The aim of this clinical review was to examine the problem of obesity in the context of energy balance, and specifically to examine the role of increased physical activity in altering energy balance in obese individuals. The control of obesity depends on a regulatory axis involving feedback control between: food intake, nutrient turnover, energy expenditure, and body fat stores.
