Abstract

Recent clinical trials demonstrated that physical activity plays an important role in type 2 diabetes prevention. Their activity goals resembled public health recommendations: 150 min weekly of moderate intensity physical activity (brisk walking). The flexibility of this goal will make it easier to adopt by individuals of all ages and backgrounds and has the potential for being maintained over time.
