Nutritional and Physical Activity Advice for tourists

Various studies and meta-analysis have already doubted the positive effects of dieting on critical health indices such as Diabetes, Cholesterol, Triglycerides and Hypertension (Tomiyama, Ahlstrom, & Mann; 2013) with certain confounding factors (i.e. exercise, increased consumption of fruits and vegetables) being more likely to correspond to positive health effects in association to lifestyle factors.

Additionally, being overweight and obese (up to 35 > BMI) does not link to increased risks of morbidity and mortality (Flegal, Kit, Orbana, & Graubard, 2013) suggesting a detachment between weight loss efforts and potential health outcomes especially when lifestyle factors (like regular exercise and improved quality of food consumption) are in the focus of interventions aiming to improve health indices.
