Abstract:

"This report presents findings from a review of literature on the effectiveness of interventions to increase physical activity participation and (healthy) eating behaviour, and decrease overweight and obesity. These health-related behaviours have been found to be important factors in the prevention of type 2 diabetes and other chronic disease conditions ...
