to the U.S. NIH's Obesity Guidelines (p. xxii and 47-8). Diet-plus-exercise vs exercise: 3-14 lbs more than diet alone
In five out of six studies diet-plus-exercise caused 7.9 to 13.7 pounds more weight loss than exercise alone. (p. 47).
Diet-plus-exercise vs exercise: 3-7 lbs more than diet alone in longer studies
Three longer studies lasting nine months to two years found people engaged in diet-plus-exercise lost 3.3 to 6.6 pounds more weight loss than those using exercise only. (p. 47)
