Researchers at the University of Copenhagen conducted a study on 60 moderately overweight Danish men to test how much exercise was needed to kick-start weight loss.
They had a third of the men exercise hard enough on a treadmill or bike to break a sweat for 30 minutes a day; another third did an hour of exercise a day, while the last group did no exercise.
The researchers found that the first group lost an average of 8 pounds over 13 weeks, compared to an average weight loss of 6 pounds among men who worked out for 60 minutes a day. The results appear in the American Journal of Physiology.
