Active Comparator: 150 Minutes per Week
Performs 150 minutes of physical activity per week.
Behavioral: 150 Min/Week
Performs 150 min/wk of planned moderate intensity aerobic exercise.
Active Comparator: 225 Minutes per Week
Performs 225 minutes of physical activity per week.
Behavioral: 225 Min/Week
Performs 225 min/wk of planned moderate intensity aerobic exercise.
Active Comparator: 300 Minutes per Week
Performs 300 minutes of physical activity per week.
Behavioral: 300 Min/Week
Performs 300 min/wk of planned moderate intensity aerobic exercise.
- Prevention of Weight Regain [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]To compare the effectiveness of 3 exercise recommendations on the prevention of weight regain over 12 mos. subsequent to clinically significant weight loss (> 5%). We expect participants will regain weight in a dose-response manner, i.e. greatest, intermediate and least weight regain for the 150, 225, and 300 minute. groups, respectively.
- Gender Differences in Weight Regain [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]To evaluate gender differences in weight regain over 12 months in response to 3 exercise recommendations. Based on available preliminary data we expect men will regain less weight than women.
- Compensatory Changes to three exercise levels [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]Evaluating the impact of potential compensatory changes in daily physical activity and energy intake on weight regain in response to 3 exercise recommendations. Any observed compensatory responses would inform the development of subsequent targeted interventions.
