Abstract: Physical activity and weight loss are considered cornerstones of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) management programmes. However, there is much controversy and debate surrounding the relative importance of each of these factors in the treatment of T2DM. This review provides an overview of the evidence surrounding the relative importance of physical activity and weight loss in the management of T2DM and highlights key ways of initiating physical activity behaviour change.
