The effect of a weight gain prevention intervention on moderate-vigorous physical activity among black women: the Shape Program
Authors & Journal
International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
“Participation in moderate-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) may be an important strategy for preventing weight gain [17–20]. However, only a limited number of weight gain prevention interventions have focused on and/or have assessed the impact of the intervention on participants’ physical activity . Research in this area is needed because physical activity is a weight maintenance strategy that may have important spillover health benefits.”
