How Much Exercise Do I Need to Maintain My Weight?
If you are already at a healthy weight, you probably want to know what you can do to maintain your weight. Physical activity is vital for weight maintenance. Adults should get at least 2 ½ hours of moderate intensity physical activity per week or about 30 minutes a day, five days a week.
