Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Diet
Calorie restriction to reduce weight gain
Behavioral: diet
calorie restriction to reduce weight gain
Experimental: Exercise
Exercise to reduce weight gain
Behavioral: Exercise
Exercise to reduce weight gain

Detailed Description:

Obese pregnant women (BMI > 30) are randomized to exercise, diet or control (1:1:1) in order to reduce weight gain during pregnancy. Shortly after birth, tissue composition will be measured (DEXA)in 200 infants (65 from each group). The amount of fat tissue is subsequently analyzed between the groups and compared to results from another 65 infants of lean mothers
