Exercise Group (20 KKW)
Exercise group will obtain 20 KKW, perform in 4-5 sessions per week for approximately 50-70 minutes per session.
Exercise Group (8 KKW)
One exercise group will obtain 8KKW (kcal/kg/week) over 3-4 sessions per wee, which will result in each session lasting approximately 30 minutes
This group will be instructed to maintain their baseline level of exercise.
- A Comparison of the effects of energy balance with three groups. [ Time Frame: 6 months after screening ]
A comparison of three groups for the effects of energy balance: 1. Healthy Living, 2. Recommended dose exercise, and 3. High dose exercise. Random assignment is determined by chance.
Healthy Living Group: Information tips on a variety of topics, including stress management, the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables, and other health related matters. This information is sent directly to your cell phone or email address throughout the study. Encouragements are sent to attend monthly seminars on various health topics at Pennington. Maintain a baseline level of exercise throughout the study.
Recommended Dose Exercise: 3 t0 4 low-intensity sessions per week, each lasting about 30 minutes, at Pennington Fitness and Wellness Center. All exercise will be done on a treadmill.
High Dose Exercise: 4 to 5 high-intensity session s per week, each lasting about 50-70 minutes, at Pennington Fitness and wellness center. All exercise will be done on the treadmill.
