The author offers insights on a study which examined whether the effects of exercise were additive to the benefits of diet-induced weight loss. Topics covered include the percentage of energy expenditure that came from exercise, the benefit of weight loss in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and the analysis of whether the hormonal and metabolic changes that occur with weight loss changed differentially with diet and exercise.
