Regular physical activity can decrease a woman’s chance to become obese later in life, according to a study published in the December 2010 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

In this twenty-year period observational study, the researchers have noted that young women who engage in regular physical activity have lesser tendency in developing age-related weight gain and obesity during their middle-age years compared to their non-physically active counterparts.

Furthermore, the researchers have also noted that men and women who immerse themselves in regular high-intensity physical training are less prone in developing weight gain and obesity later in life compared to those individuals who only do light to moderate regular physical activity during their younger adult years. In fact, it has been shown in this study that men and women who devote 150 minutes of their time per week  have 1.8 and 4.7 kg less weight compared to those who decided to stay as couch potatoes.

The researchers have proven in this study that in order to prevent weight gain, patients must engage in more physical activities with advancing age.
