Abstract/OtherAbstract:
To examine whether smokers' physical activity is related to weight change following a quit attempt. Method: Data were analyzed for participants (n=683) of a randomized controlled trial comparing the efficacy of different smoking cessation pharmacotherapies (Wisconsin, 2005-2008). Activity (assessed via pedometry) and body weight were measured in the days surrounding the quit day and again one year later, at which time 7-day point-prevalence abstinence from smoking was assessed. We examined the effects of quitting, physical activity, and their interaction, on one-year weight change with relevant covariate adjustment. Results: Participants were predominantly female (57%), 46±11years of age (mean±SD), and took 7544±3606 steps/day at baseline. Of those who quit, 87% gained weight. A main effect was found for quitting (p<0.001), but not physical activity (p=0.06). When pattern of activity was examined across the 1-year study period, quitters who decreased their physical activity had significantly greater weight gain than quitters who increased their physical activity (p<0.01) or maintained a high level of activity (p =0.02). Conclusion: Physical activity is associated with an attenuation of the weight gain that often occurs after quitting smoking.
