Women who lost and maintained at least a 10 percent weight loss after two years exercised an average of 48 minutes per day and reduced their calorie intake to an average of 1365 calories per day according to a study from researchers at University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.
Women who gained weight exercised an average of 18 minutes per day and ate an average of 1809 calories per day.
Women who lost up to 4.9 percent of their body weight exercised an average of 28 minutes per day and reduced their calorie intake to 1638 calories per day.
Women who lost 5 to 9.9 percent of their body weight exercised an average of 26 minutes per day and reduced their calorie intake to 1452 calories per day. Subjects
Subjects: 201 overweight and obese women, 21-45 yrs-old
The study involved 201 women who were overweight or obese with a BMI of 27 to 40, who were 21- to 45-years-old and who reported exercising less than 20 minutes per day, 3 days per week for the previous six months.
The women were randomly assigned to one of four exercise groups and were told to reduce their calorie intake to 1200 to 1500 calories per day.
A 10 percent weight loss after two years was achieved by more than one-fourth (28 percent) of the women.
