Significantly lower physical activity levels in obese adolescents contribute to continued obesity

ime each day engaged in moderate-to-high intensity activities than did normal-weight boys. Among adolescent girls, the number of minutes spent continuously engaged in moderate-to-high level activities was 73% lower in obese girls than in those of normal weight.

The results of the study suggest that the energy cost of physical activity is the same for both obese and nonobese persons, even after adjustments for such factors as the additional energy required to sustain movement in an individual with a larger body mass. The intensity and duration of physical activity on a long-term basis may be important to maintaining energy balance in a society where unrestricted food consumption is always available.
