Workout Advise to maintain weight loss

Through a research article posted by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM); it states that the average adult should excise between 150 – 250 min/wk. This averages to around 30 minutes of exercise per day, however to maintain weight loss the and prevent weight gain, it suggests an average of 80 minutes per day of moderate intensity physical activity. This would calculate to 200-300 min/wk. This suggests that once weight is lost, it takes a greater amount of physical activity to keep the weight off! ACSM position Stand
