In a nutshell: This study examined the associations between differing amounts of physical activity with weight gain prevention in older men. Physical activity levels were measured against the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and US federal guidelines. The study found that men who had lower levels of physical activity were more likely to gain weight than men satisfying the 2002 IOM guidelines of >21 MET-h per week (~60 min day−1 of moderate-intensity physical activity).
