According to The American Dietetic Association, physical activity should be part of a comprehensive weight management program. Physical activity should include 30 minutes or more of moderate intensity activity on most, and preferably, all days of the week, unless medically contraindicated. Activity contributes to weight loss, may decrease abdominal fat, and may help with weight maintenance.
