Recommendation ID
What is the effect on weight outcomes of a collection of individually modifiable dietary habits, physical activity and other lifestyle behaviours?
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
Mixed methods research is needed that considers the acceptability and adherence to changes for different population groups, potential interactions between behaviours that may make changes to behaviour easier or harder to sustain, and any effect on health inequalities. Information is needed on processes for change, for example, effective practical strategies for reducing dietary energy density and increasing leisure time physical activity.
