Daily Self-Weighing for Obesity Management in Primary Care

2019-08-08 15:44:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Many adults with obesity continue to gain weight even though they do not want to. This project will test the effects of a primary care intervention in which people with obesity receive an electronic scale and recommendations to weigh themselves daily. This will help us understand whether daily self-weighing might be a way to prevent continued weight gain.
