Community health-promotion interventions with physical activity: does this approach prevent obesity?

Community health-promotion interventions with physical activity: does this approach prevent obesity?

Scandinavian Journal of Nutrition 46(4): 173-177

Prevention of weight gain is a primary strategy in tackling the obesity epidemic. This review summarizes results of community interventions for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, with dietary changes and increased physical activity as target behaviours, and change in obesity as one outcome variable. A Medline search was used to identify studies. The focus behaviour was physical activity, but all of the 5 selected interventions also had dietary changes as an essential component.
