Increased fMRI food cue reactivity in obesity, i.e. higher responses to high- vs. low-calorie food images, is a promising marker of the dysregulated brain reward system underlying enhanced susceptibility to obesogenic environmental cues. Recently, it has also been shown that weight loss interventions might affect fMRI food cue reactivity and that there is a close association between the alteration of cue reactivity and the outcome of the intervention. Here we tested whether fMRI food cue reactivity could be used as a marker of diet-induced early changes of neural processing in the striatum that are predictive of the outcome of the weight loss intervention. To this end we investigated the relationship between food cue reactivity in the striatum measured one month after the onset of the weight loss program and weight changes obtained at the end of the six-month intervention. We observed a significant correlation between BMI change measured after six months and early alterations of fMRI food cue reactivity in the striatum, including the bilateral putamen, right pallidum, and left caudate. Our findings provide evidence for diet-induced early alterations of fMRI food cue reactivity in the striatum that can predict the outcome of the weight loss intervention.

The present study examined whether a web-based intervention could promote weight-loss maintenance, after weight loss. The study was a two-phase, 27-month, randomized controlled trial conducted in Ibar...
Obesity is prevalent among a third of US adults and a leading indicator for many chronic diseases. Self-efficacy is important for non-surgical weight loss interventions, but there is less information ...
To compare weight change in a lifestyle-based weight management programme between participants taking weight-gaining, weight-neutral/loss and mixed diabetes medications.
Child obesity is more common in low-income families. Early childhood is highly influenced by the family-based environment that mostly includes parents. This systematic review synthesized and examined ...
Persons with serious mental illnesses (SMI) such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder have an increased risk of obesity and related chronic diseases and die 10-20years earlier than the overall popula...
Whether greater weight loss is as a result of a smaller reduction in energy expenditure with caloric restriction is not known. Resting energy expenditure and 24-hour energy expenditure var...
This is to pilot test a weight loss intervention in obese patients with poorly controlled asthma. Obesity is a risk factor for the development of asthma (approximately 250,000 cases per y...
There are few studies that look at sustained weight loss in the adolescent population. This study uses a multidisciplinary approach along with pharmacotherapy (use of Meridia)to motivate ...

Intractable VOMITING that develops in early PREGNANCY and persists. This can lead to DEHYDRATION and WEIGHT LOSS.
Procedures and programs that facilitate the development or skill acquisition in infants and young children who have disabilities, who are at risk for developing disabilities, or who are gifted. It includes programs that are designed to prevent handicapping conditions in infants and young children and family-centered programs designed to affect the functioning of infants and children with special needs.
