Samenvatting (EN)

This line of research includes intervention projects in the general Dutch population aimed at balancing diet and physical activity for prevention of weight gain. To optimize future prevention strategies, we perform studies to identify the determinants of weight gain and obesity, as well as studies on the determinants of food consumption. These studies are performed both in developed and developing countries. We also study the effects of body fatness and its distribution on metabolic risk factors, incidence of disease and health-related outcomes such as physical functioning in old age.
