More than one billion adults are overweight and obese worldwide, with prevalence increasing in most countries. Obese adults are at increased risk for developing diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The world is now engaged in all aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has resulted in increased rates of greater severity of obesity.
Physical activity strategies including exercise prescription have been largely linked to improvements in the parameters of obesity. Additionally, nutritional strategies have the potential to the improve body composition parameters and also the synergic effects on preventing obesity with physical activity intervention.
In this Special Issue on “Physical activity and nutrition strategies for preventing overweight and obesity in adult populations”, we are seeking unpublished works, including physical activity and nutrition strategies illustrating new clinical and physiological knowledge or synergistic effects for preventing obesity in adult populations. We will consider studies utilizing new digital technologies, clinical trials, interventions, observational studies, epidemiological studies, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses.
