Aerobic Exercise Has Small Effect on Weight Loss
More than 66 percent of Americans are obese or overweight. Many experts blame physical inactivity for the obesity epidemic. Recreational levels of exercise, by itself, might not be effective for losing weight. A review of literature by scientists from McGill University in Canada concluded that moderate intensity aerobic exercise, without dieting, has modest effects on weight control. People typically lost about 4 pounds and about 1 inch in waist circumference following 6-12 months. Moderate intensity aerobic exercise is effective for lowering blood pressure in normalizing blood fats. It is beneficial in a weight loss program if combined with dietary restriction.
