Daily Brisk Walking Can Help Prevent Obesity?

By Editor, April 2, 2012

Scientists know that 50% of obesity cases are influenced by genetics, but can this be overturned? In other words, even if you have the doomed genes, can you still have a healthy weight? Or no matter what you do, will you put on the pounds?

At first glance, the study suggests that a one-hour brisk walk can prevent obesity. The overall message coming out of this study is that we don't have to feel doomed with the genes we have, and a little exercise goes a long way. However, effects of this exercise are limited and unfortunately don't completely override the detrimental consequences of having "obesity" genes. For example, for a 6 ft. man weighting 200 lbs., the benefits of exercise were as little as 0.4 pounds to counteract the effects of his genetic makeup adding about 1 lbs. to his weight.

 

Do You See Yourself Losing ...

Click on your choice below and see real people with real success stories:

> 30 to 39 lbs.?

 

> 60 to 69 lbs.?

> 40 to 49 lbs.?

 

> 70 to 79 lbs.?

> 50 to 59 lbs.?

> 80 to 99 lbs.?

> 100+ lbs.?

 

However, if you think that for every 2 hours that you sit in front of your television, you increase your weight by 0.2 lbs., that probably represents more than one pound per week. From this point of view, going out for exercise seems to be the obvious option! On top of adding to the body of knowledge that physical exercise is good for you, it can be inferred from this study that people with "obesity" genes need more exercise or less calories than people with normal genes to maintain the same weight.

This study presents some limitations though. It's difficult to separate exercise from any other important factors, such as healthy lifestyle, smoking, drinking, etc. Most likely, the overall results are a combination of several factors, not just exercise. Further research is needed, possibly comparing how people with the same genetic make-up react to different forms of exercise.

In terms of conclusions from this study, the most obvious one is not necessarily to go for a brisk walk, but just don't stay for hours sitting in front of your television. Have an active lifestyle.
