The second group was asked to spend energy -that means exercise- by 16% in the first 3 months and then by 20% for the remaining 9 months. During the search period their heart rate was monitored.

The results of the research

The calorie restriction group shed 17 pounds and exercise group shed 14 pounds. But the diet group lost bone density at the spine, hips and legs. There was no significant bone density loss among the exercise group. The results appeared in the archieves of internal medicine.
