In a nutshell: A RCT among 439 overweight-to-obese postmenopausal sedentary women to determine the differing effects of a calorie-reduced, low-fat diet (D), a moderate-intensity, aerobic exercise program (E), or the combination of both interventions (D+E), versus a no-lifestyle-change control group (C) on change in body weight and composition. It was found that amongst this group, lifestyle-change involving diet, exercise, or both over 1 year improved body weight and adiposity, with the greatest change arising from the combined intervention.
