The study included 3,554 men and women, ages 18 to 30 years. The researchers found that over the study period, maintaining high levels of activity was associated with smaller gains in BMI and waist circumference compared with low activity levels after adjustment for race, baseline BMI, age, education, cigarette smoking status, alcohol use and energy intake.
These findings were published in the December 15 issue of JAMA
