Findings from contemporary randomized controlled trials also demonstrate that lifestyle interventions involving modification of exercise and dietary behaviors yield superior improvements in relevant quality of life outcomes relative to either intervention alone.

Health and exercise professionals have an important role to play in the promotion of physical activity (PA), in that they can provide PA advice to their patients and clients. In order for them to do this, they must be aware of, and understand, current PA guidelines and messages.
