RETRACTED International Scholarly Research Notices has retracted this article. The article was found to contain a substantial amount of material from the following published articles: -Tappy, L., Binnert, C. and Schneiter, P. 2003 ‘Energy expenditure, physical activity and body-weight control’, Proceedings of the Nutrition Society, 623, pp. 663–666. doi: 10.1079-PNS2003280,- and -James A. Levine: Nonexercise activity thermogenesis NEAT: environment and biology American Journal of Physiology - Endocrinology and Metabolism Published 1 May 2004 Vol. 286 no. 5, E675–E685 DOI: 10.1152-ajpendo.00562.2003.- The first author Carmine Finelli accepts responsibility for this and apologizes to Tappy et al. and Levine.

We review the current concepts about energy expenditure and evaluate the physical activity PhA in the context of this knowledge and the available literature. Regular PhA is correlated with low body weight and low body fat mass. The negative fat balance is probably secondary to this negative energy balance. Nonexercise activity thermogenesis NEAT and physical activity, that is crucial for weight control, may be important in the physiology of weight change. An intriguing doubt that remains unresolved is whether changes in nutrient intake or body composition secondarily affect the spontaneous physical activity.
