Diet Matters More than Exercise in Battle over Obesity

Government guidelines on obesity should focus on diet as well as exercise, according to the head of the NHS.

.

Simon Stevens, chief executive of NHS England, was agreeing with comments made by a Conservative peer while giving evidence at a Lords committee hearing on the sustainability of the health service.

.

“We have a big, big problem with diet and the trouble is that the advice of the Department of Health and Nice [The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence] … they are still talking about diet and exercise,” Lord McColl of Dulwich, emeritus professor of surgery at Guy’s Hospital in London, said. “Exercise has very little to do with it. It is good for other things but not for reducing obesity.”

.

Admitting that his “reading of the evidence is the same”, Mr Stevens added: “It needs to be both. We’re not going to deal with the pressures of obesity simply by arguing for greater exercise. We have got to change dietary intake.”

.

Nice encourages adults to do at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity on five or more days a week, in one workout or several sessions lasting ten minutes or more.

.

The guidelines state: “To prevent obesity, most people may need to do 45-60 minutes of moderate intensity activity a day, particularly if they do not reduce their energy intake.

.

“People who have been obese and have lost weight may need to do 60-90 minutes of activity a day to avoid regaining weight.”
