Featured Physical Activity Guidelines Blog | A Key Lifestyle Behavior for Prevention of Weight Gain and Obesity

Jul 24, 2019

New information on this topic was recently published in MSSE and titled "Physical Activity and the Prevention of Weight Gain in Adults," one of ACSM’s 14 new pronouncements that present the science behind the updated Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. Authored primarily by ACSM subject matter experts, each pronouncement addresses a specific topic, sharing the scientific evidence and identifying key knowledge gaps for future research. Health care and fitness professionals as well as basic and applied scientists can use the pronouncements to plan future research projects, cite current evidence for papers and grants and/or inform the development and delivery of effective interventions.

In this blog by co-author John Jakicic, Ph.D., FACSM, from the University of Pittsburgh, you’ll read a summary of this pronouncement and the evidence behind changes to the guidelines regarding physical activity as an effective lifestyle behavior to prevent or minimize weight gain in adults.
