The authors explore our understanding of the part played by physical activity in preventing obesity through suitable activity or fostering obesity through reduced levels of activity. The international group of authors review physical activity as an important part of obesity on the one hand and appropriate weight on the other. The role of physical activity and exercise in those age-groups, and the natural history of weight and overweight during growth and development, are among essential public health topics under review here

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
