    Women who lost weight and remained physically inactive were 1.4 times as likely to die during a 15-17 year follow-up as women whose lost weight and remained physically active according to data from the Copenhagen City Heart Study.

    “Overall, weight loss was associated with excess mortality when compared with weight stability,” the study concluded.

    “However, weight loss seemed less hazardous to survival among those who remained physically active or those who became active.”


    Subjects: 11,135 people of which 3078 overweight or obese participants lost weight or remained weight stable

    The study examined data from 11,135 people who participated in the Copenhagen City Heart Study In 1976-1978 and 1981-1983.

    “Of these, 3078 overweight or obese participants lost weight or remained weight stable from 1976-1978 to 1981-1983, and were without pre-existing diagnosis of diabetes, stroke, ischaemic heart disease or cancer in 1981-1983,” the paper noted.
